Are you looking to improve your spoken or written English? I am a dynamic, creative, and fun ESL teacher and writer who loves to provide individualized learning experiences for her students! I currently teach adult ESL at the Virginia Tech Culture and Language Institute, have a Masters degree in Linguistics and Teaching ESL and a BA in Creative Writing, as well as 20 years of experience as a professional writer. I am a visiting poet for Arlington County Public Schools, have taught adult ESL classes at other schools, and also have developed training courses for Federal employees, so I have a lot of teaching experience as well. The study of English is fundamentally about communicating, so in my teaching, I like to move beyond textbooks to look at English-language books, newspapers, menus, music, TV shows, and other "real" materials. I will assess your skills and tailor our lessons together to teach you exactly what you will need to feel more comfortable in the English-speaking world.
In addition, as a professional writer, I can help you improve your business or academic writing, which is often the most difficult skill for ESL learners to master. English is a complex and often-puzzling language to those who weren't born speaking it, and getting an English tutor is an investment in yourself--make this investment one that pays by hiring an experienced and knowledgeable tutor.
