About Shelley

Do you have difficulty being understood by your classmates or co-workers? I specialize in accent reduction and pronunciation. With a background in speech pathology and experience teaching ESL pronunciation, I will focus on your specific needs and create a unique accent reduction program just for you.

Do you need help with conversational English? My teaching experience includes designing conversation courses that allow each student the opportunity to practice using their newly acquired English skills while continuing to learn vocabulary and grammar.

I have a Master's Degree in TESOL from the University of San Francisco, a TESL Certificate from U.C. Berkeley, a B.S. in Speech Pathology & Audiology from Ohio University and six years of teaching experience. You can be assured that I will do my best to help you achieve your goals in learning English and/or improving your pronunciation.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have a B.S. in Speech Pathology & Audiology from Ohio University, a TESL Certificate from U.C. Berkeley and an M.A. TESOL from the University of San Francisco. My Master's Thesis at USF was the development of an Intermediate/Advanced Conversation course which included listening, speaking, reading and writing activities. I have six years of ESL teaching experience focused on teaching pronunciation, conversation and speaking/listening skills.

She went over about vocabularies, some idioms. What I like from her tutoring: working on my grammar. She taught me to believe my self.
