Ball State University (Journalism)
I have more than 7 years of experience teaching English as a second / foreign language to students from other countries as well as tutoring here in the USA. I lived and worked in Asia, helping children, teens and adults improve their English language abilities in order to prepare for exams, study abroad or simply gain an advantage over their peers. This time abroad helped me learn how to break through the barriers of culture and language in order to reach a variety of people.
My students would describe me as fun, interesting and flexible. I believe in taking core principles of education and blending them with practical use so that students learn to apply them effectively and naturally. Trough my unique methods, my students learn confidence and the ability to work through fears and nervousness in order to succeed. I pride myself on the relationships I have built with my students abroad, and hope to do the same here at home.
I like to use unique teaching methods to deliver information to students. I use such methods as rhythm and voice inflection to teach not only textbook English, but also importance of implied meaning. Language can be a beautiful thing if understood and wielded correctly. This is what I do my best to teach.

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.
I have personally taken the IELTS test and achieved an overall band score of 8.5.
I taught IELTS preparation for almost two years in Vietnam. Some of my students were able to qualify for a labor export program in Australia and one student scored 8.0 overall and is now studying in Canada.
