About Colleen

I have been a classroom teacher and private tutor for over 30 years. Teaching was a career I chose later in my life. Since that time, I have never regretted that decision. I love watching students learn and gain confidence in themselves. My life has been rich in experiences, so I can connect to students on many levels. I spent 20 years out of the country in Uruguay, South America, where I taught ESL and English literature. I was also a TESOL trainer for over 8 years. Before becoming a teacher, I had my own business with over 150 employees. Yet my greatest love is teaching and helping each student discover and fulfill his or her potential.

I push my students to excel and work hard to find creative ways to help a student grasp the meaning of a concept. I am able to teach all aspects of English and ESL, having had many years of experience in both areas. For the past 12 years, I have focused a lot on improving writing, especially academic writing.

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 been an ESL teacher and teacher trainer for over 30 years. I have taught most levels of ESL, but my strength lies in intermediate to advanced students. I worked out of the country in Uruguay as an ESL teacher for 19 years. While I was teaching in Uruguay, I also studied and received two ESL degrees from Trinity College in London. In the United States, I completed my Masters in Education with a concentration in English and ESL.

Upon my return to the States, I have worked as both a high school English and ESL teacher. I am currently working at Housatonic Community College as an ESL instructor.

I love teaching ESL learners and am strong in all the four skill areas.
