Amila spent her early childhood in various parts of Europe and grew up in the USA. As a result she is fluent in Serbo-Croatian, German, and English. This makes it possible for her to relate to those who are learning a second or even a third language and incorporate this into her teaching. She has taught English to adults and German to elementary school children.
Amila currently holds a Bachelor's degree in International Business Studies and earned her TESOL certificate shortly after graduating. Before teaching literature with Sprout, Amila worked at a stock market trading firm, then taught English online to students all over the world. She has worked with Chinese, Russian, Spanish, French, German, and Korean students in the past several years.
Having spent most of her life in the USA, she has a neutral accent and clear pronunciation. Working online has allowed Amila the opportunity to live in more than ten countries in the world and she looks forward to visiting Asia in 2016. Having had the chance to experience different cultures, she likes to incorporate this into her teaching and make her classes unusual, creative, and fun. She enjoys teaching literature the most, engaging students in different topics and encouraging self-expression in young children. Amila hopes that her classes will help students not just gain confidence and become better English speakers, but achieve their personal goals as well.
