Are you learning English as a Second Language as an adult? Do you need to learn English for work or school? Would you like help with English listening, speaking, reading, or writing? I would love to work with you.
I am a graduate of the TESLA certificate program (Teaching English as a Second Language to Adults) at the Literacy Assistance Center. I have tutored many adults in English, one at a time and in groups, through WyzAnt and in volunteer programs.
With me, you will want to learn more English! We will discuss your learning needs, and you will also fill out some questionnaires. You will do interesting activities and, if you like, short homework assignments. While I am serious about your learning, I can also be funny. It is not an easy thing for an adult to learn a new language, so it is good to be both serious and funny!
Later on, if you are interested in a trip to help your learning in some way, we could travel in your neighborhood or farther away in the city. For example, a student who wants to converse in English can take a bus trip with me. On the bus, you would listen to people talking. You would write down words and phrases that you hear so we can practice them.
There are many advantages to learning more English through tutoring. Because the tutor gets to know you, she or he can help you to learn in ways that are right for you. We do activities about subjects that you know and like.
Tutoring is also a great way to help you achieve your goals at work or in school. For example, are you a medical student or a doctor studying for the Clinical Skills section of the U.S. Medical Licensing Exam? If so, I would like to tutor you; I am familiar with this material because I tutored a doctor studying for this phase of the exam.
I would love to email and talk with you about your learning goals in English.
