I have experience working with English as a second language learners from my time as a full time ESL teacher in South Korea. I was responsible for teaching writing, grammar, vocabulary, phonics, social studies, reading and science, all on the primary level. I am also a great writing coach, and have experience working as both a writer and editor for online and print newspapers. With that said, I can offer editing and compositional advice for essay writing on the high school and college level. My strategy as a tutor is to understand where the student has difficulties, assess their strengths, and build from there.
My phonics teaching background comes from my time as a primary school ESL teacher in South Korea. While there I taught out of an American Phonics textbook made by Sadlier-Oxford, a broad application K-12 phonics primer ideal for ESL learners. Primary subjects covered were grapheme and phoneme matching, and differentiating between homographs and homophones within specific spoken and written contexts.
