I am an English teacher with over 16 years of teaching businesspeople, students and children in individual and group format. I speak Spanish, French, Portuguese, some Japanese, Greek, Farsi, Chinese, Hebrew, etc.
I love to teach both children and adults equally, and am funny and fun!
I have been cleared by the Department of Education to teach and have taught foreign businesspersons, small children and students. I also have a room in my house that I rent out to Japanese and Korean international students who are learning English. I have been doing this for 10 years and have also personally tutored in English conversation, grammar, accent reduction and TOEFL. I am about to receive my TESOL certification, and have done two internships for my certification, one in an adult ESL program where I taught 20 students at a time, and one in my school where I assisted in an class in ESL and music.
I have a B.A. from Hunter College, where I majored in Urban Affairs, English and Psychology and minored in media. I worked my way through school in various administrative positions, and taught one student English in exchange for Japanese, which is when I started tutoring, in 1992.
I have a M.A. in Small Business Management from New York University, where I also took my real estate salesperson and brokers courses. I worked in the field of real estate rentals and sales for 10 years, at one point brokering 100 rent-stabilized buildings with my father in our company, Elias Realty. I have also worked in public relations, advertising and media sales.
I am very flexible and can accommodate you by either providing you with material to teach, or by using outside sources. I possess grammar books, dictionaries in French, Portuguese and Spanish, and textbooks in English language learning.
I think what makes me different is that I am a kid myself, and never stop learning!!
I am a very experienced and caring businesswoman who has over 20 years of business experience in New York City. I have been a sales assistant, administrative assistant, media salesperson (radio, business TV, newspaper advertising, as well as luxury magazine advertising. After media sales, I spent over 15 years as a self-employed realtor, working with private companies such as Manhattan Network, Ashforth Warburg and Magnum Realty in Manhattan as well as Marin Management, a very fun, profitable and lucrative family real estate company for over 4 years.
I have a B.A. from Hunter College, a Small Business Management degree from New York University, and currently am a private English teacher who has worked with many business people for the past 5 years. I have worked with clients from Banco Santander, KPMG, Mitsui, and others. Because of my diverse background and experience, I would be happy to help you...Cheers!
Finally, I work with many private agencies to obtain my international teaching clientele.
I am a certified, dynamic and friendly ESL teacher who has been teaching for over 18 years, and I truly love what I do. I have a room in my home which I have been renting to foreign students for over 10 years, and I have taught various homestay students English while living with me.
In addition, I am accredited by the NY State Department of Career Schools to teach English in private school and have been fingerprinted and checked by the NYC Department of Education to teach in public school and in students homes. Because I have worked with students in their homes for over 18 years, I would be happy to help you.
I have a year of experience teaching in an adult ESL evening program, as well as two years of TESOL training from Hello World Language School. Finally, I am affiliated with wyzant, craigslist, interact ( a homestay agency), ALP (American Language Programs) an international agency that gets me direct homestay students. And, I speak Spanish, French and Portuguese, so I can communicate with you in your own language. So, I would be happy to work with you!
