I am an American who has lived 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 Cambridge University's CELTA certification, as well as a BA from the University of Pennsylvania. I have all the materials you will need to improve your English and all the practice exams you will need to prepare for the TOEFL or IELTS. I am patient, dedicated, and experienced; I will work with you to reach your goals.
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 can help you.
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 also offer semi-private and small group lessons at a discounted hourly rate. I look forward to working with you!
