Want to improve your speaking confidence? Having trouble learning English alone? Think learning English is important, but don't know where to begin? I can help!
Hi, my name is Cait, and I am an experienced English tutor from the USA. My lessons are:
-Fun and engaging
-Designed based on the needs of each student-customized lessons built just for you.
-Informal, humorous, and easygoing
One of my specialties is that I can type very, very fast! When a student makes a pronunciation or grammar mistake, I type the sentence containing the mistake in a word document. Later, we review and correct all of the mistakes together. After the lesson, each student has the option (upon request) to receive a personalized document via email showing mistakes and corrections, feedback, and (if they want one) a homework assignment.
I can help you with...
-Conversation/speaking and listening
-Pronunciation and Intonation
-Reading and writing
-Test preparation (IELTS)
-Job Interview Preparation
For the past 3 years I have been teaching students both on skype and in person. I love this job for 2 reasons:
1. I love to travel! I have been travelling for 6 years now and have spent time living, volunteering, working, and exploring all over Asia, Europe, Australia, and more. So far I have been to 24 countries! This job enables me to travel. I can do this job from anywhere!
2. When I teach on skype, it's almost like travelling without ever having to leave my computer. The world comes to me! Sometimes I think that I learn just as much as the students just from talking with people from different places and backgrounds.
Aside from teaching English and travelling, I like: rock climbing, bouldering, vegan baking and cooking, board games, visiting ecovillages, meditation/mindfulness practice, and learning about sustainable living and Buddhist philosophy.
Whoever and wherever you are, I would love to work with you! Hope to talk with you soon!
BA degree with concentrations in Religion, Psychology, and Environmental Studies. Wrote a 150-page thesis and received a grade of A-.
