Loyola University, New Orleans, LA. (English)
I graduated university cum laude, and was a member of my college's English Honors Society. I haven't tutored professionally before, but I was a proofreader on the university literary magazine and have often helped friends with writing projects.
I recently went 'back to school', and obtained a 100-hour ESL teaching certification from Oxford Seminars. Afterward, I decided I'd rather teach English in a one-to-one situation because those will allow me to better help you as a student, whatever stage in learning English that you might be at. I can do so in your own time, as well.
I am new to WyzAnt. So I do not have any prior, relevant tutoring experience. I am not new to speaking, reading and writing English, though. And being a native speaker, I'm familiar with the nuances involved in communicating using English.
If it's any aspect of the language you need help with, I can provide it. I specialize in spelling, reading and writing English. However, speaking and listening are equally important to learning the language, and I know how important grammar is to that end, also. I'm most interested in helping you at your own pace, and according to your own, individual learning abilities. Your personal interests are also very important to me, because we can use those to create lesson content you will be enthusiastic about undertaking and completing.
I have always been a careful user of the words in my native English language. And having been an English major and writer in school, and a writer in my free time now, I will not consider my teaching tasks complete until you can speak, write and comprehend English intelligently, no matter the areas of life in which you might choose to use it.
I do have a two-hour cancellation policy. Locations for tutoring sessions can be sorted out based on mutual convenience. I can help you whether you are an absolute beginner in English, or whether you are an advanced student - and anything in between. And, I look forward to hearing from you if you are interested in learning and/or progressing in your knowledge of English.

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.
