*** NEW STUDENT SPECIAL - USE COUPON CODE "KRISTAL20" FOR 20% OFF YOUR FIRST ONE HOUR LESSON!
Hello everyone! My name is Kristal and I am a native English speaker from the United States. I have a Bachelors degree in English, and also a Masters degree in Negotiation, Conflict Resolution and Peacebuilding.
I taught high school English many years ago before making a career change, and I now work in procurement as a government contractor for the U.S. Department of Energy. I also currently work part-time as an online ESL teacher helping students from Venezuela, Costa Rica, Ghana and Syria. I am looking to forward to meeting new students from around the world here at Verbling!
I am very conversational in my teaching approach, and I believe the more "natural" the teaching style, the more enjoyable the learning experience becomes. My lessons are very fun, and my students always say they feel like they are talking to a friend, rather than sitting in a boring class.
I'm able to relate to my students because I am also a student. I am learning to speak Spanish, so I know what it's like being on the other side of the lesson and am able to connect with people effortlessly. Learning a new language is difficult, and consistent practice is very important (especially when you feel like giving up). I am here to help you every step of the way and will guide you through the difficult times. Together, we can build your conversational skills and get you one step closer to English fluency!
If you have any questions or would like to propose an alternate time to meet that is not currently listed, please contact me directly by sending a message.
I look forward to meeting you and seeing you in future classes!
