ESL Teacher teaching kids using interactive method, and general English to all ages and levels
My name is Kristin. I have been teaching English for about 6 years now in 4 different countries. I have mainly taught General English classes, occasionally pronunciation and conversation classes to students with higher language proficiency, and Trinity, FCE and CAE exam preparation to high school students.
In my recent experience as an English teacher, I have learned to be a mentor, friend and a role model to my students. How did I achieve that? By simply planning engaging classes that showed the fun side of learning a new language. :)
My ideal classroom is full of laughter, collaboration and conversation, where everyone feels comfortable and is never afraid to ask, learn and improve.
Online teaching is a new experience for me, however I am ready to take up the new challenge, and I strongly believe that I have what it takes to succeed in benefiting online learners as well as I have managed to facilitate the learning of my in-class students.
