Hello, welcome to Skyeng it is very nice to meet you. My name is Bronia Jacobs.
I am a Celta qualified Tefl teacher, with advanced certification in teaching English to young learners, teaching Business English, ILETS, and other English courses.
My passion for teaching started from a young age and flourished once I had started teaching English as a second language. Since then, my love for working with people grew to such an extent that I simply had to grasp every teaching opportunity.
I love to inspire, support, and mentor students. Thus getting the chance to discover and share some of the best parts of myself with them and in turn learning so much about their lives. In recent years I have realized that motivating a person to practice English can spill over positively into other aspects of their lives as well.
I have been working as an English teacher for five years and online for about three years. I have taught students in many different levels, ages, and nationalities. I absolutely love having students from so many different places. I get excited when I get a student from different countries, so I get to learn about their lives and cultures. I've always been drawn to language learning and teaching, language students are eager to learn, and have specific goals set.
When I teach, I make sure to take every students’ interest and abilities into perspective and focus on working on individual and multiple goals throughout the lessons. I love when students are relaxed and feel comfortable talking. I believe we learn best when we are not stressed and having fun.
My philosophy to teaching is to focus on a communicative approach, which means I focus on helping students take the language they already have and improve it to what they need.
Learning something new is never easy. Therefore having someone with you along the way to not only guide and assist but also support when times are hard is important.
In my spare time, I love reading, socializing with friends & family, hiking in the beautiful mountains, and cooking. I also enjoy discovering new parts of the city or country.
Language learning is like sport…you only get better with practice. I look forward to meeting you and being with you every step of the way.
