I began teaching English over 10 years ago when I was a freshman in college. A graduate of Barnard College in New York, I have a post-bac certificate in TESOL. Over the years, I've tutored Yemeni immigrants in Brooklyn and international students at Seattle Central Community College, interned for the Tunisian Ministry of Education as a language assistant, taught several classrooms of Japanese high school students, and given many one-on-one lessons to both children and adults. I love having students of all ages and backgrounds and tailoring my teaching to each student's needs.

In addition to teaching locally here in Seattle, I gives online lessons to clients from various global companies. If you're interested in online lessons, don't hesitate to inquire. Where there's a will, there's a way!

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

Do you want to improve your English? My tutoring offers a wide range of activities and lessons to get you speaking English more at ease. I can cater to your needs and base the lessons on the areas you need most work (speaking, listening, reading, or writing). In our lessons, we will use a variety of materials including grammar exercises, news articles, podcasts, and song lyrics. I offer and encourage "homework" in order to get the most out of your time, but this is only recommended for your benefit and not required by any means.
