Biography
Hey, everyone! My name is Edy and I’m an experienced, TEFL-certified English teacher. I love studying languages, hiking, and traveling. I’m from the US and currently live in Long Beach, California. I speak Spanish and am happy to give lessons in whichever language you prefer.
I’ve taught English in Mexico, Peru, and through Skype. I have experience in teaching all levels of proficiency from absolute beginners to advanced classes for students preparing to study in English-speaking universities. I have an AA degree in secondary English education, a BA in linguistic anthropology (focus on the structure of languages and the language learning process among different groups), and a 150-hour TEFL certification.
In our first class, we will talk about what you want to accomplish by taking my classes, so that I can make you a personalized lesson plan. Whether you just want basic conversation classes, help studying for a test, classes on advanced grammar topics, or anything else, I’ll be happy to help. About 60% of my class will focus on production (speaking or writing) so that you can reinforce what we learn in class. However, this will vary depending on your goals. Feel free to write me if you have any questions or doubts.
See you soon,
—Blake
¡Hola! Me llamo Edy y soy maestro de inglés certificado en la enseñanza de inglés como segundo idioma (TEFL). Me encantan estudiar idiomas, hacer caminatas y viajar. Soy estadounidense y vivo en Long Beach, California, cerca de Los Ángeles. Hablo español y les ofrezco lecciones en español.
He enseñado inglés en México, Perú y por Skype y actualmente enseño por el internet. Tengo experiencia en enseñar clases de todos niveles desde inglés básico hasta temas avanzados de la gramática, además de preparación para los exámenes TOEFL, GRE y SAT para los que quieren seguir estudios en los EEUU, Alemania o Gran Bretaña. Soy titulado en la enseñanza de inglés en la secundaria, antropología lingüística (el estudio de la estructura de idiomas y el proceso de aprendizaje) además de ser certificado en TEFL por un curso de 150 horas.
En la primera clase, hablaremos de sus metas y lo que quiere lograr para que yo le pueda hacer un plan personalizado. Si quiere clases de conversación básica, de temas avanzados, que le ayude preparar para un examen o lo que sea, estoy aquí para ayudarle. Más o menos 60% de la clase se trata de producción (hablar y escribir) para que refuerce lo que vemos en la clase. El otro 40% se trata de practicar leer y escuchar, temas gramaticales, vocabulario, etc. Sin embargo, ya que cada estudiante tiene un plan distinto, se puede variar el porcentaje.
Hasta pronto,
—Blake
