I am a former Head Teacher and Academic Manager of an ESL program in NYC.
I am also an experienced, personable, attentive, enthusiastic New York University MA TESOL graduate with many years of ESL, TOEFL, writing, CATW/R, and Business English teaching experience. Focus areas include academic writing, creative writing, critical thinking and reading skills, vocabulary, speaking and pronunciation, listening skills, and test preparation.

I have access to texts of all levels and interests.
The method of teaching and assessment I use varies depending on a student's individual goals, but after a brief interview and with your input, I will design a course that is tailored to your needs and interests. All sessions include homework.
I encourage your feedback during and after our time together.
My rate is negotiable depending on number of hours booked. I also offer group discounts.

I look forward to working with you!

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.

ESL/ESOL

Since receiving my MA in TESOL from NYU in 2007, I have acquired over six years of teaching experience in which I have had the pleasure of teaching and developing curricula for both immigrant and international student populations in all skill areas and levels, from beginning to advanced.

In addition to teaching, I have worked as a teacher-trainer and center manager at Kaplan International Center-Midtown. My duties there included sharing my knowledge of teaching materials and teaching practices, revising center-wide curricula and assessments, placing students in classes and making switches when appropriate, and contributing significantly to maintaining the flow and organization of the center. Over the summer of 2011, my work there assisted in the increase of the "quality of teaching" and student recommendation ratings by 18%. All of this experience worked towards making me a better teacher.
