Learn more about my experience in ELT
Hello, I’m Marcela Harrisberger and I’m from São Paulo, Brazil. I’ve been an English teacher for 20 years, and I’m specialized in teaching adults. I have a BA in Social Communication, a post-graduation certificate in Educational Psychology and also in People Management. I hold a CELTA certificate and I’m a certified professional coach.
I worked for 15 years at a language school in Brazil, where for 10 years I was the director of studies in charge of the CPD of the pedagogical team. This was a great opportunity for me to develop my teacher training skills.
I moved to Germany in 2017 and now I teach at different branches of VHS (Volkshochschule) in Munich and online as well. I’m a teacher trainer and I’ve given workshops at MELTA (Munich English Language Teachers Association), at ELTAS (English Language Teachers Association Stuttgart) VHS and also at the Annual IATEFL International Conference and at the Annual IATEFL BESIG Conference (Business English Special Interest Group) in 2018 and 2019.
As an active member of the ELT community worldwide, I’ve written several articles for prestigious newsletters, some of which you can find by clicking here.
