Case Studies: Teachers
Language Taught: English
Years of teaching experience: 13
I chose a career in teaching because I enjoy meeting people from different countries and, also, I wanted a job that allowed me to travel. Language Trainers offered me the opportunity to work one-to-one with students (online and face-to-face) and gives my students and me flexibility on how we want to schedule our lessons.
Hi, Erin! Can you tell us something about your teaching background? Why you teach, your qualifications and history, and what attracted you to Language Trainers
Hello! Yes, I teach English. I have CELTA certification in English as a Second Language and have worked as a teacher since 2008. I have taught classes online, and delivered face-to-face courses in company offices and language schools. I chose a career in teaching because I enjoy meeting people from different countries and, also, I wanted a job that allowed me to travel. Language Trainers offered me the opportunity to work one-to-one with students (online and face-to-face) and gives my students and me flexibility on how we want to schedule our lessons.
What is your favorite thing about working with Language Trainers, and can you think of any fond moments from your time working with us?
The communication is very good between the management and the teachers. And anytime my students and I play Taboo to review new vocabulary is fun and memorable.
What are your expectations in your classes? What should your students bring to each lesson, and what do you expect of yourself?
I enjoy working with students who enjoy talking about various subjects and are also comfortable working on grammar production, or grammar in spoken context. Meanwhile, my students can expect me to place lots of focus on speaking production, correct sentence structure and new vocabulary.
It sounds like you work hard to give your students a solid foundation of language knowledge. Are there any fun expressions you like to teach, as well?
Oh, yes. English is full of them. Just today, I discussed the expression 'hit the nail on the head' with a student, which means to find the exact right answer.
Would you recommend all students to study with Language Trainers?
Definitely! The one-to-one interaction with a teacher makes the experience very personal. Students can communicate directly to their teacher about what specific things they need help with.
