Profession: Online English Teacher at QKids
English Language Instruction, Teaching
I've been teaching English online at QKids for two years now. My 30 minute classes allow for a fun and exciting time for 4-12 year old students to learn useful phrases, grammar and sentence structure that brings them a step closer to becoming fluent!
Interests: As a multicultural individual who speaks English, French, and Arabic (Egyptian dialect), I know how difficult yet rewarding it is to learn a new language. I'm currently teaching myself Korean, as I hope to live in Korea someday!
I was born in Canada, and grew up in Switzerland, in which I attended an International school, which was predominantly English. Upon returning back to Canada I attended and graduated from high school and university.
During my time in Switzerland, I had the amazing opportunity to travel to different countries in Europe, which developed my interest in other cultures. Now that I'm more experienced, I would like to travel to places outside of Europe as well! I recently visited Korea and got to live in a very different culture and environment from what I was used to! It was a pleasant experience that I would love to go through again.
Apart from my delightful online English teaching job, my passions include drawing, playing video games, watching anime and animated movies, travelling, experiencing and learning about new and different cultures, listening to music, singing, playing all kinds of sports, and going on long walks. I love listening to people talk about their own passions as it allows me to expand my knowledge and learn more about the world and see different perspectives.
