Hello!

My name is Lara and I am an accomplished English/ESL instructor and tutor with 4+ years of experience teaching and tutoring students in English. I have worked with students from diverse cultural backgrounds, encouraging and furthering their progress in development of English reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills. I have taught both in the United States and overseas (Japan) and have taught students of all ages (children to adults). I have experience teaching in four different college and English school environments, as well as privately tutoring students one-on-one.

I am available to tutor both non-native and native speakers of English in any aspect in which you seek improvement or proficiency. I am able to modify teaching methods to fit your particular needs and your current proficiency level (beginner, intermediate, advanced, etc.). I take great care in focusing on what my students want to improve most and I like to create a fun, comfortable learning environment. For example, I find that incorporating games into a lesson can often keep your interest in a stronger way, while also enabling you to firmly grasp the subject. However, I like to get to know my students and their learning styles so that I can adapt the most appropriate teaching method for them personally.

I would like to help you with your English needs and I have open availability to fit your schedule. I would be more than happy to help improve your English proficiency in what you'd like to work on most!

Thank you!
