Do you need extra help with reading, writing or vocabulary? Or are you looking for an ESL tutor to help improve your English speaking/writing skills or help you prepare for the TOEFL? I can help in all of these areas. I am a certified 7-12 English/Language Arts/Speech teacher and experienced ESL tutor. My professional experience includes working in the Troy School District at both the middle and high school levels. Subjects I have effectively taught include:

- Language Arts
- Writing Lab
- Literature and Composition/Short Story and Novel
- Personal Communication
- Vocabulary Improvement
- Nonfiction and Biography

In addition, I was a contracted private ESL tutor from 2005-2010. During this time I worked one-on-one with adult students from diverse countries and backgrounds and met their wide-ranging linguistic, cultural and scheduling needs.

I am currently two courses away from completing my Masters of Teaching at Wayne State University and I am working towards my ESL endorsement. Please contact me if you need assistance. I look forward to hearing from you!
