About Victoria


Bio

I am a unique tutor as I not only hold a Master's degree in Education (M.Ed), I am a Certified Professional Life Coach. Coaches help clients plan road maps to reach goals. Together coach and client decide on action steps and the best way to make them happen. As a tutor I employ coaching techniques which help put my students in "action mode" to reach their targets with confidence.

I am a unique tutor as I not only hold a Master's degree in Education (M.Ed), I am a Certified Professional Life Coach. Coaches help clients plan road maps to reach goals. Together coach and client decide on action steps and the best way to make them happen. As a tutor I employ coaching techniques which help put my students in "action mode" to reach their targets with confidence.

Being internationally TESOL/TEFL certified with 15 years of experience my areas of expertise are Conversation, Grammar, Writing (former university ESL/writing instructor), and preparation for the TOEFL exam. I also specialize in Accent Reduction and design special lessons for specific needs.

Having lived and studied outside of the US I am highly attuned to the nuances of intercultural differences. My teaching experience is with individuals from all over the world and I understand the particular issues and challenges of specific ethnic/language populations. My passion has always been communicating with others in order to share knowledge, and to motivate and enhance lives. I love getting people excited and energized about learning. As a Life Coach I strive to empower all of my ESL students towards high achievement.

Great tutor

I was lucky to work with Victoria for the last month, I was preparing for my Toefl test and I needed to focus on the speaking part. Victoria is a clever and a gifted tutor, I learned so much from her notes and advise, she knew exactly what my weaknesses were, and she worked on improving my speaking skills and ability to impress my ideas in less time with less hesitation and errors.

Very good and helpful tutor

Victoria helped in preparation for TOEFL iBT. We are staying quite far from any major city, so it is difficult to find a good tutor for test preparation like TOEFL. Victoria helped me by providing online tutoring. She is very patient and tells many niche tools that can be utilized for increasing the score. She has been very helpful for practicing the "Speaking" section of TOEFL iBT. She also provides enough tests and study material for practicing the subject matter. Though it was online tutoring I never faced any problems in communicating with her. She is always very prompt in answering your queries and always eager to help. Her guidance has been of immense help in TOEFL preparation and in understanding the English language as a whole. Victoria, Thank you very much !!
