Cambridge Celta & Delta certified ESL trainer with over 5 years' experience as a freelancer, specialised in Online and Distance Learning. I use engaging, fun and creative materials with a communicative approach, focus on phonology, cross culture awareness and vocabulary expansion. Being able to communicate clearly in any context is my ultimate goal.
I have been a freelance ESL/EFL Trainer and Business Consultant for 5 years. My clients are private as well as corporate. Overall, I believe I have trained over 300 students. I have successfully trained students pass Trinity GESE levels as well as Trinity Sew exams with Distinctions, Cambridge FCE and Proficiency exams with Grade B, helped corporate learners hold and participate in meetings successfully, engage in small talk at corporate events, participate in conference calls. One of the most memorable feedbacks I have received so far was from a 11 year old who was seriously struggling with English. He said I helped him build the confidence he needed to not give up learning, and a 75 year old who said he is now able to make new friends in San Francisco.
I’ve had the pleasure to work with Anastasia for years, once a week. With her, I’ve found the necessary continuity to study the English language I was looking for. There are several aspects that I appreciate of our classes together.
First of all, variety. Whether it's a simple conversation, vocabulary, idioms, grammar, pronunciation, listening or writing exercises, I can say that there has never been a lesson equal to the other.
I’ve found myself talking about wine, music, literature, cinema, technology, or topics related to the world of business. All hints and topics that Anastasia has caught from me during our interactions, and that helped so much to keep the lessons engaging.
Another thing that I appreciate is her ability to take me out of my comfort zone. Not through tasks out of my reach, but just enough to push me a little beyond my capabilities.
But in the end what matters are the results. Of course, from day to day it’s difficult to measure improvements. Then strange things happen… It happens that during a conversation a word comes up to your mind unconsciously, a word that Anastasia had brought up a dozen lessons ago... It happens that you're listening to a song in English on the radio or a conversation in English on the street and you can suddenly recognize the words, almost without realizing it...
I am grateful to Ana and I recommend her to anyone who wants to approach – in both an accurate and engaging way – the learning of English as a second language.
