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.

I'm from Yorkshire in the north of England, and I've taught English for 14 years. I have two different levels of Cambridge teaching qualifications, so I'm a capable and flexible teacher.
I focus mostly on helping students to learn or improve basic grammar; increase their fluency and vocabulary when their English is more advanced; and to prepare for IELTS or other exams. I also work to enhance students' pronunciation and business skills.
I now live in Mexico City, so I understand the challenges of speaking a different language, and can give special support to Spanish speakers.
I love music, nature, history, and learning about other cultures and countries. I'm very happy to speak about any topic, though.
I have taught students from all continents. In Britain, I helped people to develop the language tools they needed to live, work, and study in the UK. This included preparing them for ESOL qualifications and the IELTS exam. Since leaving Britain, I've also worked with people looking to improve their English for jobs in international companies, or for tourism purposes.
I am adaptive. So I want to know what your priorities are. Do you want more confidence when speaking? Do you need to improve your pronunciation, grammar, or vocabulary? Do you need to pass an exam, get a new job, or travel? Or are you learning for fun? Whatever your goal, I'll use all the tools I have to help you achieve it.
You as students should always be at the centre of your lessons. I don't believe in lecturing you. I believe in providing the bricks - of grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation - so that you can be the builders. I'll be there to guide you, but in the end it's your time and dedication that will help you to progress.
I'll seek to get regular feedback from you about how you feel with the classes and what you'd like to do more of or less of. The best type of teaching, in my opinion, is communicative and flexible.
Where are you in your English journey? The start? The middle? Near the end? What are your strengths and weaknesses? Let me know, and we can start moving towards your goals right away!
