      Krista Jarvinen

      Teacher

      My name is Krista Järvinen and I’m a certified English and Swedish subject teacher. I graduated with my Master’s degree in English language and literature (philology) in spring 2020 from the University of Tampere, Finland. Pedagogical studies are included in my diploma. I have one year’s experience teaching 15-18-year-old students. I have been observed to have a warm presence and natural flow of communication with students. I also studied at Eötvös Loránd Tudományegyetem (ELTE), Budapest, as an exchange student in 2018-2019. I loved living in Budapest that year and so I came back once I had finished my studies back in Finland.

      I am half Swedish and half Finnish. I was born in Malmö, Sweden, in 1995 but moved to Tampere, Finland, when I was five in 2000. This was when I became bilingual. English on the other hand, I started learning in third grade in school and became passionate about it instantly. Already as a teenager I had dreams of becoming an English teacher. Along the course of my life I have studied eight languages (e.g. French, Spanish, Japanese), but English has always been at the centre of my heart, my truth. I wish to spread the incredible potential and creativity of this beautiful language that I love so much. At BGC Afterschool I will be teaching reading and writing, role play, global skills, project, as well as exam practice.

      As a person I am calm and collected, kind, honest, and reliable. In my free time I take great interest in perfumes, fashion, cooking, photography, creative writing, films, and music.

      All the best wishes,

      Krista
