Hello! My name is Amanda. I am a native English speaker from the Midwest region of the United States. I have experience teaching English as a second language to young children, adolescents, and adults of all skill levels. I earned my Bachelor’s degree from Illinois State University in the study of French Language, Literature, and Culture. While earning this degree, I spent a semester studying abroad in France. This started my lifelong love of travel! I earned my Master’s degree from Northeastern Illinois University in the study of Linguistics in 2015. Last year, I lived in France where I was teaching English at two middle schools. During this time, I also worked as a private English tutor for children and adults. I received my TEFL certification in 2016. I can help you practice your English communication skills. We can have a fun conversation and you can practice your grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation. I’m knowledgeable in many areas of foreign language acquisition and Linguistics, and I can offer specific guidance in helping you on your journey to English fluency. I have a specific ability to notice errors in grammar, sentence structure, and pronunciation. If you’d like to have a more general conversation, we can talk about any topic you’d like! I love to travel – I have visited 44 countries so far, and I hope to visit 50 countries before I turn 30. I also love to read – I challenged myself to read over 100 books last year.
