Hello- My name is Jennifer and I’m from the US. I have lived overseas the past several years. Right now, I’m living in Kosovo. I have been a teacher most of my professional life. I’ve worked as a preschool teacher, a teacher supervisor and trainer and now a teacher of English. I am CELTA and TEFL certified. I’ve taught students in Taiwan, Yemen, Jordan and the Kingdom of Tonga at levels from beginner to advanced.
As a teacher, I like to focus on the needs and interests of the student. To me, it’s important to focus on speaking, listening and learning new vocabulary to help you improve your communication skills – and add grammar and pronunciation practice as necessary. Any lesson I teach is targeted to the goals of the student, so if you want to practice reading or writing, we can work on that together too. I also like to give students strategies and ideas and identify language-learning resources, so they can practice English outside of class.
Finally, I think learning and progress is strongly connected to having a good relationship with your teacher, so I try my best to build a strong connection with my students so they feel comfortable and confident to learn and improve their skills.
If you want a positive, encouraging, well-prepared teacher with a lot of energy who will help you improve your English and build your confidence, I am the teacher for you!
