K Maiella

Profession: College Professor/United States

Teaching Experience: I have taught at the college level for over 5 years but have also instructed at the elementary and middle school levels for over 6 years. I have worked with adult ELL and challenged learners.
I also work with ILETS students. Typically success in achieving your desired goal in ILETS ultimately relies on consistent and persistent effort an applying the skills you learn. I recommend the following schedule to provide ample preparation time. Approximately 4 months prior to testing. It is best to take a minimum of 60 minutes 7 days a week. Of course, there will be study time needed outside of class which relies on how much effort and time you can put into learning. Without putting sufficient time and effort into ILETS preparation, it will likely be difficult to achieve your desired goal.

Interests: I love computers and facilitating​ courses that empower learners. Some courses that I facilitated include college English, Computer courses, and Speech Communication classes. I am interested in technology and how their use are evolving in the business sectors. I enjoy discussing media and what is happening globally. I frequently watch the Discovery channel and even the History channel. I have a passion for learning and helping others achieve their potential.

Education: I have 4 degrees, 3 certifications, and I speak 2 languages.I graduated from the University of Arizona at Phoenix with a Master's degree in Education with an emphasis in Instructional Design, E-learning, and Computers. I am completing my doctorate in Educational Leadership and Technology (ET). I also have a Bachelor's in Management and Human Relations, and an Associate of Science with an emphasis in Media Communications. I hold certifications in the business, legal, and medical fields.

Maria Gallagher

Profession: ESL tutor

Teaching Experience: I have been tutoring English as a foreign language since April 2017. These are the jobs I have had in the past:
• Au pair
• Nursing Assistant
• Research Assistant
• Activities Coordinator

What kinds of lessons do I offer?

1. Conversation with corrections throughout or at the end of the lesson.
2. Vocabulary lessons. I will spend the first half of the lesson teaching you common vocabulary and phrases and then we will spend the second half of the lesson practicing the new vocabulary in a conversation. You can select and review a lesson before you call me.

(https://content.cambly.com/2016/05/24/conversation-topics/ )

3. Speaking practice for the IELTS exam.
4. Reading and writing for the IELTS exam. I ask students to use a laptop and download the screenshare application for these lessons. I set my writing students homework which we review in the following lesson.
5. Listening practice. I help students practice their listening by asking them the same question twice. The first time I will say the question naturally (but slowly!). The second time I also write the question and this is displayed on the screen. This technique works well for students who are good at reading or have the subtitles set to their native language.
6. Games (“Would you rather?” “Hangman” “Two truths and one lie” etc)
7. Storytime for children. Again, I ask students to use a laptop and download the screenshare application for these lessons.
8. Do you like music? You can ask me to play my guitar or ukulele!
9. Reading an article. You can bring an article to the lesson if you want. These are my favourite websites for articles:

https://www.newsinlevels.com/
http://uk.businessinsider.com/

You can download screenshare here: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/cambly-screen-sharing/cfljncbnkpbeifbhjnhfkmoekifihkoi?hl=en

When we start our lesson let me know what you would like to practice and we will get started.
