About Antonia

Hello, potential student! I am a fun, energetic and friendly English tutor just back from two years teaching at North China University of Science and Technology. I help intermediate and advanced learners move from struggling with English to speaking fluently and loving it! I use lots of pictures, videos, humor and exciting brain games to make English simple and enjoyable.
As an award-winning marketing writer I am especially eager to help college and business learners improve their writing and communication skills. I speak Spanish and have studied some Mandarin, so if you are a Chinese or Latino student, please contact me here. I understand your native grammar and your ESL needs!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

English

With a degree in English and expertise in writing for the world's top business, entertainment and educational clients, I excel at providing practical guidance in teaching the many different types of English you may need to succeed.

ESL/ESOL

In addition to teaching Mandarin and Cantonese speakers at a 50 thousand student university in China for two years, I have taught English to Arabic, Thai, Korean and Spanish speakers - to name a few. I customize my lessons to focus on your individual needs.

Grammar

As an award-winning writer working for top business and university clients, I know a great deal about grammar. I use tricks, tips and pictures to help you understand the sometimes crazy laws of English grammar!

Marketing

Before becoming an English teacher, I won multiple awards for writing and producing marketing communications for entertainment, education and business clients. My vast experience in TV, website and social media marketing combined with solid credentials as both a brand strategist and an ESL teacher make me the perfect person to help non-native speakers promote their businesses to English speaking customers.

Reading

For decades people paid me to read and interpret technical documents, business communications and fiction. They would have been surprised to learn that I began life with a reading disability! I understand how difficult reading can be - whether it is because English is not your first language, or because you have other challenges. I can give you tools and solutions to improve so much you may learn to feel that reading is fun! I will help you read the kind of material that is the most important and interesting to you.

TOEFL

In addition to teaching Mandarin and Cantonese speakers at a 50 thousand student university in China for two years, I have taught English to Arabic, Thai, Korean and Spanish speakers - to name a few. I customize my lessons to focus on your individual needs.

Writing

For over 20 years, I served as a freelance writer for some pretty impressive companies and institutions: Disney, Warner Bros., Oracle, Occidental College, USC, CBS News and more. I know many styles of writing and I can help you pick just the right type of language to communicate with the people you want to reach.
