About Colleen

I am an Arizona State University graduate with a BA in English and a TESOL certificate to teach English as a second language. I have taken courses in English composition, literature, and linguistics, as well as courses in second language acquisition and second language teaching. I have worked as an instructional assistant in English courses at both Arizona State and Grand Canyon University and have also worked as a writing tutor at South Mountain Community College. I have trained under the American Youth Literacy Foundation as a reading tutor and have worked with elementary school students at the Hirsch Academy and the Boys and Girls club in Phoenix, AZ.

I consider the tutoring experience to be the most valuable when it comes to learning and have seen great success with my past students as a result of the special one-on-one instruction which can only come from individual tutoring. I am looking forward to continuing to work with students to develop their English reading, writing, and speaking proficiency and to develop better and more effective methods of instruction.

My qualifications include English grammar, reading, writing, and conversational practice for both first and second language English users.
