I am a teacher in an Academy of English. I teach kids and teenagers from age 8 to 15 , as well as I give private classes to adults. Currently I am finishing my degree at the University of Barcelona where I study Modern Languages and Literature specializing in English and Spanish languages and at the age of 20 I obtained an IB diploma studying in Denmark.
I studied for my CELTA at International house in conjunction with Cambridge University over 16 years ago. I've worked with children and adults, at language schools and academies and also doing home visits but now all of my classes are online and I specialize in adult education. I've taught bankers, doctors, archeologists, restorers, sales people and more, people from all walks of life. I thoroughly enjoy my job.
During 30 years I have got an extensive experience by working with kids as well as with teenagers and adults. One must say I prefer teenagers and adults. I have BA in philology, MA in pedagogy and a lot of courses attended in Latvia and abroad. Speaking, expressing the point of view and teaching grammar are my strongest points but as mentioned above I do everything necessary for the student.
I believe that culture provides one of the simplest and most pleasant entries into a new language. Teaching foreign languages to young adults and adults since 2015, I use an arts-and-culture-centered language acquisition approach and provide high-quality real-life materials for effective learning and fun.
I am an inspiring language coach and I help people to reach their goals, be it a language learning or personal performance.
I am passionate about learning mindset, personal development and everything that is connected with improvement of quality of life through exploration and reflection.
I have been teaching languages for more than 7 years now to my wonderful students with diverse interests from Latvia, Russia, Switzerland, Spain, Belarus, UK and Denmark.
Welcome to my sessions!
I've been teaching Dutch face to face and online for several years, working with students from all over the world.
I followed one year of extensive teacher training and followed a program of the Berlitz teaching method.
My specialization is intercultural communication, goal-oriented learning and interactive/creative lessons.
Experience teaching Latvian:
* Latvian Group lessons for Russian speakers in Riga;
* Private Latvian tutorials for Kids;
* Fundamental Latvian course for English speakers;
* Latvian Beginners language and culture guide for settling in Latvia.
* Fundamental course in Latvian Grammar.
Main attention - to the practical use and communication. However, the real improvement is only possible by grammatically correct speech and writing. These two approaches must be in balance. Galvenais uzsvars - uz valodas praktisko pielietojamību un dialogu. Tomēr patiesa izaugsme iespējama tikai ar gramatiski pareizu runas un rakstības pārvaldīšanu. Tādēļ svarīgas ir abas pieejas, tām jābūt līdzsvarā.
I studied Translation and Interpretation at the University of Cyril and Methodious in Skopje with German and English Language. In my third year of studies I did one semester in Innsbruck, Austria which was a wonderful experience.
Last year, during the summer period, I worked with kids aged from 3 to 11 years in Boltenhagen, Germany doing different kind of activities connected to non-formal education. On top of that now I work in a Language School in Skopje, North Macedonia teaching German.
Hello, I'm Lana, a 21-year-old student of Scandinavian studies, which means Scandinavian culture and Swedish language. I'm studying at the Faculty of Philology in Belgrade, Serbia. I see languages both as a profession and a hobby so besides teaching them I really like learning new ones. With me you can practice communication or start learning from basics. So far I have experience in teaching kids English, but I'm really looking forward to new experiences.
