I am qualified to teach beginning, intermediate and advanced English, basic and complex grammar, integration of vocabulary, English composition and reading, critical thinking and composition, creative writing and ESL. I have a proven track record of helping students in academic and business context, both to native English speakers and ESL speakers from high school to post graduate levels. My students achieve their learning objectives through highly individualized and personalized instruction that best suits each student's needs. My tutoring method uses latest effective instructional techniques by incorporating digital media, music, objects and photographs into the lesson plans. These materials engage students, reinforce material covered and connect students with their own environment and culture, as well as with other cultures. This method creates a direct, sensory connection between learners and their subjects that results in new levels of interest and attention. Research shows that teaching with multi sensory methods also creates students with higher levels of visual literacy.

Besides obtaining my MAE in ESL in 2010, I researched TOEFL thoroughly to develop the most effective teaching methods for student instruction for iBT. I completely customized a test prep plan to address the student’s specific learning style and goals. I also help student conquer exam stress and give them the self-confidence needed to reach their very best score. Below is the process I use. PHASE ONE: Learn Study and memorize templates, and procedures for each section of the iBT PHASE TWO: Practice Practice up to 5 questions for each section to learn how to answer test questions quickly, clearly and correctly. PHASE THREE: Clean-Up Identify specific difficulties such as pronunciation or subject-verb agreement and improve performance.

Sophie, 1 lesson with Judy

She is a great tutor!

I’m Japanese and I was looking for a tutor who had experience with teaching Japanese and could start from the basics. It was lucky for me to find Judy. Although I had a limited vocabulary and my grammar was poor, she listened to me kindly and patiently so I was able to speak in English without hesitating and being shy. She was also very friendly so I felt like I was talking with my friends and could enjoy learning English with her. She can teach not only English but also American culture and manners well. In addition, she is interested in the foreign countries and respects other cultures. It will be fun to talk about the difference of cultures between American and your home country in her lesson. I definitely recommend her as your tutor.

Shinichi, 44 lessons with Judy

Best tutor I've ever had!!!!

I moved to Chicago from China two years ago. One of the problems that always bothered me was my English speaking. Good communication skills, effective and natural ways to use English are essential to the work and life here. I had a hard time going through these difficulties in the first year until I found Judy as my English language tutor. She is a fantastic teacher and lovely friend as well. I have learned not only the oral speaking skills but also how to communicate naturally. I have been encouraged to use English since the first day we had class together. I feel so glad that I could have Judy as my English teacher. She is always professional, hardworking, and patient with me. Now, I am enjoying talking with people and am happy to get more and more friends here in Chicago.
