Introduction:

Enthusiastic and experienced English teacher with a passion for travel. I have international experience living in the Southeast Asian city of Singapore (2 years) and the European cities of Vienna, Austria (10 months) and Barcelona, Spain (3 months). I love working with students of all ages improve their English and build confidence in fluency.  I began with after school tutoring EFL Spanish students one-on-one in Barcelona. I planned lessons and helped them complete their homework. In Singapore, I taught young learners phonics through songs, games, and activities and delivered lessons with supplementary schoolwork for the primary students. Most of the students spoke English already or were knowledgable of English. However, I had many cases where I would manipulate our material to benefit students who were learning English as a foreign language. Since my first trip abroad, I have traveled to over 40 countries and I am eager to continue my adventures. I am currently seeking employment as an English Teacher overseas.
