Bio

Dear Student,

My name is Trang, dubbed by some as teacher extraordinaire, and I would love to help you succeed!

My mother was a teacher for 25 years, so I inherited a love of teaching and learning from her. It is extremely rewarding for me to see a student master a concept or skill we have been working on. I have been tutoring others, ever since I was a teenager, whether it was my mother's students in our community's Vietnamese language classes or my fellow students after hours in high...

Dear Student,

My name is Trang, dubbed by some as teacher extraordinaire, and I would love to help you succeed!

My mother was a teacher for 25 years, so I inherited a love of teaching and learning from her. It is extremely rewarding for me to see a student master a concept or skill we have been working on. I have been tutoring others, ever since I was a teenager, whether it was my mother's students in our community's Vietnamese language classes or my fellow students after hours in high school here in the US. As an adult, I have been professionally training students of all ages and all backgrounds the wonderful and practical language of English!

Academically, my background is in science. I am an alumna of the University of Florida and Barry University, where I obtained my undergraduate and graduate degrees in Biology with a focus on Biomedicine, as science and math are some of my strong suits. However, I also love the language arts side of academia. Learning Spanish and Italian are new hobbies of mine, and I enjoy brushing up my Vietnamese whenever I can.

Professionally, I have been certified to teach English language and Test Preparation for over ten years at an accredited and international language school’s centers located in South and Central Florida; I was even named Teacher of the Month unanimously by all the center directors shortly after I started with the company! The top level of students has been my focus for quite a few years now, but I do have vast experience teaching students at all language levels, from beginner to highly advanced. One thing I've learned doing this work is that since I was born in Vietnam and moved to the US with my family when I was just nine years old, I am a proficient native speaker of English, but I also went through the process of learning it for myself. And so, as a language teacher, I am uniquely qualified to help you improve your English!

I specialize in preparing students for the TOEFL and IELTS, which are tests of communicative ability in both comprehension and production of English. In these classes, I focus not only on familiarizing you with test structure and concrete strategies, but on properly diagnosing and improving upon your specific weaknesses in each test section. I have helped so many students meet their targets, including achieving that coveted minimum 26 on the TOEFL Speaking section that most professional programs require, by concentrating not only on better grammar and vocabulary, but also better fluency and accent reduction. We always aim to not just meet, but surpass goal scores.

Throughout the years, I have also successfully taught GMAT, GRE, and SAT preparation to numerous students. Each of these tests has its own unique challenges, but all are designed to help you move onto that next step in your education and careers. I have taken all three of these tests myself, earning scores among the top sixteenth percentile of test takers. I especially enjoy preparing students in the verbal sections of these tests: writing, reading comprehension, critical analysis.

No matter the subject, my goal is to help you understand the material rather than just memorize it. You don't need lecturing; you need guidance for actual practice. In our classes, I will try my best to not only to show you, but to challenge you and enable you so that in the future, you can do it on your own!

While working on my Master's degree in Biomedical Sciences in Miami, Florida in 2007, I began to teach English at a language center based in the area. Since then, I have been nominated as Teacher of the Month by all of the center directors at the time, and have taught learners of all levels and ages. My specialty there has been TOEFL preparation, and more recently the IELTS, which is a similar test of English communicative abilities.

International student-TOEFL

The most thing I like about Trang is that she gives me a lot of resources to improve my language even if I do not asking for it. She is really good and she also tries to cover all my mistakes when I speak to correct them with me, which is a good thing to do because in this case I'm going to speak English good.

Budur, 3 lessons with Trang

Great Tutor!

She helped me study for the GMAT. We went over questions I got wrong and we re worked them. She emphasized strategies for the exam that I am going to use. She is also very friendly and she got so happy when I finally understood something. I would def recommend! :)
