My name is Jelena Ignjatović. I graduated from the Faculty of Philology in Belgrade, the English Department. I also obtained an MA degree at the same Faculty, in the Language, Literature and Culture course. I started working in Lingva in 2018, and I have been teaching English on the Internet since 2017.
Being an English teacher, I consider many characteristics very important. Some of them are related to the teacher, the others are related to the pupils and working with them, and some are related to the teacher’s development. Firstly, regardless of the age, it is of great importance for all pupils to have entertaining and content-rich lessons. However, the teacher should take care that pupils use their gained knowledge actively and productively. That is exactly what I will advocate. Secondly, I also consider pupils’ motivation of utmost importance. It should be teachers’ main goal. Finally, even though I have graduated from the faculty, I am obliged to learn every day and constantly improve.
Speaking of Lingva, this school is a perfect place to work. It gives the opportunity to all teachers to work, to gain huge experience, and above all, the chance to improve. The organization itself is at a high level. All other members are extremely amicable, eager to cooperate, do not hesitate to help, while the other teachers are unselfish and willing to give advice. All the above mentioned characteristics make this school an ideal working place and a real paradise.
