Hello! My name is Angelica. How's it going? You may know that this question means, How are you? This is a question English speakers in America use EVERY DAY. When I began teaching English, I was surprised how many students didn’t know this simple but important question. This is one reason why students enrolled with Sprout have an advantage - a native English teacher!
English is my first language. I was born in Hawaii, USA and was raised in New York. I have been a teacher for a few years now, but I began teaching English last year after receiving my TESOL certification through the Canadian Institute of Applied Neuroscience. I learned a lot about the human brain, and how students learn languages best. Humor, conversation, and hand signs are just a few of the methods I use in my class to help your child learn English in the most effective way.
I love teaching English online! An online classroom is perfect for a little one's listening comprehension skills since they need to pay greater attention to what is said. Also, it means a student is happy in the comfort of their own home. This creates the perfect environment for learning!
I hope to meet you this semester in my class!
