About Kendall

As a TESOL certified instructor, my goal is to help support people of all ages as they assimilate into everyday life in an English-speaking country. I take my students' motivations and learning strengths into consideration and tailor my methods accordingly.

I engaged a private tutor for five years to learn Mandarin. I understand the challenges of learning another language and the importance of speaking. Students need to learn a language in a realistic context; being able to use what they learn right away.

I use Mandarin currently on a daily basis to interact with native speakers through my volunteer work activities. I have multiple times been told my pronunciation and speaking skills make my speaking indistinguishable from a native speaker.

I am TESOL certified through Global Language Training's 150 hour Master Class. The program emphasized teaching in context; enabling students to use what they've been taught. I studied effective, teacher-tested methods that engage students of all ages. The course required me to compose my own lesson plan modeled on the training I received.

Learn basic "survival English", improve your pronunciation with one-on-one coaching, practice conversation skills, prepare for a job interview, or select your own specific skill to improve on. Tell me what your learning objectives are and I can help you set reasonable goals to achieve them!

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.

Chinese

From September-December 2009 I took a group Chinese course taught in cooperation with contributing native speakers. We studied as a class the text "Chinese Express" where we learned pronunciation and how to read pinyin. I engaged a native Chinese private tutor (previously a Chinese teacher in China before emigrating to the U.S.) from January 2011- May 2015. I studied Cheng & Tsui's Integrated Chinese Level One Part One, Level One Part Two, and Level Two Part One. I am currently enrolled in a weekly public speaking course where I deliver assignments every 2 months in Mandarin in front of an audience.
