I'm traveling in Asia from September to December, 2016! I will have an unusual SkimaTalk schedule :)
My name is Brittany and I am a friendly, CELTA-certified ESL teacher (certification for teaching English to adults) from Washington, DC, USA. I have taught students in France, South Korea, Canada, and The U.S. I have a background working for an African business association in the fields of corporate event planning and marketing. My specialties are writing and Business English, and I have helped many students with pronunciation and everyday speaking.
I am here to shape my lessons to your needs and help you reach your language goals!

In this position, I instructed mainly young adults who were improving their English fluency for university and work. I planned and taught intensive and semi-intensive courses (grammar-focused) designed to improve students' writing abilities, presentation strategies, and general communication skills. I designed and led in-depth discussion group classes (Inlingua "Oral Track" courses). Additionally, I planned and chaperoned extracurricular tourism trips for the students including visits to Washington, DC's historical museums.
In this position, I completed extended teaching practice post-CELTA. This included collaborative planning, peer observation, shared evaluation and feedback. Within this framework, I created lesson plans and taught students at two distinct levels (Beginner and Upper).
In this position, I taught ESL to middle and high school students in France.
