About Audra

I began my career as a Peace Corps volunteer in Kyrgyzstan in 2009 where I taught English as a Foreign Language in a village school to grades 5-11. I also conducted English clubs, led classes for all ages at the village community center, and organized and facilitated English language discussion clubs at a university. I then moved to Tajikistan where I coached professionals as they prepared for the TOEFL exam in order to advance their careers by studying in the U.S. Today I am a full-time career coach at an online university and a part-time English and TOEFL prep tutor.

My goal is to make the English tutoring or TOEFL prep coaching experience as low-stress as possible by setting achievable goals and creating a fun and warm environment. I want to fully understand your specific goals so we can work together to achieve great results!

If you are a job seeker looking for a career coach, I will partner with you to meet your short and long-term career goals. I will use my knowledge to help you better access that "hidden job market", while at the same time working with you to develop your resume writing and interview skills so that the next time you wish to make a career move, you won't need a coach any longer!

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.

I am particularly experienced working with job seekers in the Information Technology field.
