About Elizabeth

I am an experienced tutor with a CELTA certificate (a credential issued by Cambridge University for teaching English to adults). I graduated from the University of Illinois with a degree in Spanish and a minor in Linguistics. I have over 7 months' experience tutoring ESL in a volunteer capacity with a nonprofit organization in Chicago. During college, I spent a semester in Spain to improve my knowledge of the Spanish language and culture.

I have always enjoyed learning languages because of all the new experiences and opportunities they give you; I love teaching because it allows me to use my knowledge and experience to help others get the same benefits. Because I know what it's like learning a new language, I am a very patient teacher and I know how to set an appropriate pace and workload to maximize learning.

My goal when tutoring is to provide an effective and engaging lesson for the student. In general language lessons I teach the various language skills (reading, writing, listening, speaking, grammar, vocab, etc.) in a context that is interesting and relevant to the student. In all my lessons, I strive to provide instruction that is catered to each student's individual needs and learning style.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

ESL/ESOL

I am CELTA certified (a 120-hour certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language issued by Cambridge University). I have taught for 6 hours observed and assessed by a Cambridge-certified instructor, and I have over 7 months of experience tutoring English in a volunteer capacity. In addition to this, I have a minor in Linguistics, which gives me an in-depth knowledge of how the English language works.

Spanish

I have an undergraduate degree in Spanish (University of Illinois, 2012). I am proficient in the language and am familiar with many important pieces of Spanish literature from Spain and Latin America, having read, analyzed, and in some cases translated them during the course of my studies. My educational background makes me well-suited to tutor students taking high school or college-level classes.
