Hello there I’m Martina, a certified English teacher with a strong enthusiasm towards art and adventure. Also reading for a Masters in Art, I can relate to the needs of students and enjoy keeping lessons light and fun. I am passionate about learning, I know how important it is to engage and explore – inside and outside of the classroom!
What I most like about teaching is…
…meeting new people and getting to know them while helping them out… and seeing their expressions when they learn something new.
My best lesson
…is when students reach the point where they can work as a team to create something together while practising their English.
My favourite activities
Engaging the students’ imagination, which can include anything from planning their ideal city to creating innovative inventions!
The best thing about teaching English is…
…noticing that the more students learn, the more enthusiastically they start to express themselves and talk with each other.
My teaching philosophy
Creating a challenge that the students are ready to take up and seeing them improve as they apply what they have learnt. The journey to that new language point you aim to learn should be the most exciting part.
