Pitt Linguistic student offering ESL classes in Pittsburgh (Spanish and Russian knowledge)

Methodology

I base my lessons on teaching my students the essentials of English, so that they can survive everyday life here in Pittsburgh. I like incorporating American and Pittsburgh slang into lessons, and working with my students so that they can adapt to life in Pittsburgh.

Background

I am in my fourth year at the University of Pittsburgh majoring in Linguistics and Spanish and learning Russian. I've taught ESL at an English Academy in Buenos Aires, Argentina and at the English Language Institute here at Pitt! I've taught students age 6-56 and I've worked one on one, and instructed classes of up to 10 students.
