I love teaching.
I began teaching English as a second language in 2003 in Poland. I had the opportunity to work with countless business professionals and to work with genuine language, rather than artificial workbooks. I continued teaching in other countries including Spain, France, and the Czech Republic. I returned to the United States in 2010 and earned my BA in applied linguistics and I am currently completing my MA in TESOL.
I plan all of my own lessons and, unless students request, I never use prefabricated materials. Most coursebooks choose random vocabulary and artificial reasons to use grammar. My method is very straightforward - I listen to the student. Students willing to seek out private tutoring know not only why they want lessons, but also where they need the most help. My lessons are tailored to the individual, not the masses. My goal is to be as student centered as possible; by allowing my students the freedom to control their lessons, I have found that they are more engaged and learn only what they need.
Have you ever learned a language and spent several weeks of learning about fruits and vegetables? So have I, and that is the style of learning that discourages excitement and curiosity. Let us explore language together in a natural and relaxing environment.
I taught English as a second language in several private academies across Europe including Poland, Spain, and the Czech Republic. I have a BA in Applied Linguistics and I am working on an MA in TESOL.
I help tutor writing at the University of Maryland. Whether you need help with clarity or where to begin, I can help. I tutor both academic and personal writing.
