I have been teaching and tutoring diverse students of all ages for eight years now. My strengths are helping struggling students succeed with their essay writing, reading efficiency and command of academic vocabulary.
I have taught everywhere from elementary schools to top university programs, and I love working with both adults and younger students of all ages. I have especially strong experience working with university and pre-university students, and English Language Learners.
I have received top ratings from my students in every class and session I have taught. I have a Master's degree in Education and Curriculum with a specialty in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). I also hold a bachelor's degree in intercultural communication, and am certified in Academic Student Coaching and Life Coaching.
Here are some things I can help with:
If you are struggling to understand academic essays, overwhelmed by your reading or writing homework,
or preparing for college exams and essays, I can help! My students consistently gain confidence and often raise their scores significantly after working with me for a short time.
If you are not motivated to do your work, don't enjoy writing, I can help you make it easier on yourself through fun and simple processes that work every time. If you are struggling to learn in your non-native language, I completely understand, and I know how to address this challenge.
If you are frustrated in your writing class, or with your IELTS or TOELF score I can definitely help you learn simple skills and techniques you need to bring your scores up. With just a few lessons students can learn to write a strong thesis statement, use clear transitions, and develop your 3 or 5 paragraph essay effectively. Persuasive, Argumentative, Cause and Effect essays; you will have more confidence in your ability to write any type of essay on your exam!
If you need more practice speaking English, improving your pronunciation, and spoken vocabulary, I can help!
When we work together, I promise to listen to you carefully. I will always adjust my teaching to work with your specific strengths and challenges,and work with your best learning style.
If English is not your first language, I am well prepared to help you succeed. As someone who has spent a longtime studying a foreign language and spent a semester in a foreign country studying intensely, I know what it is like to study in a non-native language. My specialty in graduate school was teaching English Language Learners. Through my experience and education, I have learned what works for English Language Learners, and anyone having challenges with their academic work.
I genuinely love working with students like you, and I look forward to working with you and making your learning process fun and rewarding!
