I am a professional teacher and tutor who is certified in teaching English as a second language (ESL). In addition to my teaching background, I also have career experience as a writer and editor in the publishing field.

I understand the unique learning needs of different students and I'm an expert at determining the primary learning style of each student and designing lesson plans to fit each student's needs. All of my students have improved significantly through my one-on-one tutoring.

I tutor students in grades K-6 in all classroom subjects. I also work with children and adult students from various native language backgrounds to improve their English speaking, reading, writing, and listening skills.

I have a flexible schedule and am always interested in working with new students.

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.

I tutor students aged child to adult in English speaking, writing, listening and reading skills.

I'm familiar with the TOEFL test and can tutor students to prepare for all four sections of the test--reading, writing, speaking and listening.
