About Wendy

I have enjoyed teaching and working with students for over twenty years. Most of that time has been spent teaching ESL at universities, instructing students in academic reading, writing, listening and speaking. I have my master's in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of other Languages) from the University of Pennsylvania and have taught at this university as well as St. Joseph's University and Georgia State University. During my time as an instructor, I taught and also assisted students in becoming more comfortable with American culture by introducing them to fascinating and interesting events around the city.

Though I've taken time from university instruction to teach my children at home, I've continued my love for teaching internationals. Whether in a classroom or working with individuals, my students have often commented on how much they love my classes and how I always provide interesting and engaging learning experiences.

For TOEFL preparation, I believe in rigorous, active study. I've taught test preparation in school environments and know what it takes to receive high grades on the exam. I'll take you through actual test material and will practice with you using a variety of methods.

I hope to have a chance to work with you. I've consistently received high ratings as an interesting and effective ESL instructor, and I will actively provide you with the skills needed to do great in both the academic and the social sides of the American experience.

At Georgia State University, I helped to develop reading curriculum and have taught several classes on how instructors can provide an interactive and visual learning experience to students.

Please feel free to contact me. I am available for tutoring in person or online and have flexible hours. My base rate is $35/hr. I hope to hear from you soon!

IELTS

I have 20 years of experience teaching English as a second language. I also have my masters degree in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) from the University of Pennsylvania.
