About Elisabeth

Hi! I have four years of teaching experience abroad. I taught children and adults of all ages in both Prague, Czech Republic and Taipei, Taiwan. Most of my experience is in teaching English (speaking, grammar, vocabulary, writing, listening, reading), and I also enjoy tutoring history, geography, and science. My lessons are fun and creative, and most importantly, tailored to each student's specific needs. I love teaching and tutoring because I learn so much in the process about my students, their culture, and the different perspectives they have on life, even as children!

In 2013 I earned my TEFL Certification in Prague, Czech Republic at The Language House Prague. After a month of 142 in-class hours and 20 teaching hours, I was prepared to begin teaching English. I am a confident and organized teacher. My teaching strengths are in English, grammar, vocabulary, idioms, reading, and writing.

I am excited to bring my teaching skills learned abroad back to my home country. Please contact me if you are looking for an intelligent, motivated, dedicated, and creative teacher for you or your child! We can discuss lesson times, location, and your English goals. Thank you for viewing my profile, I look forward to hearing from you.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have 3.5 years teaching experience for ESL: three years in Prague, Czech Republic and six months in Taipei, Taiwan. In Prague my lessons were all conversation based. All of my students saw dramatic improvement in their speaking and listening abilities, and most importantly in their confidence with the language. With conversation classes, I make sure that our discussions and topics are catered to your interest. I spend time researching and developing lesson plans that will give us both a lot to talk about during lessons.
