Highly qualified English tutor with a Master's in TEFL offering personalized online English lessons.

Methodology

My teaching methodology is very interactive, engaging and energetic. The best way to learn a language is by using it as much as possible and that's exactly what you can expect in our lessons. All lessons are personalized to meet your needs and goals. I utilize English language course books as well as authentic sources such as news articles, movie clips, interviews, music, etc.

Correcting students and offering constructive feedback is also an integral part of teaching a second language and you can expect both correction and feedback in every lesson. Also, I realize that most of my students have full-time jobs and responsibilities that can be dull or stressful. I strive to create a learning atmosphere that is both fun and engaging. I want students to look forward to English lessons as an escape from their routine and as an opportunity to challenge themselves in a dynamic, communicative way.

Background

I am a professional ESL teacher and private tutor. I have a BA and received my CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) certification six years ago and have been teaching abroad ever since. Last year I completed my Master's Degree in Teaching English as a Foreign/Second Language. I have taught all levels of English through International House in South Africa, Ukraine, Ecuador and Spain.

I am specialized in teaching both business English and test preparation courses (IELTS, FCE, CAE, TOEFL). I teach English across all four skills: speaking, listening, reading, writing. However, lessons are completely customized to fit your personal goals and interests.

Whether you're a beginner, intermediate, or advance English speaker, I have the knowledge, skills and experience to help you reach your language goals.

Perfect! I have been studying English online with Michelle for 2.5 years and she is the best language teacher I've ever had. Many people have commented on how much my English has improved since I started taking lessons with her. She is very knowledgeable and patient. I would recommend her to students of any level!

Michelle's response

Abror is a delightful student and is eager to improve his English skills. He pays attention in class and participates fully.

Perfect! It was a different kind of consultation. Nevertheless, it was great.

Michelle's response

She was very lovely and we had a great first lesson, but it was determined that we were not a good fit for each other.

Perfect! What to say about Michelle?

I only have good things to say about her. Michelle deals with classes in a very light way, fun and at the same time very theoretical and practical.
She is not just an English speaker, she has an extensive curriculum and she is extremely intelligent and she can teach anyone with any level of English.

I remember one day Michelle asked what is my favorite movie and I said: Titanic but I spoke like a Portuguese speaker and I didn't even realize that in English is different and she was trying to figure out the movie and then I said the right way and we laughed a lot after that.

I really recommend Michelle besides the fact that she is super didactic and intelligent she has incredible baggage and has a lot to offer and also I found very cool is that she was always available to answer my questions outside of class hours.

Best teacher ever.

O que falar sobre a Michelle?

Só tenho coisas boa para falar sobre ela. Michelle lida com as aulas de um jeito muito leve, divertido e ao mesmo tempo muito teórico e prático.
Ela não é apenas uma falante de inglês, ela tem um extenso currículo e é extremamente inteligente e pode ajudar qualquer pessoa com qualquer nível de inglês.

Eu lembro que um dia a Michelle perguntou qual é o meu filme preferido e eu falei: Titanic mas falei como uma falante de português e nem me toquei que inglês falava diferente e ela ficou com uma cara me perguntando que filme era esse e depois falei o jeito certo e a gente riu bastante depois.

Eu SUPER recomendo a Michelle, porque além de ser super didática e inteligente ela tem uma bagagem incrível e tem muito a oferecer e outra coisa que achei bem legal é que ela sempre estava disponível para tirar dúvidas fora do horário de aula.

A melhor professora!

Michelle's response

Paula is an excellent student! She takes her lessons seriously and always aim for perfection. Her strengths include attention to grammar and weaknesses include the perfect tenses. She is determined to improve her English and she puts lots of effort towards that goal!

Michelle is a hilarious teacher. She teaches English in a good live manner. I'm absolutely recommend her.

I met Michelle last year and asked for her help to improve my English. I am used to talk and write in English but it was never flawless and I always made the same mistakes. When I found out I would me moving to London soon, it became even more important to improve my English in a very short time. I can truly say that Michelle is a fantastic teacher. This because she not only corrected my mistakes but also explained me the logic behind it. Besides, she always asked me to repeat her when she corrected me which really helped me to remember the right words. When I now tend to make a mistake, I immediately think about what Michelle taught me. Lastly, Michelle is more than only a skilled teacher. I always looked forward to my lessons because she really knew how to engage me. She has a lot of positive energy, which really helped me to reach my goals!

Michelle is a wonderful teacher and helped me grow my vocabulary past common words. I also used to make many grammar errors, confuse tenses and now I feel myself more sure of how I speak in English. Her lessons are always fun and helpful. Completely recommended.

I got in touch with her after a recommendation from a friend that thought that would be perfect for me as I was stuck on my english learning.
She brought me from an OK english to a proficiency that allows me to be confident in business meetings and different professional situations where I was lacking something that could not learn with other methods.
Totally recommended.
