Mattie Hamilton

United States
Where are you from?

I grew up in rural Texas, and I spent 4 years in Chicago before coming here to Mexico.

How long have you been in Mexico?

I have lived in Mexico since August 2019.

How long have you been teaching English?

I have been teaching since 2017 and teaching English since 2019.

Have you taught anywhere else other than UE?

I previously taught an internship program in Chicago for university students interested in pursuing careers in the music industry.

What do you like about teaching at UE?

I love that no class has the same mix of students. Our students come from such a wide variety of backgrounds and ages, and with their differences come endless possibilities for class discussion. Students have the opportunity to learn not only about the lives of English speakers, but about others’ lives within their own cultures as well.

What advice can you offer to language learners?

Live as much of your life in your target language as possible! Watch movies, listen to music and join online communities where people speak the language you want to learn. It’s easier to learn while doing something you enjoy.
