Dear Prospective Student,
My name is Tammy P. and I have been teaching English as a Second Language for the last three years. My students are adults who come from various countries and backgrounds. I really enjoy teaching English to people from other countries as it allows me to learn about their language and cultures as well.
I use many different methods of teaching English as a Second Language because my individual student's needs vary greatly. For example, a student may have strong English speaking skills yet may want to improve his or her writing skills. Another student may write well but may have problems with pronunciation. Each student's goal is different and therefore, requires a teaching plan that is created just for him or her. The teaching plan should take into account the student's needs, present skill level, learning style, and personal interests.
I would like to add that learning English as a Second Language can be fun too! I strive to make my lessons enjoyable and interesting as well as educational. I look forward to meeting you!
I have been tutoring English as a Second Language for over three years. I have a BS in Communications from Ithaca College and have done graduate work in Intercultural Communications at the University of Pennsylvania. In each tutoring session I work on the skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing. I use many different resources to create my lesson plan including giving the student a copy of a special newspaper that is written in "easy" English for new readers to the English language.
