Hello! My name is Emily, I am an English teacher with more than 8 years of experience teaching in private secondary schools. I am from England and have lived in Colombia for many years, which has allowed me to have excellent Spanish. I have experience teaching people of all ages, from children to adults. However, I specialise in teaching intermediate-advanced students, in particular those who want to go from a B1 / B2 level to C1. I have a lot of experience preparing students to take the IELTS, FCE and PET exams, among others, and my students have obtained excellent results!
My experience has shown me that one of the biggest barriers to learning a new language is feeling embarrassed of making mistakes. For that reason, my classes focus on developing and promoting confidence, refining language skills, improving pronunciation, and expanding vocabulary in a safe and nurturing environment. I like to adapt my classes to the individual needs and likes of each student, and based on this I will create study plans that you will enjoy and make the most of - the key to success is enjoying your learning! I can also prepare you to take the IELTS exams, giving you special tips and suggestions to help you get the best possible results.
