I am a professional tutor who has lived and worked overseas for the last 20 years. I started tutoring English while living in Asia and Europe, and loved it. I found that I got a lot of satisfaction in helping people improve their English. I have a BA from the University of Pennsylvania as well as Cambridge University's CELTA certification to teach English as a second language. I have taught at language schools, worked with literacy organizations and tutored all levels of English learners. I am patient, dedicated, and experienced; I will work with you to reach your goals. I have practice exams and study materials, so there is no need for students to purchase additional materials. Whether you are looking for help to pass professional exams, improve scores on proficiency exams, learn specialized business English or just communicate better in English, I will work with you to identify weaknesses and improve your skills.
I design lessons to the individual needs and goals of each student. I usually focus on communication skills with an emphasis on grammar. I concentrate on speaking, listening and reading in class and writing skills for homework. For students preparing for exams, I focus on improving your skills as well as test-taking techniques. I have successfully worked with international students preparing for the TOEFL, IELTS, USMLE, GRE, MCAT and LSAT exams.
I have lived in six countries on four continents, with extended stays in a dozen more. I know what it feels like to adapt to a new culture and to try to learn a new language as quickly as possible. It is not easy, but the rewards are great when you succeed.
I also offer semi-private, small group, and Skype lessons at discounted hourly rates. I look forward to working with you!
