Brigham Young University
Hey, there! I'm a sophomore university student taking a break in order to pay for tuition. I'm a Linguistics major with a minor in TESOL (Teaching English to Students of Other Languages). For one year, I volunteered at the BYU English Language Center (ELC), and have helped many international students at the school in their endeavors to learn English. I have also tutored several students for the TOEFL test, and am familiar with the format and the needs of TOEFL students. Although all of my past tutoring has been voluntary, I have a lot of experience and have had success with all of my students. I am fun, quirky, and inventive with my teaching methods.
I am also currently studying Korean, and have studied with many Korean students through language exchanges, and would love to work with any interested native-Korean speakers. However, I am open to all languages and nationalities, and will gladly teach anyone who asks!
As for High School English, I am highly proficient in writing and literature. I received a 34 on the English ACT and a 32 on the Reading ACT. I love literature and writing! I have taken multiple creative writing classes. I was top of my class in English in High School. I would gladly teach anyone who is struggling, and help them appreciate English. :) I promise I won't make it boring! Hey, there!

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 received a 34 on the ACT English section. I can teach strategy and tutor vocabulary and grammar.
I received a 32 on the ACT Reading Section. I can tutor timed test strategies, as well as comprehension.
I was top of my class in English. I can tutor in literature, reading, grammar, vocabulary, and any other English related issues a student may have.
I'm majoring in Linguistics with a minor in TESOL. I have significant experience in working with international English Language students. I have volunteered at the BYU English Language Center for a year, and I have worked with multiple students who are taking English language classes and who are studying for the TOEFL, Michigan, and other English proficiency tests. If needed, I can provide references.
I have taken university courses in English Language and Linguistics, which give me a unique understanding of the mechanics of grammar.
I am most familiar with 18th and 19th century literature. I have studied poetry, essays, novels, and drama. I competed in literature contests, and won many awards for my knowledge of literature. I can tutor students in literature terms, analysis, and style.
I often proofread the essays of fellow students and have received great reviews. I always try to provide helpful feedback and explanations for my changes.
I can tutor students to help them with speed reading, analysis, and basic understanding of themes and main ideas.
As timing is the main challenge of the ACT and SAT, I can help students increase their reading speed and learn how to pick out main ideas and scan.
I have helped many students prepare for the TOEFL Test, particularly the speaking and writing sections. I am familiar with the format. I will help students with speed, linguistics, and proficiency, and practice testing strategies.
I will help students with vocabulary memorization, context reading, and root identification (recognizing word roots to find the definition of a word).
I can help students with writing techniques and styles. Creative writing, essay, and professional writing are all accepted.
