Ayelet Zadok

Our partner in teaching kids and teenagers is the founder and leading teacher at English-Online

Ayelet, our partner in general-spoken English courses for kids and teenagers has been an English teacher and lecturer for the past 15 years. She graduated with honors with a degree in literature, linguistics and teaching English – a degree which was always her dream.

In high school Ayelet learned the language but felt she was not actually taught to communicate in English. Her dream was to speak English fluently. So, she decided to immerse herself in English – through friends, reading, watching English content, participating in events and studying with good teachers.

Ayelet fulfilled her dream and reached native English level! In her teaching of English, she focuses on understanding the difficulties faced by English-learners and fine-tunes her teaching methods accordingly. This is done by continuously learning and developing and by finding new solutions to students’ individual challenges. For the past 15 years, Ayelet has been teaching young people, students and adults and has already completed thousands of hours.

The method she teaches simulates an English-speaking environment. Learning is conducted by implementing a curriculum that is developed and tailored according to the goals of each student. Her method also includes guided and self-practice. Most importantly – she is always there in TriEnglish to motivate, encourage and develop perseverance among her students.

Ayelet addresses all types of difficulties that her students raise and develops online courses that address these needs. Thus, she leads her students, hand in hand, to success.
