Hi! I am available to tutor INDONESIAN SPEAKERS who are serious about learning English.

I've been teaching adult learners for over 25 years. As your personal ESL tutor, I would use the same coaching skills that have helped my graduate-level students over the years to help you as well.

For example, as your tutor I would:

-Provide an initial learning assessment meeting at no charge
-Write a personal learning plan for you that identifies your goals and tracks progress
-Meet with you in learning sessions of 60, 90, or 120 minute sessions
-Provide genuine encouragement during the learning process
-Show personal interest in your learning goals
-Treat you with respect as a fellow learner whose journey has great value
-Do everything possible to make learning enjoyable, meaningful, and relevant

My credentials include a PhD in global studies, TESOL certificate, Life Purpose Coach certification, a professor for 25 years, and native American English speaker. I am learning a second language too - Indonesian. As an Indonesian language learner, I have an even greater understanding of ESL students who work so hard to learn English.

Saya bisa bicara Bahasa Indonesia sedikit dan pergi sering ke Bali!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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

Following a free "needs assessment" meeting, I will build a customized lesson plan to help you achieve your English Language goals.

I have worked with adult learners to accomplish English Language goals such as:

1. Becoming more confident in speaking conversational English
2. Reducing strong accents that may hinder clear communication
3. Learning English grammar
4. Building reading skills
5. Increasing vocabulary
6. Sharpening listening skills
7. Improving business communication skills for the American corporate culture
8. Using correct, appropriate, and precise English in written academic papers

I usually meet with learners one to three times a week (60, 90, or 120 minute sessions) until goals are reached.
