University of South Florida
Concordia University-Portland (Master's)
My name is Alfred, although my friends simply call me, Al. Among many things, I really love to play the guitar, hike, swim and camp in my free time. I grew up in Wisconsin and moved to Florida when I was young. There, I earned my undergraduate degree at the University of South Florida. After teaching in South Korea for a few years, I earned my MA in TESOL from Concordia University-Portland. My experience includes teaching ESL in Universities in Ecuador and the US, teaching in community colleges, and public schools. In addition, I have tutored students from a variety of backgrounds including: MBA students, Engineering students and working adults.
One of the best things I love about tutoring is building relationships with my students. I find that the more I know about a student, the more interesting and engaging the lesson will be. I am also a life-long learner myself, so I really love to learn more about different cultures, languages, and ideas. I am learning Spanish at the moment, but hope to someday study Arabic and Mandarin. Can you help me achieve those goals?
I have experience teaching and tutoring ESL and English Language Arts to students ages pre-k- college. I have taught/tutored ESL/ELA in South Korea, Ecuador, the US, and online. My areas of expertise include: TOEFL/IELTS test prep, pronunciation, fluency, reading, and writing.
If you have any questions about my experience, schedule, and availability please contact me. I look forward to hearing from you! Hello Everyone,

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.
