As an international educator with over ten years of experience, I am committed to providing educational services that are goal-oriented and student-centered. If you are interested in improving your English, polishing your presentation skills, or gaining a cross-cultural perspective, I am the tutor for you.

I have educational background in Communication, French, Business Administration, and Instructional Design and Technology. I spent one semester abroad studying in France as a college student and lived in China for more than five years working as an English and early childhood development teacher. I have experience teaching across a wide range of learners from 18 months to retirees. Having been an ESL teacher, business consultant, and higher education administrator, let my years of working overseas and in education benefit you.

Business

I received my MBA in 2010. I worked in a real estate development business in China, and have been in leadership/management position in higher education for 6 years.

English

As a native English speaker and an ESL teacher in China for more than five years, I have built upon my communication and broadcasting education. I further studied at the masters level in business administration and instructional design and technology. These experiences have come together to provide excellent English language skills across a variety of platforms including reading, writing, public speaking, and cross-cultural communication.

ESL/ESOL

I worked as an ESL teacher in China for more than five years building upon my communication and broadcasting education. While in China, I also tutored students for TOEFL and IELTS exam preparation. After returning from China, I earned an MBA, and a Master's of Science in Instructional Design and Technology. In one of my previous positions, I assisted in the oversight of an office responsible for English language credential verification for international students as well as an intensive English program. I have worked in the education and business field for more than ten years and have excellent English skills.

In addition, I have worked in the education and business fields writing, editing, and proofreading multiple document formats, websites, and marketing materials for distribution around the world.

Furthermore, I have excellent reading, writing, and editing skills as evidenced by earning two advanced degrees, one in business administration and one in instructional design and technology.

I pay attention to details and always base my conclusions on research backing.

Finally, I have more than ten years of teaching and public speaking experience in the business and education fields.

Reading

As a communication major, I learned to focus my attention to the details of text. I pay attention to the subtle nuances of language. In addition, I am able to verbally convey that information to assist others in acquiring those same skills. I worked for more than five years in China as an ESL teacher and have continued my education career in the United States for the last six years.

TOEFL

Here is my experience related to working with TOEFL: I was the Director of International student and scholar services for a university in Kansas. During that time I assisted international students with TOEFL requirements for university admission as well as assisted in the oversight of our intensive English program.
