About Kathleen

I have been an English teacher for almost ten years. I am completely committed to my job and to my students. I have a love for the English language that I pass on to my students. I first started teaching in 2006 as a private tutor, but become a teacher of English in 2007 at a language school. Since then, I've been teaching full time, both ESL and TOEFL.

I truly enjoy working with students from all over the globe and making a difference in their lives. I have seen many of my students go on to pass the TOEFL and get into the university of their dreams.

I have been teaching TOEFL for almost six years, and have also written for TOEFL books that are used in Japan. I know all the tricks and traps of the TOEFL and have hundreds of tips on how to beat the TOEFL and get the score you want. I am also an ESL teacher, and can teach grammar, reading and writing skills, as well as pronunciation and idioms.

Contact me at your convenience and we can meet and see if we are a good fit!

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.

IELTS

I was trained by IELTS in Los Angeles in how to rate the speaking and the writing sections. I took a sixteen hour seminar with IELTS learning how these sections are scored, what the raters look for, and practice assessing candidate's abilities. I also teach test preparation full time. I am a TOEFL teacher in an ESL school. IELTS and TOEFL are very similar in many respects.
