About Anna

I have been an ESL/EFL teacher for 8 years. I've taught all ages and all levels, both abroad and in the USA. I worked at a language school in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, a private elementary school in Istanbul, Turkey, and an academic language program in St. Paul, Minnesota, USA. I have also tutored small groups of pre-literate East African students. At a university level, I've taught at Worcester State University, the University of Hartford, and I currently teach at the University of Connecticut. In addition, I also teach a TEFL certification course for Americans who want to teach English in foreign countries.

I completed my Master's in ESL back in 2014. I have TEFL and TESL certification as well, and my required and elective coursework included classes in linguistics, pronunciation, lesson planning, classroom management, English grammar, using technology to enhance the learning experience, theories of second language acquisition, and classroom activities.

I would love to help you improve any aspect of your English!

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.

Grammar

I've taught ESL for years and a big part of that is grammar. I have many texts on hand about grammar rules and practice, as well as games and activities.

Proofreading

I've edited many student essays, as well as helped friends proofread Master's theses.

Spelling

As an ESL teacher, I spend a lot of time with students working on English spelling. I have many activities and games to help with spelling rules.

TOEFL

I have worked one-on-one with ESL students before on TOEFL and IELTS test prep, as well as proctored and graded the institutional paper-based test. I have a few TOEFL test-prep books I pull material from, as well as many websites.
