It’s time to learn English!

The goal of speaking English is wonderful and somewhat frustrating to achieve. But we already know that the rewards are worth it. After all, English is the language:

* with the most speakers in the world (almost 2 billion)

* with official status in 59 countries

* in which more than 50% of technical and science magazines are published

(English Statistics, 10/9/2020)

The door to all those cultures, to so many friendships (and job opportunities) is one language away, English.

With me as a teacher, you will be able to internalize the rudiments of English grammar and have simple conversations, and I will help you to communicate and increase your vocabulary quickly in the areas that are of most interest to you.

I’ll see you soon

My own experience abroad has led me to stress practical skills too.

I hope you enjoy my video. I promise to teach you with that enthusiasm and with a highly educated and clear accent.

Thank you for listening.

Teacher Profile: Phyllis

5.0 out of 5.0 stars

Good evening,

I want to share my favorite experience in teaching English.

I always wanted to be a teacher ever since I was a little girl. I admired teachers a lot and I chased my career by pursuing the course in college.

One of my favorite first experiences as a teacher was when I was introduced to a class of students that couldn’t speak or write English and I was told it was my duty to make them speak and write proper English with good grammar ASAP. Now the best part of it was that within a period of three months, the students could communicate very well in English though their grammar wasn’t so great. But I was overwhelmed that I shared my knowledge with them. After some time we practiced grammar and it was unbelievable! They did their best, and they were really determined, and I was able to motivate them more and more.

I love English because it’s the number one language in the world. Besides that, I love English because it makes me excited when I’m teaching, and sharing the knowledge. I don’t think I can switch my career to any other. Teaching is my best path and I do it with passion, and all my heart.

Phyllis is a native of Kenya and has worked in Panama with children, in some of the private nursery schools in Panama.

She is disciplined and organized, and always maintains good communication with parents regarding student progress. Of course, as part of school activities he has also participated in field trips, school concerts, camps and sporting events.

She has worked in business marketing, so she is a good candidate to teach “Business English”.

In addition, she has a Diploma in Journalism and Mass Communication.

Teacher Profile: Bob

5.0 out of 5.0 stars

Hi!  I’m Bob.  I have been teaching abroad for twelve years since 2008.  Having graduated from a major American  university with a BS degree in Social Studies Education and receiving a TESOL certificate, I went to teach American English in Vietnam, Thailand, Costa Rica, and now, finally, Panama. I have taught on every level; elementary though university, always highlighting conversational American English as a road to increased international communication and professional advancement.

The classes I conduct place emphasis on the strengthening of American English pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar, and comprehension. My classes utilize a one-on-one response/correction method that thoroughly engages the student in the use of American English to promote confidence and understanding. The student will be associated with idioms and common conversational language usage to be a better communicator in situations that require American English skills. This works to cause self-doubts to recede and English skills to vastly improve with continued practice.

I worked with children at Boston School International teaching history and geography, so I will be good for teaching your children these subjects as well as English as spoken by a native speaker.

Bob would also make an excellent teacher for After-School classes, or directed studies, especially in history and geography, as well as English. He used to work at an international private high school in Panama.

Teacher Profile: Vicky

5.0 out of 5.0 stars

Hi, I’m Vicky, an English (and Spanish) teacher. I have a degree in bilingual education and a master’s degree in higher education. I currently teach online classes to students from various countries around the world. It has been very enriching to teach people of different ages and to know the culture involved in the process of teaching and learning languages.

Over the course of several years, I have taught language classes at Spanish Panama Language School, and with it I have had the opportunity to focus on developing students’ production skills, especially conversational skills.

I rely on the communicative approach and the silent mode (The Silent Way).

In the methodology developed, the teacher encourages the student to speak as much as possible by having their classmates correct it and vice versa, while the teacher models and corrects the pronunciation of each student who participates in the space.

I am very excited to be able to extend my teaching program to you. We invite you to try it. Learning English or Spanish with us will open the doors to many cultures.

The silent mode (The Silent Way), on the other hand, is based on the premise that students contribute their inner knowledge and their capacity for critical thinking, as the objective to be set to achieve the main objective, which is of course to speak the language fluently.

Teacher Profile: Pilar

5.0 out of 5.0 stars

Hello, my name is Pilar. I’m 28 years old. I´m an English teacher. I love to teach in all the areas of English education. I have taught English in primary school, high school, and university levels. Since I graduated from high school in 2009 I have dedicated 10 years in specializing in different areas in bilingual education.

I studied my degree in English in university, a Specialization in middle school Methodology, Post-grade and Master’s degree in English and a Post-grade in higher education. I studied ESL at Lindenwood University and received various other certificates as well. English is my second language as I’m a native Spanish speaker. I worked as a conversation partner in Lindenwood, working with Europeans and Americans with their Spanish proficiency. It was a great experience for me.

My methodology´s simple, as I’m the kind of teacher that likes to teach vocabulary. When you know a wide vocabulary, it gets better when you need to express a simple idea. For me the most important in any language is understanding and being understood to lead to better communication. This applies to English and Spanish. My favorite strategy when I teach a specific topic it’s TPR (Total Physical Response) and in the classroom I play a lead role. I start by saying a phrase and demonstrating an action, then I say the command, and the students all do the action. I use a lot of regalia, flashcards, images, objects, videos, etc. It perfectly works with all levels and makes the class funnier.

Pilar has a postgraduate degree in Higher Teaching from the Universidad Iberoamericana de Panamá and a master’s degree in English, and a teacher in Middle and Diversified Teaching with an emphasis in English.

She studied in Montana, USA. Additionally, she has a BA in English with an emphasis in Teaching Methodology, 2015.

She taught in an After School program and provided many tutorials to children and youth in many schools in Panama.
