My name is Kyle and I'm from the United States. I've been teaching English for more than 3 years. I completed my bachelors in Anthropology, and I'm TEFL certified. I teach dedicated students who are of intermediate-advanced level. My teaching style is relaxed, patient and engaging. I make lessons comfortable and interesting for students, but I also correct your mistakes and challenge you.
As your English teacher, my goal is to help you reach fluency by giving you the guidance and feedback that you need, improving your English and increasing your confidence so that you'll be prepared for any situation! I emphasize: critical thinking, positivity, an open mind, curiosity and taking risk. We focus on exactly what you need to become a better English speaker, and I don't waste your time on things that aren't practical.
Our classes are a place where you can speak freely about whatever you want. The more our conversations relate to your interest, the more you will learn. We'll also be using news articles, Ted Talks, videos, books, interviews and other materials that you'll watch/read/listen to outside of class. During class, we'll discuss what you've read/watched in detail. The details are important but often overlooked. The real conversation that we will have in each lesson is what's most important and valuable for you. Throughout are conversation you will receive feedback and corrections on words and phrases that you have trouble with, along with personalized suggestions on how to improve general fluency.
In conclusion, I believe that learning a language is all about input and output. The amount of time that you spend listening, reading and speaking is going to directly affect the rate at which you are able to speak fluently. So, if you want to speak better, you have to speak more! There are no short cuts.
I’m looking forward to speaking with you and helping you achieve your goals.
