Grossmont College (English)
My main goal as an ESL TOEFL & IELTS English teacher & examiner for over 18 years has never changed in all these years. It has been to provide the skills and tools necessary for success as well as to foster the individual talents of each student. This gives them confidence to embrace their dreams and make them a reality.
Since I've taught both domestically & abroad in Iran my students are mainly from Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Iran and Japan. Their scores have been from 90-120 on the TOEFL & 8/10 band on IELTS. They have been doctors, lawyers, engineers, professors, dentist & managers. Who have successfully gone on to fulfill their dreams & goals.
The talent to build meaningful relationships with my students and the determination to "go the extra mile" are two of my strengths as a teacher. Through the development of a relationship that is honest, open and respectable students come to know that I understand them and accept them as they are.
I can guarantee that if each student follows my instructions and studies hard they will achieve a high score either on the TOEFL or IELTS. This can usually be done in 4 or 6 weeks depending on the student.
GOD has given me an amazing gift and talent as a ESL TOEFL & IELTS English educator & examiner to encourage and train students to be highly successful by achieving their dreams.

If the students doesn't give me a one hour advanced notice about the cancellation of their class, then they will be charged my hourly fee of $35.
Kathy prepared me for my TOEFL exam. She knows the TOEFL exam inside and out. She listens carefully. She adjusted her teaching method to my learning needs and taught me in the way that helps me the best. She is more than just a tutor she is also a coach. She is also very dependable: she has been always punctual and prepared.
I highly recommend Kathy!
I really enjoyed my time with Kathy. She's a good tutor. She treated me as a son and helped a lot. I'm really happy that I accomplished the score I needed in the tutoring class and I wish to earn a good score on up coming test and this all because of her and her help.
She is an excellent tutor as she knows what to do with ESL students. She is confident and always positive. She understands the problems with ESL students over her experiences. The technique she uses is hard at first, but soon I realized that I used the same technique in Japanese on my Japanese exam.
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.
I have taught IELTS for 15 years both here & in Tehran, Iran. My students were managers,doctors,lawyers & engineers. Also, I tested the students by using the Cambridge books 1-7. & the Baron IELTS.
