About Stephen

It would be a pleasure to work with anyone who wants to master English, or just get basic knowledge. I absolutely love teaching English and have been doing so as a full-time career for over 10 years. I have taught in many countries and am very aware how culture is also a part of learning language. I am currently teaching English (ESL) at a university in San Francisco. I have extra time some weekday evenings and weekends.

I have taught TOEFL, business English, English for art purposes, writing, public speaking to name a few. I have an MA in Education and both a TEFL and TESOL certificate.

Learning English will be challenging, but I promise to give you many necessary tools to engage with this fantastic language so you can communicate right away and for a lifetime!

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.

Public Speaking

I have taught and am currently teaching public speaking. It is a topic I am passionate about and feel confident i can serve my students with excellent skills. It is important students get a brief history on public speaking which would entail ethos, pathos, and logos. Next, teach lessons to make them at ease when speaking publicly. Lastly, I would combine body language skills and effective sign posts to ensure the speaking is audience centered. Surely, appropriate language skills would be taught throughout.
