I help students feel comfortable and not afraid of practicing English. You can do it! ^.^
I was born and raised in the USA. My parents came from different countries, so I grew up speaking Spanish at home, and English everywhere else.
I have always been fascinated by other countries, cultures, languages, etc. I'm also interested in religion, being a Christian myself. I like to learn about how others think and in what they believe.
I have taught English for 3+ years in South Korea and 8 months in Poland. I learned a little Korean and Polish, not just to get by, but also to try to understand my students' struggles a little better.
English really is a crazy language. Let me help you (try) to make sense of it and understand it a little better. :)
Let's use YouTube videos to practice your English listening skills! Watch a short video ( <4 minutes) about any topic (i.e. American tipping culture, Daylight Saving Time, American Black Friday, etc.), answer a few questions, and discuss! ^.^
Let's talk! Let me know what you want to talk about, and I'll prepare more-than-enough for your chosen topic--just let me know what you want to talk about, ok?
Go through different sounds of English, practice them as often as you need, and you will sound more like a native speaker! I can help you, if you want to work at it.
Why do Americans say the things they do? Why is American slang different from British slang? Let's learn and explore together!
Want to sound like an American? I can help you (and take as much time as you need).
Let's start from the very beginning . . . Introductions, Speaking about yourself (i.e. job, school, family, likes, dislikes, hobbies, etc.) Speaking, writing, reading, listening, grammar, vocabulary, . . . we can start it all here.

I taught English to students from 5 - 75 years old, all in group classes in 2 cities: Cheonan and Jeju City In the children's classes, I assisted the Korean teacher, providing a model for authentic speech and activities to keep them motivated. In the adult classes; I kept attendance, followed the institute's strict methodology, gave and graded projects, quizzes, and exams, and occasionally introduced self-designed material, when time allowed.
I taught English in 5 public schools (2 elementary, 2 middle, and 1 high) in 2 villages in South Korea. I assisted the Korean teachers by setting up activities for the students, in order to motivate them to get excited about English, making learning easier and more fun.
I taught English to children, teens, and adults in group, small group, and individual classes in Kolobrzeg and Koszalin, Poland. They were from the entire spectrum of English levels (beginner - advanced). I followed textbooks, as well as designed my own teaching materials.
