I am a versatile well-qualified tutor with many years experience as a project manager
a technical writer, an ESL tutor, and a teacher of elementary students. My qualifications include:
o Certification as Teacher of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) from the Boston Language Institute
o Experience teaching and tutoring all levels of ESL, including discussion skills for advanced students
o Many years working as a Technical writer and Manager of technical publications projects, and technical writers and editors
o Experience as a hiring manager with insight to help clients improve resumes and cover letters
o BA in Education from Moray House College in Edinburgh, Scotland.
o Seven years as an elementary teacher in public schools in both the UK and the US, specializing in beginning reading skills and the social studies.
We will meet first to explore what you want to learn about and the skills you want to improve, as well as to consider a plan for your success. There will not be a charge for this introductory meeting.
Although I think students know best what pace and difficulty they are comfortable with, I do encourage students to maintain a pace that lets them see progress quickly. This usually includes homework. My goal is for my clients to gain confidence about their ability to converse well in English socially and professionally or, in the case of young students, to enjoy the benefits of learning new skills and knowledge.
