I've been an English language tutor both in St. Louis and China, and I love it. I have taught English to three year olds and students older than myself at every proficiency level.
I have an M.A. in teaching English as a Second Language from SIUE, and I currently teach ESL at two universities here in St. Louis. I've taught TOEFL and IELTS preparation as well as college-credit English composition.
I try to find the most effective way to teach each individual student. I always say, "the more you like it, the more you will learn"--so we both have a lot of fun!
I never bill for a lesson unless the student or parent is completely satisfied. I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy, however I offer makeup classes. I'm flexible about offering lessons at my own home, yours, or another location such as the library.
My goal is your success, and I have a proven track record on two continents!
