About Caroline

I teach English as a foreign language with the same passion and dedication I bring to my dance classes: choosing the content of each class based on the student's needs, and adapting the methodology to include things they will really enjoy and connect with. As a professional dancer I have experience teaching all ages (from 3 to 83!) and levels, and I have learned a lot about the ways people learn. 

A native English speaker (UK), I learned Spanish 'from scratch' in Argentina, and the experience taught me so much about how we learn languages - it can be challenging, but it creates so many opportunities and teaches us a lot about ourselves! 

I have been teaching online for over a year now and have taken specialist courses in Business English and IELTS preparation. The online classroom can be creative and dynamic, and will let us connect wherever we are!

Specialities

Online pedagogy: As well as recognising and adapting to the way individual students learn, I am very flexible and creative with class content and methodology in the online classroom.

Active, dynamic learning environments: As a dancer I have extensive experience working with memory, creativity and improvisation and can bring all this to bear on classes so we're not only working with abstract or mental processes! Everyone learns differently and the process of commiting language to memory doesn't have to be through endless repetition.

Extensive teacher training: Including child development, adult learners, lesson planning, course structure, short- and long-term objectives and goal setting.
