First, I absolutely love my job, and I am 110% dedicated to your success.
My deal: Okay, let's get right to it. Knowing a language and knowing how to teach a language are two very different things. I know English and Spanish, and I know how to TEACH English and Spanish. I have been studying the WAY to learn languages for the past 6 years. I am in love with languages and how to learn them effectively and really learn them, not just memorize them. There is no way to learn a language QUICKLY OR IN 3 MONTHS, so please don't ask. I am constantly trying new ways to develop learning materials, and I spend my weekends browsing bookstores, websites, and talking to others about the best ways to teach languages. I live for it. I have also studied Japanese, and I am at an intermediate French level, having passed the B1 DELF test given by native French speakers and needed to be able to work in France. I do not teach French though. ; )
The boring stuff: Bachelor's in English Literature, Boston University. Study abroad program in Madrid, Spain. Also studied in Guadalajara, Mexico, and worked in Campeche, Mexico as a teacher. I also wrote for a newspaper in Boston.
Experience: 6 years experience teaching English and Spanish to companies all over Dallas: US companies want to learn Spanish and companies from Korea, Japan, and Spain want to improve their English. And they hire me to help them reach their goals.
I have five employees that also teach languages, but through Wyzant you WILL ONLY WORK WITH ME.
More stuff I teach with zeal and pizzazz: SAT/ACT and most forms of test prep. After over 25 students, everyone has still scored higher.
I am a dynamic, driven and determined tutor, not to mention fun. Whether you need to pass a particularly difficult exam or you want to learn or improve English or Spanish, we will work together to succeed.
Send me an email and we will strategize on how to structure your lessons in order to reach your goals.
Taking tests has always been a forte of mine, and explaining how to pass them has always been another one. I understand how tests like the SAT, ACT, and ASVAB work, and I like sharing the secrets to passing these tests. I cannot wait to work with anyone who really wants to rock the ASVAB and get a great position in the military. This test is extremely important in determining your future with the military, and you don't want to start off on the wrong foot by not preparing. You want to show them that you mean business, and that you are there to work. Start off the right way; I will help you succeed.
With over 4 years of teaching English experience, I know I can help you reach any and all of your English goals. I too have had the experience of learning a second language, so I think this gives me the empathy and patience required when helping students with their goals. I truly look forward to helping you reach your English goals, whether they be simple conversations, college level writing, or understanding those tricky phrasal verbs. Please contact me, and let's get started.
I have been teaching English for over 5 years in Mexico and the US. I am a full time tutor in the subject, so you, my student, are my full time job. I make sure to cover a variety of topics in my lessons: phrasal verbs (to boil down to), idioms (Hold your horses!), slang (What a bummer!), cultural curiosities (You bet!), conversation starters, and more. Even better, the class is customized to what YOU need to learn. Since I've also lived in another country learning a new language, I truly have the patience and empathy needed to successfully assist you with your English goals. I understand the challenges. I will make it fun and interesting too. I also love explaining the 'why's' about your new language.
I have a very specific course for the GED. After taking a GRE course for graduate school, I started designing my own course for the GED, SAT, and ACT. The course covers all areas of the test, and all of my students have raised their scores. I make it fun, while helping you reach your goals.
The ISEE is very similar to the PSAT. I have prepared many students for both tests. With me and a lot of hard work, your child will succeed on this test. I usually allow at least 6 weeks of preparation so there is less stress. Of course, there are always special exceptions. Please let me know if I can help you prepare for this entrance exam.
I have a degree in English literature, and I have worked with children for years, teaching them the patterns of the English language in reading. Sight words and daily reading will quickly give your child the confidence to read more and, most of all, the love of reading.
The SAT Reading Test can be approached in a very logical way. Let me help you conquer this section of the test. Running out of time? Trying to read every line of the passage? Rereading the passage over and over again? Don't let this section make your head swim. Please contact me, and let me help you master this section of the SAT.
I am qualified to teach Spanish, especially here in Dallas, because I have been tutoring here with the Dallas curriculum for the past 4 years. I have lived in both Spain and Mexico studying history and literature in Spanish, so I bring a wide variety of knowledge to my craft. I understand the challenges an English speaker has with Spanish, so I have mastered expertise explanations that clear up any confusion.
The TAKS test was designed in a specific way to teach children how to read actively, learn problem solving techniques, and basically, to learn how to take these types of tests. Texas wants its students prepared for standardized testing, and is attacking this by giving a TAKS test each year until junior year of high school. These tests are logical, and can be passed easily with preparation. They do not necessarily test knowledge, but rather logic. Together, we can get past the stress of these tests. They don't have to be a nightmare each year that strains the child and parents. Let me help you prepare in advance. Don't wait til the last minute!
The TOEFL test wants to make sure that you have an academic and functioning knowledge of the English language. They are going to test every aspect of your language skills. Let me prepare you for this test with my excellent pronunciation practice, grammar drills, writing prompts, and conversation skills. I look forward to helping you conquer this test and move on to reaching your goals.
Wouldn't suggest any other tutor! She's perfect!! — I was skeptical at first, because I hadn't ever done an individual tutoring session with anyone before. But Micah has proven to be nothing short of amazing. She's helped me so much in the little time I have been tutoring with her, and breaks lessons down in a way where it's very simple to learn and understand. She's patient with all your questions, and really makes it fun! I can always get in cont ...
