Hello!!!!! Hola!!!!!! My name is Christina and I am a graduate certified TESOL instructor! I have three years experience teaching English as a Second Language to both children as well as adults. I have taught internationally in such locations including: South Korea, Nicaragua, Bolivia, and in Colombia, South America. I love teaching all levels and all ages and am constantly making improvements to my teaching style in order that my classes be as efficient and effective as possible.
In the time allotted we will cover grammar, sentence structure, pronunciation, as well as practice and enhance you or your family member's conversational skills!!! However, if there are particular areas in which you would like to focus (accent reduction, a trip to the grocery store, basic conversation vocabulary, upcoming job or college interview) I will hone in on the skills you will need in order to be successful.
****Classes range from beginner to advanced English.
****Any inappropriate or vulgar language or communication of any kind during class or through messaging will result in immediate termination of lessons. Please stay professional. Otherwise, this is not the place for you.
VERSION EN ESPAÑOL
Un poquito sobre yo mismo: He enseñado algunos años de ultramar en lugares tales como Asia y Sudamerica. Adicionalmente, estoy certificada en la enseñanza del inglés (TESOL). Siempre me han encantada los idiomas, igualmente soy un estudiante de idiomas. Aprender otro idioma puede ser uno de los mejores cosas para obtener. Así que, empecemos la aventura! Te espero!
*****Si usted habla ESPAÑOL, igual estoy disponible para enseñar los fundamentos... para que aprendas bien las reglas de la gramática !! 😉 Simplemente, mándame una mensaje para que empecemos! Hasta Pronto!
***IF YOU MISS A LESSON:
Just as you value your time, I also value our time together and will always be punctual unless there is an emergency or technical issue. However if you can not attend your lesson, PLEASE let me know at least 3 HOURS BEFORE your lesson if you need to reschedule class. Otherwise, I will need to charge you for that hour. Thank you for keeping this in mind. ***( Please do not, however, request to regularly have a class rescheduled within the 12 hour period prior to your lesson, as I must plan out my day accordingly as well).
***IF YOU ARE LATE FOR A LESSON:
Again, please keep in mind that time is a valuable thing. I will always wait in the classroom 15 minutes into the lesson before leaving. Please keep in mind if this happens you will also be charged for the entire lesson.
Thanks and I hope to hear from you soon!!!
