Hi, I'm Mary, from Manchester, in the UK. I've been teaching English since 2012 and am CELTA certified, to teach English as a foreign language. I have taught every level of English, from basic to advanced level, and have taught students from all over the world, including Europe, Asia, the Middle East and South America. I returned to live in Manchester a few months ago after living in Colombia for four years and have lived in Spain in the past. My classes are very interactive, and welcoming. I am a very patient teacher as well. I can help you to improve your grammar, pronunciation and specific language skills: speaking, reading, writing and listening. I am very flexible in my teaching style, and adapt classes to meet the needs of students. I understand the challenges involved in learning a foreign language. I have been learning Spanish for a number of years, but know that with time, patience and a good teacher, it's possible to reach the level you are aiming for! My hobbies include playing the piano, learning Spanish and salsa dancing. I hope to hear from you soon! *** Sorry, but I don't teach children.***
¡Hola a todos! Soy Mary de Manchester, Reino Unido. Llevo mas de 5 años enseñando inglés como lengua extranjera, y soy profesora certificada (CELTA). Tengo mucha experiencia dictando clases a los hispanohablantes y entiendo los problemas comunes en que se fallan con el inglés, por ejemplo la pronunciación. Soy muy paciente, y mis clases son muy interactivas. La enfasis en mis clases es que los estudiantes hablan en inglés todo lo posible inmediatamente y que sigan mejorando. íSaludos!
