TEFL Certified ESL Instructor with BA in English Literature in Boston gives student-focused engaging lessons.

Methodology

My students are adult professionals who want to improve their spoken and written English. My lessons focus on the specific objectives of each student. As a result, they are interesting and my students become fully engaged in the lesson. My students gain the confidence that they seek with their English.

Group rates considered.

I have 60 hour Bridge TEFL Certificate. My grade for the TEFL course was an A.

My undergraduate degree in English Literature is from Suffolk University in Boston.

Background

Hello! I am an American native-speaker who currently lives in Boston. My father was British and I spent a quarter-year of high-School in the UK. I've been giving ESL lessons since April 2016 and have taught from 1 - 30 students at a time. I also teach Hospitality and Business to adult international students in a classroom setting.

The focus of my lessons is always the student's objectives. First, we chat and I find out what the student needs. Then I deliver a lesson that focuses on those objectives. Be it accent reduction, improved vocabulary or sentence construction, I find a way for my students to grow in their area of need. This personal approach is enjoyable and effective for my students.

Superprofs is an attractive option for me because I'll be able to work with my students over time and help them grow and develop. Other online platforms don't offer that continuity with students. Continuity is a key element of success!

Let me know know I can help you succeed with English.

Thanks, Lynda

I've worked with Lynda at CSI for since she started here. Lynda has always been a responsible and thorough teacher who was passionate about teaching her students and knowledgeable about the curriculum. I've managed her teaching program and now teach as a fellow adjunct instructor and in both situations she has been shown to be exemplary in the classroom. I fully recommend her for this teaching opportunity.
