About Judy

I have a Masters Degree in teaching English as a Second Language (TESOL) from City University of New York. I understand and love grammar, can help with pronunciation problems and test preparation for many standardized tests. I also have years of experience teaching reading and writing to native English speakers.

My approach is unique and natural and I always try to keep the stress level low for students. I believe in positive reinforcement, but do not hesitate to point out errors when it's appropriate. I train students to find their own mistakes and make their own corrections.

I think teachers need to be loving and supportive to students and to hopefully have a good sense of humor. Building a student's confidence is half the battle in helping someone learn. Facilitating the learning process makes the process easier for students and I have learned how to to explain things clearly. I love working with adults and have great enthusiasm for my job.

Thank you for reading this and good luck to you!

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 a Masters Degree in Teaching English as a Second Language (TESOL) from City University of New York and many years of teaching experience. I understand the way adults learn a second language and my teaching style shows this. I offer private/semi private lessons and create an individualized curriculum for each student. I can help with test preparation, workplace English, academic English or focus on any of the language skills: listening, speaking, reading, writing. I teach in a natural way and always include vocabulary-building and help with pronunciation or grammatical problems that I observe. Students learn a lot of English and have a lot of fun at the same time.

GED

I have helped students from other countries prepare for the GED test. Because I teach students whose native language is not English, I am able to make myself very clear and explain things very simply. I am particularly strong in English grammar, writing and reading.

Grammar

I am a professional teacher of English as a Second Language (ESL). I love grammar, understand it very well and am very good at explaining it to students in a simple way. Grammar is not difficult, but teachers often make it complicated. As a result, students get confused and frustrated. I can help. Grammar is fun!

IELTS

I get private students from Europe who need help preparing for this test to prove English language proficiency. I have helped numerous students, own and am familiar with all the Cambridge materials. I have a Masters Degree in teaching English from City University of New York. I specialize in teaching English as a Second Language.

TOEFL

I administered TOEFL in NY (paper test) for several years. I have taught TOEFL prep to many students and am generally very familiar with the test.

Writing

Although my Masters Degree is in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages), and I am able to teach any of the language skills (listening/speaking/reading/writing), writing is my favorite. I firmly believe it is a process and takes careful reading and rewriting to make a piece "say" what you want it to. So many students have told me that they just can't do it, and I have been very successful at helping them see that they CAN. It can even be an enjoyable experience.
