Hello! My name is Emilia and I am a native English teacher from Canada. I have experience with both private and group classes and I work with all levels. I currently work independently and teach English, Russian and Portuguese. I am from Vancouver and I have experience working in schools and universities as a tutor and I've also worked online for some time. I currently live in Mexico City and I offer private lessons, group courses, exam preparation sessions, and editing services.
The classes can be focused on conversation/general English or exam preparation (TOEFL, IELTS, TOEIC).
Our classes can be online via zoom and I adapt my lessons to each student's individual needs. All the required material is provided digitally and the classes can focus on what the student would like to work on. For example, if you have to write a work email or report, our class can be focused on that.
My class schedules are quite flexible and you can choose how many classes you'd like to take per week (most students usually take 2-3).
English and Spanish are quite similar, so once you've got the basics, you can already begin to communicate in the language. Apart from this, English is an international language, so you can always find a way to immerse yourself, regardless of where you are. There are lots of clubs and virtual events to practice informally. Private English lessons can help you advance faster and focus on your weaknesses and objectives. I'd recommend 2-3 classes per week for best results. However, your studies shouldn't end when the class ends. I always give my students homework and other activities to practice between our classes.
Some people may consider it difficult to learn a language without living in a place where it's spoken. This could be the case of learning English in Mexico City. We're constantly surrounded by Spanish, so it's a bit difficult to immerse yourself in the target language. However, nothing is impossible and I believe that with enough dedication and hard work, anyone can become fluent in English without having to spend time living in an English-speaking country.
