Concordia University, Montreal Canada (English Literature)
My teaching experience encompasses work in the USA and Canada. I taught ESL to adults for 3 years in Montreal, and moved on to teach English Language Arts for 13 years to middle school students in Brooklyn, NY. I have exposure to two independent cultural backgrounds. English is my primary language, but I am fluent in French. These varied inputs allow me to broaden the horizons of my students.
What I love about teaching and tutoring is that no two students are the same. Each individual brings to the classroom, for our tutoring session, something unique. I strongly believe that education goes beyond the classroom and so I enjoy sharing aspects of my cultural background with my students. When I taught in Montreal, I often held conversation classes in local restaurants, immersion in your subject matter is crucial in how much you retain, especially with languages. I think it is important to have clear expectations for and also from your students, but I also feel that learning should be fun.
I have a BA in English Literature, a certificate in TESOL, and an MA in Supervision and Leadership. My range of teaching spans from a class of 32 middle schoolers, to one on one tutoring sessions with both adults as well as children.
Given my 15 plus years as an educator, I am confident that I can adapt to the various student learning styles.I am able to prepare creative lessons that will keep your interest throughout the session. I look forward to helping you reach your personal goal. My teaching experience encompasses work in the USA and Canada.

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.
