I believe in you and your ability to improve your English skills. Together, we can do this!
Are you a native English speaker who wants to polish your reading or writing talent? Perhaps you’re a business professional who needs to perfect a presentation. Maybe you’re a struggling student preparing for an important exam. Is English your second language and you desire to become more fluent in conversation? No matter what your background or current level of proficiency, you can improve your English. I can help by supporting you through your academic challenges.
I guide students through on-line classes they’re currently registered in; assist them with homework or business assignments; help them study for tests or conduct practice exams; and mentor them through school or personal projects.
I tutor students in English, language arts, composition, and related disciplines. This includes facets of the craft like grammar, vocabulary, and spelling. I can help write an important essay or proofread one already written—-a college entrance piece, for example, or a university thesis. My services can boost reading comprehension, too. We can even design a PowerPoint presentation together!
I base my tutoring on three main principles: individualized attention, unlimited Q&A, and positive encouragement. I help my students overcome obstacles that inhibit their understanding of academic concepts.
I believe that individual attention within a safe and non-judgmental environment facilitates learning and fosters self-confidence. I open a space that promotes unlimited opportunities for asking questions, repeatedly if necessary; this keeps our focus on the student’s particular needs. I encourage students toward their optimal potential by supporting their unique approaches to learning and by suggesting techniques that they might not have tried before.
I use a combination of Demonstrator and Facilitator methods of teaching. That means I deliver content through modeling rather than lecturing. I interact with the student as an academic coach. I encourage students’ independent exploration of material relevant to the project objectives and help them make connections between their personal interests and their lesson requirements.
I am an inspired wordsmith who graduated cum laude having earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English with a concentration in professional/technical writing. My ESOL experience includes earning continuing education credits and helping students and professionals from countries as diverse as Africa, Peru, Slovakia, Ukraine, and the Czech Republic improve their listening, speaking, and writing skills. I am currently a graduate student working on a Master of Fine Arts Degree in Creative Writing with a concentration in nonfiction.
I maintain a flexible schedule and am most often able to accommodate a student’s desired appointment time. If weekday sessions won’t suit your agenda, we can discuss evening, weekend, or even holiday hours at the same low rate. If in-person lessons won’t work for us, online lessons are available!
