Professione: English teacher and teacher trainer
Esperienza di insegnamento: I've been teaching English as a second or foreign language since 2002. I started teaching in Venezuela, but have also taught in Europe (various countries), Sri Lanka and the United States. I've done teaching as well as teacher training and management of language programs. I have qualifications in teaching English, teaching online and teaching one-to-one classes as well as a lot of experience teaching General English, Exam Preparation and Business English. Nowadays I do a lot of teacher training, so I train teachers on the Cambridge CELTA course for most of the year, but in my free time I'm looking to do more teaching and tutoring.
Interessi: I love talking to new people about whatever their interests are. As for me, I'm very interested in travel, politics, international affairs, languages and culture. I'm also interested in technology, finance and food. (I almost said "healthy food", but if I'm honest there's a lot of tasty unhealthy food, too!) I like talking about sports, too... but I'm really more of a basketball fan than anything, so I can't talk equally well about all sports!
Istruzione: I'm originally from California so I went to school there until I graduated from high school. From there I moved to Washington, DC to do my bachelor's degree in International Affairs but I also had minors in Electronic Media, Spanish and Journalism. I got my Trinity TESOL (a BA-level certification) certificate in London, England and then my Cambridge DELTA (an MA-level qualification) in teaching English in Prague, Czech Republic.
Lingue parlate: inglese (Madrelingua), spagnolo (Fluente), italiano (Buono), ceco (Buono)
