I will be your personal English coach. In our sessions, I will assess what you need to learn as well as your learning style and personal preferences and I will design your program carefully with that information in mind.

What you'll learn

During our first sessions I will mostly focus on getting to know you and making you comfortable in class through relaxed but guided conversation and easy questions or exercises. Then, I will bring materials specifically chosen for you and even tailor-made for you. I will encourage you to use your previous knowledge of English in conversation bringing up topics that will engage your interest and make you comfortable. I will constantly get your feedback to make sure you enjoy your classes and you stay motivated to learn, which is our top priority. We will build on your fluency together and I will keep giving you feedback and corrections as needed, while introducing new challenges. I will help you build your vocabulary and push you to use it in conversation as well as in short and quick exercises, sometimes gently leading you into an engaging conversation, sometimes demanding full focus on a specific grammar point, pronunciation exercise, or anything I might identify as needing extra work. We will work with materials I bring as well as materials and topics you may bring, as needed. We will work on your speaking skills, improve your fluency and polish your grammar as well as your pronunciation, all the while keeping careful watch on your learning needs and adapting your program along the process. I will provide plenty of materials for you to work on your own between classes, if you so wish, but homework will not be mandatory as a rule. We can work together on your work presentations, e-mails and meeting preparations, or talk about any issues of your interests – or just about anything that comes to mind, while I gather information on the following points so we can work on them together:Vocabulary;Pronunciation; Grammar explanations, examples and exercises; Idiomatic Expressions;Written English (if necessary);Listening comprehension.

Your Teacher

Jackie G
I am an English-Spanish translator and teacher currently living in Spain. I first started teaching at NIU, Illinois, USA, as a Teaching Assistant, and once I graduated from my Master's degree I started to work as a Court interpreter and translator. After a few years I came to Spain, where I am teaching English and Spanish, while I still work as a translator (specialized in Psychology). Being a translator helps me better understand the process of learning a foreign language as an adult and develop my teaching and language coaching techniques. I enjoy researching and trying different techniques to create my classes and creating my own materials. On-line Teacher of English as a Second Language.
