About Lyna

I am certified to teach English as a foreign language to adults and children. I have taught students from Nepal, China, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, Myanmar, and Vietnam. My students range from elementary level (low English proficiency) to expert level (business English). I try to inject real-world situations into my lessons and focus on their practical needs. I help students navigate and interpret the American vocabulary, idioms, and cultural cues.

I have a natural curiosity for different cultures and have traveled to many countries: Japan, Vietnam, Thailand, China, Egypt, Peru, Italy, France, and many more. My travels have also instill in me a sense of empathy for those struggling to communicate in a foreign language. I find that teaching is best done with a high dose of patience and a healthy sense of humor. I try to create a safe environment where students are free to practice and learn without judgment.

I have a CELTA certification to teach English and have taught students in a classroom setting as well as one-on-one tutoring. I have teaching materials for all levels, with emphasis on pronunciation, practical vocabulary, and listening exercises.

Learning English can be fun and rewarding. I will help you with classroom exercises as well as practical speaking experience. I have a flexible schedule and can meet at your convenience. Contact me today and we can start improving your English right away.

a very attentive and encouraging tutor,

She teached me some idiomatic expressions that I didn't know and could be usefull in everyday life. Besides that, we have a general conversation and give me homework for my next class.
