عني

Hello/hola/bonjour!

My name is Martha and I would love to help you improve your English. I am a native English speaker, originally from Baltimore, but living in Guatemala. I love learning new languages and sharing English conversations with others.

I have a Master's from Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies in International Relations and Economics. I am TESOL-certified and have taught English around the world in France, South Korea, Czech Republic, and Guatemala, as well as coached many friends in English conversation and grammar. I speak Spanish and French, and have studied Korean and Maya Tz'utujil, so I know what makes a fun and engaging language learning experience.

Please join me -- with a little practice, you will become a more comfortable and fluent English speaker. Can't wait to work with you!

Me llamo Martha y me encantaría ayudarle a mejorar su inglés. Inglés es mi lengua materna y soy originaria de Baltimore, EE.UU, pero vivo en Guatemala. Me encanta aprender nuevos idiomas y disfruto platicar en inglés con lxs que están aprendiendo.

Tengo una maestría en relaciones internacionales y economía de Johns Hopkins. Gozo del certificado de TESOL y he enseñado inglés por muchos lados del mundo -- en Francia, Corea del Sur, República Checa y Guatemala -- y he apoyado a muchos amigos en conversación y gramática inglés. Hablo español y francés y he estudiado coreano y maya tz'utujil, entonces sé lo que hace una clase de idiomas divertida y atractiva.

Súmese a mi clase -- con un poco de práctica, va a volverse un angloparlante más cómodo y fluido. ¡Qué ganas de trabajar juntos!
