I have taught English as a second language in Russia, China, and here in Philadelphia and have over two years of experience. Two years ago, I received an M.S.Ed., with a focus in teaching ESL, from the University of Pennsylvania. I have taught students from a wide range of backgrounds; some of my recent students have come from Korea, China, Morocco, and Egypt, among other places. It is my joy and my privilege to assist students.
Most of my work has been with high-school age students, but I have also successfully taught college students, graduate students, and working adults, from very basic levels of English all the way up to TOEFL preparation and advanced fluency.
When I meet a new student, I take great effort to understand his or her needs and goals and to work at creating a plan to meet those needs. No student wants one-size-fits-all instruction; you deserve to have a tutor who will work to meet your needs and goals.
I am also able to help with literature, history, geography, and some other humanities subjects. I have excellent proofreading and editing skills, and can help students improve their writing skills.
As an undergraduate at Columbia, I majored in religion. This work involved extensive reading in the Bible as well as an understanding of how, when, and by whom various books of the Bible were written. I feel confident that I could tutor students in both the Old and New Testaments.
As an ESL teacher, I have often had to help students develop their skills in public speaking. While teaching in Russia, I coached business executives on their public speaking skills in English, and I am confident I could improve the public speaking skills of nearly anyone.
