Hello! I'm Angel - I'm a a TEFL certified teacher (courtesy of TEFL Worldwide Prague) and taught in Prague, Czech
Republic from April 2012 through May 2013. During that time, I taught a variety of lessons to students of levels ranging from pre-intermediate to advanced. These lessons included both private and group lessons as well as general English
English, and lessons focusing on specific areas, such as reading
, and conversation. These lessons took place around Prague, so that included individuals' homes and at major corporations such as Mercedes-Benz, Komercní banka (KB), Ceská sporitelna, CEZ (Ceské Energetické Závody), and more!
My approach is the communicative method, which simply put, means that the student(s) speaks more than the teacher. Whether in an individual lesson or as a group, students will be more engaged and remember more of the lesson by actively speaking. In turn, a lot of error correction is provided, so you know when mistakes are being made and can correct them in the future. Our lessons will also be tailored to your specific needs and will be constantly adapted to focus on what you need and/or want to learn most. With that said, our lessons will focus a lot on what you can use in everyday life.
Quickly about myself - I am a very easy-going and patient person. I have a wide-ranging and growing set of interests, with traveling at the top of the list.
I am from New York and grew up bilingual, so I also speak Spanish
. I studied French
, though I could use a refresher because I haven't used it in so long. I can understand some basic Czech and even say a few basic words and phrases!
Please feel free to contact me at any time. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
