About Heather

Welcome to my profile! My main subjects are English as a Foreign Language, Spanish, and English for native speakers.

I tutor English to speakers of other languages. I am TEFL Certified. The certification course included time in the classroom, working on lesson plans and theory, and time teaching. I have the most experience teaching speakers of Portuguese, Spanish, and Korean. I am also able to tutor native English Speakers in grammar and writing skills. I have an International Baccalaureate degree with Higher Level English, as well as experience tutoring in essay writing.

I am fluent in Spanish. I have taken classes throughout middle and high school, as well as many University courses. I have also studied and lived in Seville, Spain, and Granada, Nicaragua.

I have a TEFL Certification course. I took this course in-person at the International TEFL Academy Nicaragua. One of my assignments was a learner profile: I designed an assessment to gauge a student's level and interests, and then developed lessons specifically for him. My class also included teaching groups of different levels, a workshop in teaching pronunciation, and learning strategies for explaining grammar to different types of learners. I also have a year of experience in one-on-one instruction, with both children and adults.

I am an outstanding Spanish instructor because I have studied the language in multiple countries, and I am familiar with public school language courses in the United States. My focus on pronunciation, using cognates, and conversation will help anyone speak the language faster than a traditional "grammar and note-taking" class.

Please contact me and let me know how I can help you learn English or Spanish.
