About Tainia

I have a gift in terms of natural ability to connect with people. It's one of the reasons I like teaching so much. I feel that children, teens, and adults thrive off of my energy. I bring enthusiasm to everything I do. My energy is dedicated towards helping those who are not familiar or comfortable with the English language. My goal is to make your learning experience with me both challenging and fun. I find new and innovative ways to make students comfortable with not only speaking English, but with building their vocabulary and listening skills.

I am an English major at the University of Maryland University College. And while I specialize with ESL, I am very comfortable with building your skills to prepare you for TOEFL, IELTS, and SAT reading and writing or English literature in general. I am 150 hours TESL certified and have just returned to the U.S. (November 11, 2014) from teaching ESL for 14 months in China.

I manage my time effectively, and I am dedicated to helping students achieve their highest potential in learning the English language. I do require 24 hours notice for any cancellations, but I am flexible in regards to time and location.

I am looking forward to hearing from you, and an excited to help you grow your language learning abilities!
