About Miriam


Bio

As long as I can remember, I have loved languages--my own and others. My first teaching position was as a pronunciation coach at a small private language school. From there, I pursued a post-graduate certificate in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). This led to completing a Master's degree in TESOL.

What fueled my efforts was being in close relationship with learners who paid me the compliment of trusting me with their challenges.

As long as I can remember, I have loved languages--my own and others. My first teaching position was as a pronunciation coach at a small private language school. From there, I pursued a post-graduate certificate in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). This led to completing a Master's degree in TESOL.

What fueled my efforts was being in close relationship with learners who paid me the compliment of trusting me with their challenges.

My final semester, I got to design, build, and teach a course for international graduate student wives. They taught me as much as I taught them. I was hooked on teaching!

What I love about tutoring is being invited into individual minds that have individual landscapes of strengths and challenges, individual perspectives and motivations, and often, hidden talents and abilities that we can find new ways to harness. Sometimes, we can find ways to increase an individual's capacity to learn via relatively minor changes in perspective. Language learning is almost magical that way. But whether we find a hidden circuit or take the traditional route, via hard work and plenty of it, it is always an adventure.

I am fascinated by the inner thought processes of my students. Together, we are on a mission to find the strengths that each learner can employ.

I am looking forward to working with you! Please contact me.

IELTS

I believe I am qualified to tutor IELTS for several reasons. I earned a Master's degree in TESOL at the University of Alabama, where the curriculum included many books and methods drawn from Cambridge, where the IELTS was designed. Both the IELTS and my graduate courses were based on the principle of communicative language learning and use. Also, I have extensive experience tutoring the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) which I believe would transfer to tutoring IELTS.
