About Rebecca

I have more than 10 years experience in teaching English to speakers of other languages. My experience includes teaching Business English, Accent Reduction, Public Speaking, Writing Composition and TOEFL preparation. I have a strong appreciation for diverse cultures and enjoy helping English Language Learners improve upon and expand their skills for usage in their daily/professional lives.

My experience has primarily been with adults and K-12. I feel I have a solid command of teaching ESL and more importantly, a love of teaching. Both my students and employers are pleased and my client base continues to grow. I use primarily a humanistic and communicative approach. While I feel grammar and vocabulary are of the utmost importance, my base philosophy is that students learn through prefabricated chunks and therefore, I use techniques such as agreeing, inviting and suggesting (communicative strategies) in the classroom to foster learning and language awareness. I concentrate on receptive skills (reading and listening) and on productive skills (speaking and writing) in classes and try to incorporate all four areas in any given lesson. I personalize my approach, try to make things fun and creative while maintaining a classroom environment that is stimulating and challenging.


I have a Bachelor's Degree in Communications and am a certified ESL Instructor. I have worked with many different types of English Language Learners in a variety of capacities. I am able to identify areas of strengths and weaknesses very quickly in order to facilitate the learning process. I am knowledgeable and competent in the field of ESL and will be able to suggest appropriate textbooks and learning materials tailored to each students' individual needs.

Please contact me for a consultation. We can discuss what your needs are and tailor a curriculum specifically designed to meet those needs. I am available for tutoring sessions Sunday - Thursday from 10am - 1pm and 7pm - 9pm and Friday - Saturday from 10am - 4pm. I look forward to working with you and helping you take your English skills to another level! Call anytime...
