I am an experienced and enthusiastic English and English as a Second Language teacher. I am patient and the knowledge that I gain from students helps me teach to their preferred learning styles. I listen to students, pinpoint their areas of concern, and guide them to a better understanding of why they are having difficulties. I tutor them, give them strategies to help them gain confidence in their ability, and then help them work towards improving their grades.
I also place a great deal of importance on trying new strategies to help students succeed. I taught overseas in Australia and the United Kingdom during my early teaching career and have been teaching students in the United States for ten years. I specialize in helping students with their reading comprehension, writing skills, grammar, and verbal communication skills.
