Profile of teacher Jana
Build the fluency, accuracy, and complexity of your English with meaningful practice and authentic materials!
- I emphasize a balance of speaking, listening, writing, and reading; personal engagement and motivation; using authentic materials; and building rapport so that practice is effective but also fun! I developed my professional skills through a training program in English language teaching to adults, followed by a research-based masters in applied linguistics, specializing in language acquisition.
- what should you expect from my classes:
- My materials consider the student's interests and background and may include films, articles, and music. Activities integrate speaking, listening, writing, and reading practice with a focus on confident communication. The complexity of the language and exercises increase gradually to build a reliable base of knowledge. Evaluation is ongoing, with frequent quizzes to track progress.
