Hi! Thank you for viewing my profile!
My name is Eleanor. I am from Singapore, but have lived, studied/worked in the US, UK and Spain. English is my first language. I also speak and understand some Mandarin, Cantonese and a little Spanish. I enjoy living well and learning more about the world, food and nature.
My approach and experience:
I teach from my own experience, using knowledge I have from different parts of my life. I have taught children in the past two years and I enjoy working with them on Reading, Speaking, Listening, Writing, as well as vocabulary and grammar. I have also worked with adults in general/basic English. This is fun because we talk about different things you are interested in, or things that are helpful to your life and work.
Learning a new language, like Spanish for me, can be quite... hard, tiring and scary. Having relaxing conversations will allow you to practise your use of the language, while I look out for key learning points that will make you a better English speaker. Patience, practice and exposure is what I desire from a teacher and what I will offer you. However, first, I will need to get to know you a little more!
I graduated with a degree in International Business, a Tourism Diploma and am enthusiastic to meet you. To help you better, I have completed my training to be a TESOL certified teacher.
Let me know why you want to learn English and how I can help by reaching out to me here.
Almost everyone who lives in Singapore will end up learning a little bit of English because it is everywhere. However, what kind of English you end up learning, depends on what you are exposed to most frequently.
It really depends on your personality and learning goals. For example: Why are you learning English? How quickly do you want to learn English? What kind of learner are you? My favourite way of learning a language... would be to find something you can be consistent with and use it. I always remember that language is a living thing and it's basically used for communication.
