Hello,

I am currently an ESL teacher in Boston Public Schools (high school) and at the YMCA International Learning Center. In 2012 I graduated from Boston University's School of Education with a master's degree in Teaching English as a Second Language.

In addition to teaching, I have extensive experience tutoring high school, college, and adult students of various proficiency levels in English, French, and ESL. I've found holding dialogues, having writing conferences, role-playing activities, and integrating the five modalities of language (reading, writing, speaking, listening, and cultural knowledge) to be very effective methods of teaching and tutoring.

I love living in Boston, creative writing, running, and cooking.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Liza

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 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 majored in Creative Writing and Literary Translation in college. My coursework included contemporary American poetry, British literature, and literature in translation. I'm also an AP Lit grad of a few years ago.

ESL/ESOL

I have a Master's in ESL education. I currently teach ESL to high school students in public schools, as well as to adults at the YMCA International Learning Center.

I studied French throughout college, where I wrote my undergraduate thesis on contemporary poetry written in French, and I lived in Paris briefly.

Literature

I majored in Creative Writing and Literary Translation in college. My coursework included contemporary American poetry, British literature, and literature in translation. I'm also an AP Lit grad of a few years ago.

I have a Master of Education in Teaching English as a Second Language. Part of my training involved assisting in a literacy class, where I helped teach phonics to high school students learning English.

I have my undergraduate degree in creative writing and continue to write news articles, essays, and book reviews as a freelancer. In terms of academic writing, I do some of my own and have helped many a high school student improve his/her writing as a tutor and teacher.
