Hello! My name is Jelena Ristic and I have been an ESL teacher for the past 17 years. I love teaching and helping people achieve their language goals. I have taught all ages from age 5 to 65 in many different contexts. I have taught in private schools, colleges and online both one on one and in classroom settings.
Courses I have taught range for high school English Literature to College Business Writing. I have taught all skills areas, speaking, listening, reading and writing extensively and exam preparation as well.
It is very important to me to make a genuine connection with my students so I can best learn what interests them the most and what their individual needs are so I can tailor lessons to them personally ensuring an interesting, engaging and very productive experience where the student feels they are constantly engaged and learning.
I look forward to meeting you in class soon!
