Hello! My name is Elisabeth and I'd love to help you improve your communication skills, either in English or in French. I grew up overseas as the daughter of a U.S. Foreign Service Officer. I love learning about new cultures and new languages. In college, I majored in French and studied abroad in France. After college, I completed a month long intensive certificate program in Teaching English as a Foreign Language. In this program, I studied English grammar and teaching methodologies. I was able to put my learning into practice every afternoon when I taught lessons that I had planned. Upon finishing the program, I was hired to teach month long intensive ESL classes to adults. I have also served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Burkina Faso, a French speaking country in West Africa. I love getting to know my students as individuals. It is important for me to understand their goals, interests, and preferred learning styles. With this knowledge, I can tailor lessons that will be both educational and fun.

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.

Public Speaking

I have been a member of Toastmasters International for over four years. Toastmasters has an extensive public speaking curriculum. I have completed the basic Competent Communicator manual twice. This manual guides you through ten speech assignments that allow you to practice with different aspects of public speaking from speech content to delivery. I have also completed advanced manuals dealing with specific types of speaking, like speaking to inform. As a member of Toastmasters, I have been mentored by seasoned speakers. Once I had been a member for several years, I began mentoring new club members, coaching them through their first speeches.
