Hello there! My name is Anastasiya, Asya for short. I am a student at San Jose State University majoring in Linguistics with a TESOL (Teaching English as a Second Language) concentration, and I will graduate in Spring 2015. After graduation, I plan to study abroad in Japan for a year and be an English professor's assistant through the JET Program, and continue to graduate school after then, aiming for University of San Francisco.
Since mid 2013, I have had experience tutoring one-on-one with an ESL adult student through a San Jose City Library program called Partners in Reading, a non-profit organization aimed at exposing adult English learners to the English language in all areas - reading, writing, listening, and speaking - with particular focus on adult literacy. At SJSU, I have worked as an Assistant Student Coach, working with 6 freshman remedial English students towards guiding them in writing and proofreading their semester essays in conjunction with their remedial English professors, as well as helping them understand the importance of reading and successfully engaging readers of their work.
