I am TESL/TEFL trained in ESL instruction. I received my TESL/TEFL certification through Maximo Nivel Executive Language Center in Miami. I am currently taking Graduate classes at Lesley University in Linguistics and First/Second language acquisition. I have 3+ years of full-time experience working with students from all around the world. I love meeting new people with different cultures. I learn just as much from you as you will from me. It is my privilege to help you to achieve your goals while learning English. A new language can open up many new wonderful experiences, and I am excited to bring more language into your world.

My methods of English instruction are simple. During my lessons, you will be immersed in the English language. I won't allow you to make the same mistakes over and over. I listen to you, I read your writing, and I give immediate feedback and you move forward. If you can't already tell, I love English and I am very passionate about it.

I will only speak English to you during my lessons. Hablo Espanol, pero no voy a usarlo en mis clases!

Please contact me with any questions. I will travel to you anywhere along the MBTA.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

English

As an ESL teacher, I am very confident in my abilities to teach English effectively. I have an ESL certification and over 3 years of constant English instruction. I am an effective and clear tutor.

ESL/ESOL

I received my TESL/TEFL certification through Maximo Nivel Executive Language Center in Miami. I have close to 4 years of ESL teaching experience in a classroom and have had many private clients in this time. My classroom experience includes 1 year as an ESL teacher in Cusco, Peru in 2011 and have worked for the past 2.5+ years in the Boston/Cambridge area.

Grammar

My intensive TEFL/TESL certification focused much of its time on grammar instruction and the structure of the English language.

Through my years of classroom and private instruction, I have only further mastered the grammatical structure of the English language.

I feel confident in my abilities to teach and guide students with their grammar needs and questions from beginner to advanced learners.

Proofreading

Proofreading is an area in which I am very comfortable helping clients. I will help you with your academic and professional writing. I can identify common mistakes and guide to you to form new habits. Let's work together!

TOEFL

I am a current TOEFL instructor in Downtown Boston. I have hundreds of hours of TOEFL teaching experience. I love teaching for this exam!

Vocabulary

I am effective in guiding my ESL students to increase their vocabulary during my lessons. We will work together to use variation in your speech.

Writing

I have taught many writing workshops as an ESL instructor. I am an expert proofreader of essays/resumes. I will help you form better habits as a writer. I am also able to teach essay writing skills (structures, citations, signal words, transitions etc.) Let's practice writing together!

Really helpful teacher!! — The two of us spent a lot time on speaking and writing. My teacher helped me on my pronunciation. For me it was really helpful. In our time we practiced many things like different grammar and vocabulary. He is a really quality teacher. I wish to recommend him for you. Thank you teacher! ...
