Bachelor Degree (Business Administrat)
University of Phoenix (Other)
Having lived abroad for many years, I now enjoy teaching English to people of other cultures in America. I am an American with years of experience in business administration, non-profit management, public speaking, leadership, and a wide range of English language topics. I have also facilitated test preparation (TOEFL and IELTS).
I completed my certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages in April 2014. I was, most recently, an ESL instructor at EF Atlanta, but they have closed their school. I taught at a vocational college as well. In addition, I tutor with an organization which sends its employees around the world. Finally, I taught English in central Russia at a university while my family (husband, son and I) lived there (for 11 years).
I have language background in French, Spanish and Russian. I love the English language and am proficient in informal styles of speaking and communicating as well as formal and business styles. I am a good tutor one-on-one or in a small group. I am passionate about life and multi-cultural relationships which bring understanding and unity to our society, while helping newcomers adapt and assimilate.

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 recently taught at EF Atlanta (they closed),University Prep students: Writing Fundamentals, Advanced Reading, Grammar, Culture and Communications, and Pronunciation. I had a group of students preparing for IELTS and another for TOEFL. In addition, I tutor (privately) both business people in the Atlanta area (in advanced grammar, email and report writing) as well as people who simply want to improve their English. I have experience teaching English at any level.
I have a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree. I was Certified by Global Leadership College in TESOL (2014). I taught business English in central Russia at university. I have traveled to many countries and am accustomed to speaking English with people of other languages. English was my first major before switching to Business. I am responsible and confident in any situation.
I am currently studying with UGA in the Masters certificate TESOL program.
