Not only do I have a Master's Degree in ESL, I have been teaching English as a Second Language at colleges, adult schools, vocational schools, private schools, and tutoring one to one and online for over 20 years.
Your confidence in the English language is my goal. That you feel at ease speaking is important to me. Because you are not a native, there are cultural expressions and vocabulary that you may not have learned in your ESL courses. I also observe and record your grammatical speech to help correct any verb tenses you are using incorrectly. You can confide in me with your concerns with the language and I will help you overcome them. I will be available to you at any time you have questions of which way to say something when you are feeling confused or stuck.
For the past 4 years I have been working with professionals from various countries helping them improve their skills in writing e-mails, business correspondence, pronunciation, communication, and advanced grammar including idioms and phrasal verbs. I want you to gain confidence to compete in the workplace and be understood as well as understand native speakers.
I have a warm, caring personality. I am flexible with scheduling. I will drive 10 miles to meet you at home, coffee shop, the library, or a bookstore. I provide beverages and snacks when tutoring in my home. I have many resource materials, books, tapes, videos, online sites available to help assist your English growth. I will research the specific information you need for your workplace needs.
I consider myself your friend, as well as your tutor, to help you learn and gain fluency in English.
