Hello! My name is Irene (eye-RI-ni).
I'm from California, USA. I've begun traveling long-term as an online worker. My TEFL certificate is from the University of Toronto. My university degree is in international relations.
I am an ESL teacher for adults, and I have taught ESL online since April 2019.
Topic-Based Conversation Practice: intense grammar error correction, new vocabulary and expressions in context, and pronunciation tips using every day, business English, or social topics (such as homelessness or climate change). I provide homework exercises on grammar and vocabulary for each topic.
Topic-Based English Writing allows you to develop your writing skills (vocabulary, written expressions, transitions, and structure) in a live writing lesson with different topics such as health, work, plans, and your city.
My Teaching Style:
-Serious but with bits of humor
-Strict and correct with your English
-Supportive of you
-Focused on connecting you with knowledge of English
-Full of love for English
What to expect:
-Gain lots of knowledge of English expressions and grammar mechanics
-Receive detailed, constant feedback
-Support and patience
My great love is history and historical fiction. I write reviews of historical novels for the Historical Novel Society, and I aim to begin writing my own historical fiction.
