About Judith

I have more than 30 years' experience writing and editing English in business, as a technical writer and researcher, and providing research, writing and editing for undergraduate through post-graduate students.

My approach to tutoring begins with first assessing the individual student's levels and strengths, making it possible to customize lessons in order to optimize individual skills and talents. This always results in success, because it emphasizes the student becoming empowered by learning and understanding. Reading comprehension, writing, vocabulary and grammar all become enhanced as the result of cultivating the individual talents and skills each student already has. My focus is on developing individual skills and talents, to enable every student to enjoy acquiring and using life-long language skills!

I am experienced working with all educational levels, including K-12, and I am able to assist you with raising your English skills to your highest, personal best: this includes English Second Language (ESL): I hold an Advanced Certification in TESL/TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) and can assist students with the skills to integrate reading comprehension, vocabulary and pronunciation, spelling and writing which will allow them to achieve success and empowerment.

My teaching style is both conversational and educational. Your English reading, writing and speaking skills will best reflect you as an individual.

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

I have more than 30 years of experience tutoring ESL and TEFL (English as a second language, and English as a foreign language), including business English, conversational English, test preparation and reading/writing/grammar and vocabulary development.

I possess Advanced Certification in TESL (teaching English as a second language) and TEFL (teaching English as a foreign language).

I love working with students because every individual is a wonderful combination of talent, intelligence, gifts and abilities: my passion is working with the individual to cultivate their natural skills and abilities to enhance their contextual English language skills, and my goal is that they enjoy the process and become empowered by it.
