All of Terese’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Terese’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

English

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.

ESL/ESOL

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.

Grammar

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.

TOEFL

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.

Writing

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.

Approved Subjects

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
