Hi there! My name is Kaleigh and it is so lovely to meet you! I'm a professional English teacher from Canada who is passionate about art, literature, travel, and culture. I have a TEFL certificate as well as a Bachelor's degree in English and a Master's degree in English. Because I'm an academic, I can offer my expertise in speaking and writing at the university level-- whether you need help with composing an essay, writing a script for a presentation, or accent reduction for a public speaking event, I will be there for you.
I aim to help you learn English through engaging and natural conversation. One of the biggest complaints I hear from English learners is that they do not know how to hold a REAL conversation in English. Textbooks will teach you how to talk about the weather, business, or perhaps food/dining, but rarely do they prepare you for fun, relatable conversation with real people. I can help you conduct more natural, fun and engaging conversation with English speakers by giving you tips on how to use slang and figures of speech, and by teaching you about English pop culture and/or traditional culture. I have lived in both Canada and the United Kingdom so if you are thinking about moving or traveling to one of these countries, I can give you real advice on how to make friends and impress others in these societies.
That's all for now, if you have any further questions or would like to request a specific lesson topic from me, please let me know. I am very flexible and want to help you with whatever it is that you need to reach your goals!
Love, Kaleigh. :)
I also work part time as an ESL teacher for children in China. I conduct my lessons entirely online and use presentations, videos, and engaging activities to ensure my students have as much fun as possible!
