Hello! My name is Gina, and I'm a native English speaker from the United States. I am a TESOL certified ESL instructor with 5 years of experience teaching adults of all levels in big classes, small groups, and 1-on-1 tutoring.
I choose to incorporate student-centered reading, writing, listening, and speaking activities that appeal to a variety of learning styles. I also focus on American pronunciation and sharing information about American culture. I design my lesson plans mindful of each individual student's needs and preferences.
All students start their language learning journey with preexisting knowledge, in the form of both linguistic and lived experiences, that contribute to the learning process. Giving students the opportunity to share their experiences promotes a more coherent, meaningful, and relevant adventure!
