About Hollie

I am an English tutor with extensive experience in ESL, grammar, vocabulary, public speaking and proofreading. In my over 20 years as a tutor, both overseas and here in the US, I have worked with students of all ages and levels, from recent immigrants just beginning their English language journey to fluent corporate professionals working to reduce accents. I have also worked with students from many different cultures and I am sensitive to cultural and learning style differences. Additionally, I have working knowledge of both Spanish and Mandarin Chinese.
I believe that learning is best achieved when instruction is interesting and interactive. I am patient, caring and truly want my students to succeed. I structure tutoring sessions to best maximize the time we have together and to meet the specific needs of every student.

I am passionate about language and have been an English/ESL tutor for over 20 years. I have also coached corporate level public speaking for major global organizations and have worked as a professional proofreader.

I pride myself in working hard for my students. I am dedicated, professional, personable and caring. I truly want my students to be the best that they can be.

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.

French Horn

I studied French horn with renowned horn player, Louis Stout, at the University of Michigan. I then went on to play with various orchestras including the Broward Symphony, the Hallandale Pops Orchestra and the Austin Civic Orchestra. I have taught horn lessons to middle school and high school students on and off for years.
