About Louis

One-on-one private lessons by a well-trained, native-English speaker guarantee fast and enjoyable improvement in your language skills.

I also tutor middle- and high-schoolers (4th-12th graders), both native- and foreign-born, to write better sentences, paragraphs, essays, and short stories and to enjoy writing. Because I am also a professional writer, I share my enthusiasm with my young students.

I earned my certificate for Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) at UCSD, one of the best English language training programs available. My students are of all ages and all nationalities. Through customized lessons and one-on-one coaching, they acquire a greater command of English for employment, academic, or personal purposes. If the desire is for English fluency, better pronunciation, increased vocabulary, or conversation skills, please consider my tutoring services.

Thank you for your consideration.

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.

ACT Reading

Tutoring reading and writing to middle- and high-schoolers over the last six years has given me an excellent knowledge of ACT English and Reading requirements as well as those for SAT Reading and Writing. (It's also given me useful insights into how young people think.... and they don't think.) Students do well on those exams when they know what to look for as they read and how to organize their writing. I can certainly teach that basic information.

ESL/ESOL

I completed my TEFL Certificate at UCSD, and am very adept at teaching all aspects of English communication for academic, professional, and personal achievement. As a published writer I specialize in writing and speaking English, and have had great success in teaching pronunciation and grammar. After evaluation, each student receives customized lessons to address deficiencies and strengthen ability and confidence. Students include Asian, Middle Eastern, and Eastern European of all ages.

Writing

I am a writer and I tutor writing. I am sure I can help you greatly improve your English writing skills both professionally and socially. I am familiar with the challenges as well as the remedies.
