Hello! My name is Alex and I am from New York state, USA. I recently graduated with a degree in Literature and Russian Area studies and a minor degree in Education. I have a certification in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) and numerous hours of classroom teaching experience with learners from all ages and language backgrounds. I like to teach fun and interactive language classes, with lots of conversational exercises and games. I also believe bringing authentic examples of language into the classroom is imperative, so I utilize real English language texts and videos in the classroom frequently. I specialize in teaching courses that focus on academic English preparation for advanced English language learners, but I can and have taught students of all ability levels. I can’t wait to learn more about you and your culture while helping you learn about mine!
