About Anna

I have my University of Cambridge-issued CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults) certificate and taught English in Mexico, where I taught the listening, reading, and grammar portions of the pbt TOEFL, and also taught intermediate level students. I am a patient teacher and enjoy interacting with my students, helping them reach their goal of learning to communicate successfully in English. I am also currently minoring in TEFL at San Diego State University.

I believe the communicative, task-based approach to learning a language best facilitates growth in the four skills of reading, writing, listening, and speaking. While improvement in one skill will strengthen all of the others skills, integrated lessons which call for a student to practice all four skills will help the student to be able to communicate meaningfully in English.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

I have my CELTA certification (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults), and I taught English in Mexico with the Heslington English Language Program (HELP!).
