Hello! My Name is Alana.
I’m from the beautiful state of Oregon in the United States, but I’m currently in Asia! In my free time I enjoy going Ice skating, hiking, swimming, and reading books. I’ve lived internationally in both Chile and Thailand, and have always been passionate about traveling, and learning about different cultures.
I’ve been learning Mandarin Chinese for around 3 years, and I feel it’s helped me to become a much more effective teacher, because I know what works!
I have my Bachelor degree in Education, and I minored in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.) I have over 10 years of teaching experience, and have been teaching online for about 2 years.
I have so much fun working with the students in Sprout, and love to get to know them and see them progress! I feel teaching online is such a great way to help my students advance their English skills and help them build a better future.
I look forward to meeting you!
