I have discovered that the best way to teach, and to learn, is to make the subject relevant and enjoyable for the student. Therefore, I am a firm believer in one-on-one or small group teaching. Each lesson should be catered specifically to the student, their interests and needs. Learning does not have to be frustrating or "a waste of time" it can, and should be, fun and rewarding. Therefore, I cannot tell you exactly what my teaching style looks like because it changes for each student. I can tell you, however, that my goal in tutoring is to not just help students comprehend the material, but help them enjoy it and want to learn.

Languages are hard and confusing, especially at first. At the same time, they are so useful and important. A language is like a passageway to another world. I would love the chance to help you (or your student) make his/her way into this new world of language or get a firmer grip upon the one they have grown up speaking.

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

I am about to finish a ESL certification at my university. I have also had many opportunities to work in ESL contexts, both overseas and locally. I have worked with all age groups, from elementary ESL students to adults. I understand the necessity of learning the English langauge, especially for those living in the US. I believe that practical, conversational language is the best way to learn English. I also recognize that everyone learns differently and lessons must be catered specifically to each person, depeding on their level and needs.
