Hi...
I love being a tutor and a teacher.

I'm an experienced English language teacher and tutor with broad experience helping clients/students perfect the skills they need for outstanding performance in increasingly competitive academic and business arenas. I specialize in tutoring writing - intermediate and advanced academic writing, writing for standardized tests,eg SAT, TOEFL, and college entrance writing. I also have extensive experience in teaching writing for business purposes. In my Professional Writing course at the ELP, University of Pennsylvania, I created a paradigm that makes business writing more accessible to students. As a teacher, tutor, and mentor I create a supportive and vibrant learning environment for my clients/students, on-line, in small classes, and at chosen locations.

I especially love tutoring because I can work with people one-on-one. I can design materials around the specific needs of each individual, hard to do in a regular class. I also get to know each student, to learn about their goals, hopes, and plans for the future. I was an English/French major in college and received my Master's degree in English with Concentration in Teaching ESL/ESOL from San Francisco State University. I also hold a Certificate in Human Resource Management from the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania. I have really enjoyed meeting people from all over the world through my ESL/ESOL teaching. I even taught in Korea for five years. What a great experience that was!

I look forward to helping you with your English language skills and needs.

Susan
