About me

  Hello! My name is Teacher Tonia. Welcome to my class. I have been teaching students to speak, read, write, and understand English for 13 years! I have met students from all around the globe. I wish the entire world could see the beautiful people, kind souls, and welcoming hearts that I have met throughout my time in the classroom. I feel extremely blessed that I can have a job which allows me to combine my passion for education and my love for the people and cultures of this world. I enjoy meeting new people, having deep conversations, swimming in the ocean, listening to music, drinking tea, being silly, joking, laughing, and having fun. My students always tell me that they enjoy my funny examples, the faces that I make, and the energy that I bring to my teaching. Most of my humor comes from doing 10 years of improvised comedy theater. I love to both watch and perform comedy. Laughter is a wonderful medicine.

For students who have zero English, a little English, broken English, or are looking to improve their basic English skills, I have a comprehensive course that will help you ask and answer questions, use past, present, and future tenses, and practice reading, writing, listening, and speaking.

Unlike other online courses, your next level is only 100 videos away.

Experiences & Certifications

I have a college degree in education in the U.S.A.

I have had the wonderful opportunity of teaching students in face-to-face classes. I have taught students from more than 70 different countries.

I have been able to effectively teach mixed-language groups without translation for the duration of my career.

I have 13 years of teaching experience with both adults and children.
