About Kathleen

For 15 years I have been helping adult students prepare for the TOEFL exam and learn English as a second or third language. I have been successful because of my having to learn three other languages throughout my life. In college I participated in two study abroad programs - one in Spain for six months and another in France for a year. A few years later I found myself living in Brazil and had to learn Portuguese. I lived there for almost 20 years. In the process of learning to communicate in these languages I have learned techniques that help my students to learn English. My students work hard to learn English but we also have fun in the process. I like to ask my students some real life opinion questions so they have to formulate impromptu answers. I enjoy it when they have questions about something they have heard or read and did not quite understand.

In the TOEFL preparation classes my adult students learn how to organize their answers for the Speaking part so that they are relaxed and answer the questions fluently and completely. In the Reading they learn how t find the answers they need as quickly as possible. In the Writing we review various types of academic essays - how to organize them and write them. Throughout the preparation we review commonly used phrases and "trick" answers that might confuse them.

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.

English

I was born, raised, and educated in the US. I have very good writing skills and have passed these skills on to my upper level English students and my TOEFL students.

ESL/ESOL

Over the years, I have learned to read, write, and speak in three foreign languages. In learning these languages I have learned techniques that have helped my students not only to learn English, but to also have good pronunciation.
