About Andrew

Hi. A little bit about me: I have seven years of experience tutoring and teaching adult and academic ESL inside and outside of the classroom. I graduated with honors from Cal State, Northridge with both a BA and MA in linguistics. My concentration in graduate school was in phonetics and phonology. I now work as a freelance editor, tutor, and accent modification instructor. I am currently working toward a second master's degree in speech-language pathology with the goal of one day providing treatment to those with speech and language disorders.

My subject-specific qualifications are available on this site for you to review. For your convenience, I have listed the subjects I tutor in more detail below. If you have any questions, please message me. Thanks!

ESL Students: I specialize in grammar, conversation, reading, writing, and TOEFL and IELTS preparation. Pronunciation and accent modification services are also available.

Linguistics Students: I specialize in introductory linguistics, syntax (including GB and MP), phonology, and phonetics.

General Homework: I can assist with researching and writing papers, preparing for presentations and exams, and completing any other homework assignments. I can also proofread and provide feedback on essays and reports.

I offer reduced rates for clients who meet with me multiple times per week or for more than an hour per session.

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.

English

My undergrad work focused mainly on English linguistics with course subjects including English syntax and morphology (grammar) and English phonetics and phonology (pronunciation). As a graduate student, I took advanced classes in ESL grammar, syntax, and phonetics and phonology. I have seven years of experience in ESL tutoring and instruction.

ESL/ESOL

I have seven years of experience in ESL tutoring and instruction. My MA work included courses in TESL (Teaching English as a Second Language) methods and grammar. If you would like to work on your pronunciation, grammar, or you just need a conversation partner, I can help.

Grammar

Grammar is a passion of mine, and I love sharing that passion with others who want or need to learn it. My undergrad work focused mainly in English linguistics with course subjects including English syntax and morphology (i.e., grammar). My graduate coursework included formal English grammar instruction and advanced syntax. I have seven years of experience in ESL tutoring and instruction.

Proofreading

I have an MA in linguistics and developed my writing skills over the course of my education. If you need help with polishing a term paper, ensuring that marketing materials are error free, or have a resume and cover letter you'd like reviewed, I can assist you.

I currently work for a China-based company that provides academic advisement and proofreading for Chinese students pursuing graduate degrees in English-speaking countries.

Speech

I am an accent modification instructor and own my own service. As a graduate student working toward an MA in linguistics, my concentration was in phonetics and phonology (i.e., pronunciation). My courses included Speech Anatomy and Physiology, Advanced Phonology, Articulatory Phonetics, and Acoustic Phonetics. I have three years of experience in pronunciation instruction. I am currently pursuing a master's in speech-language pathology.

TOEFL

I have over four years of experience preparing students for the TOEFL, which includes one year of experience in tutoring and preparing ESL students at California State University, Northridge's Intensive English Program.
