About Henry

I have been tutoring and teaching ESL and academic subjects for about 25 years here in the U.S. and abroad (Japan). I have taught all levels and age groups. I currently teach ESL at a community college and a university in the Los Angeles area. I am writing my dissertation for a Ph.D. in Education with a specialization in ESL. I am well-versed in a number of theories and practical approaches to help all students learn.

What I really like about tutoring is that I get to meet a wide range of students on an individual basis. Working one-to-one is probably the best way for students to learn because I can focus directly on your needs and learning style. In addition to being extremely patient, flexible, and fun my students say that they can really understand what I'm trying to teach them. This is a key factor in their success.

In terms of my qualifications, I have a BA in Japanese, MA in TESOL, and will finish my Ph.D. in the next year or so. I have taught all domains of ESL (listening/speaking/reading/writing/vocabulary/pronunciation) at language schools and colleges as well as TOEFL and IELTS test preparation. I have also taught academic writing, critical thinking, business and communications at the college level. In addition to my educational background, I have held executive- level positions in business and business management.

I believe that my experience, education, and passion for helping students of all ages would make me a "good match" for whatever goal you're trying to accomplish. Give me a call or text to find out how I can help.

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

For five years I have taught IELTS test preparation classes almost every term at the English Language Center at Drexel University. (I was trained by the Test Center Manager.) Additionally, I have analyzed the IELTS and TOEFL exams during my doctoral studies.

Marketing

During my time as a district and regional manager, I was responsible for developing marketing plans for my district and region. In both cases, I was extremely successful. Additionally, I have developed and taught business and marketing courses at the college level (Drexel University).
