Hello and Welcome to my profile! I am a professional English teacher who greatly enjoys teaching English and meeting people from all over the world. I can help you improve your English and achieve your goals.
I have ten years teaching and tutoring experience and haven an Masters from UC Davis in Linguistics. I have taught advanced ESL courses and academic writing classes at the University of California. I have also taught intensive English courses in the Middle East and for international corporations. I also developed business English classes with the U.S. State Department in Africa.
When I begin a new tutorial, it is important for me to take a few moments get to know my student and how I can help them. I like students to talk about themselves and their interests in and out of school. If students want to only talk about academics that is OK too. It is important for me to listen and learn about students so I can understand their background and help them effectively.
After learning about their interests, I ask the students to describe the courses they are taking and how they are doing in them. Once I understand where I can be of assistance, we start working together. The more I work together with a student, the more I learn about their strengths and learning styles that help me improve future sessions and recommend helpful resources.
The power of collaborative learning and team work are big part of why learning can be so much fun.
I look forward to hearing from you and working with you!
