I am a unique tutor as I not only hold a Master's degree in Education (M.Ed), I am also certified as a professional Life Coach. Coaches help clients plan road maps to reach goals. Together coach and client decide on action steps and the best way to make them happen. I do the same as a tutor. Being internationally TESOL/TEFL certified with 15 years of experience, I tutor non-native speakers in Conversation, Grammar, Writing (former university ESL/writing instructor), and preparation for the TOEFL exam. I also specialize in Accent Reduction and can design special lessons for specific needs. As a "global citizen," have traveled to more than 30 countries and have lived and studied outside of the US. My teaching experience is with individuals from all over the world and I understand the particular issues and challenges of specific ethnic/language populations. My passion has always been communicating with others in order to share knowledge, and to motivate and enhance lives. I love getting people excited and energized about learning. As a Life Coach I strive to empower all of my ESL students towards high achievement.

ESL/ESOL

I hold an International TESOL/TEFL Certificate (Teaching English As A Second/Foreign Language) from EBC Servicios Linguisticos. I am a native speaker and have 15 years of experience in the US and Mexico. I am proficient in all areas of ESL including conversation, grammar, reading, writing/composition, and accent reduction. I also custom-design lesson material depending on the specific needs of my students. My experience includes both private instruction and conducting classes for the following programs and institutes: Metropolitan State University, Simmons College LIFE Program, International Institute, YMCA, Jewish Vocational Services, Instituto Latino-Americano de Turismo, and SEMARNAT (Secretary of Environment and Natural Resources/Cabinet Level Department of Executive Branch, Mexico). My background includes working with learners in the following areas: academia, hospitality, aviation, banking, government, as well as university and secondary education.

Proofreading

I am an expert in all areas of the written word, including superb mastery of grammar. I am proficient in any aspect of proofreading: essays, web content, academic papers and assignments, as well as personal correspondence.

Great tutor — I was lucky to work with Victoria for the last month, I was preparing for my Toefl test and I needed to focus on the speaking part. Victoria is a clever and a gifted tutor, I learned so much from her notes and advise, she knew exactly what my weaknesses were, and she worked on improving my speaking skills and ability to impress my ideas in less time with less hesitation and errors. ...
