About Tracy

Hello students! My name is Tracy. I have been living in Florence Italy for the past year. During the year I spent abroad, I gave private English lessons and tutored Italian children and adults. I have also been teaching English online to Chinese students for the past 10 months. Prior to teaching, I spent my career as a clinical social worker, providing therapy and counseling to children and their families. I have extensive experience facilitating groups and providing education on various social issues.

I am super passionate about helping students learn and watching people grow. As I have recently experienced the challenge of trying to learn a new language myself, I am patient and compassionate towards my students who are learning English. I have received consistent positive feedback and reviews from my students, both children and adults, about my teaching methods and dynamic personality. I feel I am able to combine good, solid teaching with having fun and enjoying the learning process!

I obtained my TEFL certificate and am qualified to teach ESL with a concentration on grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, reading and speaking. I am also an excellent proofreader and love editing and proofing papers and lessons. I have my Masters Degree in Social Work and my License in Clinical Social Work. This education and my career in social work has provided me extensive experience in working with people of all cultures, ethnicities, backgrounds and ages. I have worked and lived in the US (California and Hawaii) and most recently in Italy. I am well rounded, flexible, patient, understanding and most of all I believe that learning can and should be FUN!!!

I hope to hear from you to schedule a lesson or tutoring session with me! I will be requiring a 12 hour cancellation notice and will provide you with the same courtesy. I am dependable and responsible. I would only cancel a lesson in the case of an emergency! Please contact me if you would like more information or to talk and see if we are a good "fit." I am eager to help you learn and grow and be all that you can be!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have worked with children in grades K-6th during my 20 year career in social work. I have extensive experience working in the schools and in hospitals with this age group. I have also worked with people of many different cultures, ethnicities and backgrounds. My experience extends to Italy and Hawaii. I have the ability to establish rapport with children in this age group and make my lessons fun! Kids respond well to me and I always receive positive feedback from their parents. I currently teach online to children of this age group in China. I also tutored many Italian children this past year that were of this age range. I am patient, understanding, enthusiastic and I make learning fun!
