About Michelle

Hello!

I have over 12 years experience working with domestic and international students. My passion is teaching and I enjoy seeing students achieve their goals. I have a Master's Degree in TESOL, as well as a certification in pronunciation/ accent reduction. I've also had the personal experience in learning a language. This helps me help you to learn a second language. I have domestic and international teaching experience.

My goal for each lesson for you is to prioritize the skills that you feel need to be improved. I work with your needs and concerns and offer my advice and experience as a professional teacher. I make customized lesson plans based on your input, oral and written assessment.

I have a relaxed yet, structured approach to teaching. I believe when a student is relaxed it creates a positive learning environment. I enjoy laughing and like to make lessons fun. I specialize in pronunciation, accent reduction, speaking/conversation skills and TOEFL iBT. I am also open to conduct lessons by Skype.

In my free time I love to travel, meet new people, paint, cook and learn languages.

Please feel free to contact me and ask any questions! I am looking forward to working with 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 hold a Master Degree in TESOL - Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages and a Bachelor Degree in International Affairs and Spanish. I am certified in Accent Reduction/Neutralization by the Compton P-ESL Method and in ESOL K-12 by the state of Florida. I've worked in a university for over 12 years as a professional and English teacher. I have experience working with children and adults. I also have the experience of teaching ESP - Aviation English to airline pilot cadets. I have experience teaching English in the United States and South Korea (Yonsei University).

Public Speaking

I have many years of teaching ESOL. Public speaking skills go hand in hand with ESL, ESOL and Accent Reduction/Neutralization. These skills are taught in the classroom for informal conversation (ex. going to the store, talking to friends etc.) and formal conversation (business presentations, interviews etc.). I am certified in the Compton P-ESL Accent Modification program. Public Speaking skills are also addressed in this certification.

TOEFL

I am well versed in the iBT version.
