I am an enthusiastic and patient teacher. I enjoy being prepared to instruct my students in an individualized way. My specialties include helping ESL and international students with their writing, reading, and speaking. I have access to many appropriate resources; my students do not have to provide materials if they are not currently enrolled in classes. I am most effective at working with adults, but I also have experiences working with children ages 12 and up.
As a current graduate student, I am working towards my M.S. in Teaching English as a Foreign Language at Southern New Hampshire University. In addition to being the Graduate Assistant for the Institute for Language Education, I am also the ESL Writing Tutor for the Learning Center at SNHU. I proactively provide writing tutoring and instruction for individual students and groups.
At an area learning center for adults, I am a ESOL Bridges instructor. The course is designed to help students prepare for the academic intensity of GED and college-level courses. While teaching reading and vocabulary-building skills, I also teach American culture, history, politics, and government, as well as pre-Ged math and science.
I graduated from Bucknell University with a B.A. in Japanese and a minor in linguistics. I have worked as a teaching assistant and private tutor for the last 4 years.
