About Rebe

Welcome! My name is Rebecca Thering, and I’ve been teaching English since 2009.

I’m from Wisconsin, USA, and studied Spanish at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Rebe is my Spanish nickname.

I have lived and worked in Spain, South Korea, and now France.

I have experience teaching English to all ages—from children to adults.

I believe that anyone can learn English (and have fun doing it!), you just need strategies that fit your interests and needs. I love helping people learn languages by showing them these strategies and teaching the language in a clear, memorable way.

In addition to teaching English, I have over 10 years of experience learning languages myself. (Spanish, French, and a little bit of Korean).

I also work as a blog editor at FluentU, a website and app that helps you learn languages with real-world videos.

Here are some articles I’ve written for English learners on that site:

 

What does this mean for you?

  • Every day for work I get to read about the best tips and resources for learning a language effectively. I share this knowledge with you during our lessons!
  • I love editing and do it for my job. Thus, I edit any written assignments for you that I assign between lessons.
  • Since I’ve learned languages myself (and continue to learn every day!), I’ve been in your place. I have experienced the struggles, and can help you overcome them.
  • I believe a growth mindset is essential for learning languages. I teach this positive mindset through our lessons. You can use this to improve all areas of your life.
