With years of teaching ESL and English, I am dedicated to the advancement of my students. Using interactive and engaging methods, I instruct all the basics of English, including reading, writing, grammar, speaking, and listening.
Either in conjunction, or separately with English, I coach public speaking and presentation skills. I have years of successfully preparing participants with presenting to various sizes of groups, including with Powerpoint.
I also offer German language tutoring. My minor in German from my B.A., a year study at the University of Freiburg, Germany, and 3.5 years of living in Berlin qualifies me to help students with this interesting and fun language.
For those students needing assistance with political science and social studies, I hold a B.A. in political science.
My Masters of Architecture qualifies me to instruct students in the basics of architecture design and drawing, and particularly one of my passions, architectural history.
I look forward to contributing to your success!
I am qualified to tutor in architecture due to my Master of Architecture degree from the University of California, Los Angeles, and 15 years in the architecture field. I initially worked as an intern architect, and then spent the rest of my career in architecture in marketing.
As an ESL teacher in Berlin, Germany, I taught IELTS test preparation for over several years. I helped students with all aspects of the test. For example, to prepare for the reading section, I taught the different reading techniques to efficiently read and answer reading comprehension questions during the test. For the writing section, I taught the fundamentals of essay writing, writing concisely, and effective paragraph and sentence structures.
I am qualified to tutor Political Science because this was my major for my B.A. from the University of Massachusetts, Boston. Most recently, for my ESL teaching in Berlin, I regularly used Political Science topics for reading and speaking activities.
As part of my marketing career in architecture, I regularly prepared professionals for presentations to clients. Most recently, I coached presentation skills in Berlin as part of my ESL teaching and seminars for architects. I teach the basics of public speaking, such as voice level and tone, body language, and eye contact. I coach and assess participants as they practice their presentations. Effectively using graphic aids, such as PowerPoint, is also often part of my teaching in this area.
