Terese is a great tutor. She is very knowledgeable, professional, patient, and helpful. She is always great prepared and very well organized. I absolutely love working with her, and highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a good English tutor.
well here is my story, I have been suffering form TOEFL for almost a year. I am a foreign pharmacist and I need to pass each section in the TOEFL exam separately to fulfill my requirements. I passed speaking which was the hardest part at least for foreigners from the second time. However, my writing score was 21 or 22 for four times consistently. I decided to search for a tutor to help me out with this section, and I found Terese. She is very kind, helpful, knowledgeable and reliable . She gave me the right materials and helped me focus on my mistakes which I used to do in the previous trials. she gave me around ten tutoring sessions (one to one ) and in each session she tried to correct my essays. after these ten sessions, I took TOEFL and I passed writing finally. Unfortunately, the reading section in this time pull my score down. I took 19, which was supposed to be 21.
Nevertheless, I feel so happy because once I took sessions with Terese in writing, I passed it. And now I need to work harder to pass sections all at once . Finally I do recommend Terese for every one who suffers from the TOEFL for a while. She will offer you her help immediately and help you understand your consistent mistakes easily.
Thank you Terse!
English is my second language. I was always looking for someone who could help me improve my writing, pronunciation, and grammar. Terese surpassed all my expectations. She is an incredible teacher with the highest skills. After reviewing my English abilities, she tailored lessons to my needs. She is very accommodating and her lessons are always interesting. Terese is well prepared and very patient. Most importantly, she motivates me and makes me work. After trying a few other teachers, I'm very happy with Terese and would recommend her to anyone.
Terese is a great teacher, very patient and able to figure out what you need to improve with your English. Usually my lessons are based on listening and speaking and grammar, very useful for English daily. Hours are flexible. I suggest her to everyone.
My wife is non-native speaker, so she's wanted to learn English, but both of us (her and I) though it would be too hard to learn English because she is a beginner. However, when I explained this problem to Terese she made an amazing plan; a few weeks later my wife's English has been improving dramatically!! She worked hard and did her job faithfully. What I can say that she is unbelievable teacher.
Terese is a dynamic teacher. She gives you energy and confidence that you will succeed.
She figured out what is best for me and made a personal program, which could help me faster improve my English skills. Every time I didn't understand something or said something incorrect, I wasn't confused, because she always explained and tried to present information in a simple way.
She provided me with flexible schedule and was very punctual. I always was in a good mood after our lessons.
Terese is a very active person who will do everything to help you improve your English skills. She was on time and so easy to get to.
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 usually begin a lesson with a reading assignment. From the reading, we review vocabulary, idioms, grammar points and comprehension. For pronunciation practice, I have the student read out loud. The student is encouraged to discuss the story, offer opinions, and support their ideas through examples. From one reading assignment, the student improves in many different areas of English.
I have lived overseas for the last 20 years, in nine countries on four continents. I understand culture shock, and the need to learn another language as quickly as possible. I am certified to teach ESOL and have been awarded Cambridge University's CELTA certification as well. My lessons are tailored to the student's needs and adjusted to improve fluency at a pace set by the student. I tutor absolute beginners through to university students preparing for graduate school exams. I can help you improve your ability to communicate, express yourself, and understand others.
You can learn grammar without being bored! I teach grammar in context, from a reading assignment or article. From the reading, we pick out a particular grammar point to learn. The student learns not only the rule, but how it is applied and how the meaning of the sentence might change if the rule is not followed. We practice how the structure is used in conversation, and the importance of grammar and formality in writing.
For TOEFL and IELTS students, I tailor lessons to improve reading, writing, speaking and listening skills, and also focus on test taking techniques. The goal is to do well on the exam, but also to improve the skills that are necessary to succeed at university. Lessons can focus on any or all of the tested skills, depending on what the student needs.
I teach an advanced grammar course and essay writing in preparation for exams. I tutor students on the process of writing an essay, from subject selection and essay structure through the grammar, sentence structure and paragraph formation necessary for writing a good essay. My business experience includes over ten years working overseas for an international company where my responsibilities included preparing presentations and writing marketing materials and proposals.
