About Aya

Hello! My expertise is in reading and writing, foreign languages (Japanese and French), and fine arts. I have over five years of ESL teaching experience and feel comfortable teaching any age group. Please shoot me an email with your specific needs and requests and I am sure we can work out a suitable lesson plan!

In terms of my educational background, I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with BAs in Political Science and Fine Arts. My minors included French literature and Asian Studies. In addition, I have recently graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago with a master's degree in Fine Arts.

As for standardized testing, I did well on the Reading and Writing portions of the SATs. I also scored highly on the French Lit. and English Comp. AP tests.

Thank you!

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.
