Teaching is my passion. I believe learning English can be fun and informational. You will have the ability to use my vast work experience as a basis for your conversations and vocabulary. You will learn to believe in yourself and your capabilities as we explore the learning process. Furthermore, I can help increase your overall test scores with methods I have taught my students over the past six years. Your progress will depend on your determination to learn the material and I will provide the inspiration. We can have fun together while learning a serious subject. The subjects we can cover are endless and your grammar and vocabulary will be woven effortlessly into the lessons.
I have taught ESL English to beginners successfully for six years with ELS Language Centers. My beginners ranged in age from teenagers to over 70 years old. Everyone has a success story! Also, I have completed many volunteer hours with very young children and am experienced working with all age groups.

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.
I taught ESOL for six years to students who came from different countries with different scripts. I used both a group and one on one approach to train each student how to write the alphabet and associate the letters with words. I emphasized good technique to later assist them on the IELTS test. Also, there are handwriting practice books.
I was an assistant IELTS Administrator, invigilator and test grader. I am familiar with the test methodology and focus. I would guide the student in specific test taking skills and practice tests.
As a six year veteran teacher I have advised innumerable students on how to improve their study and test taking skills. My methods get results and my class test results improved by 20%!
