As a teacher and tutor, I strive for learning to be student-focus, hands-on, and practical. I enjoy working with adult students who are motivated to increase their knowledge, confidence, and ability to use English in the US. I have previous experience with high school students studying math and English.
I specialize in teaching students who are non-native English speakers in all language skills (speaking, reading, writing, listening, and grammar) and test-prep for TOEFL and IELTS.
I graduated from Azusa Pacific University with a MA in TESOL and Taylor University with a BA in International Studies. I love meeting and working with people from all over the world!

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.
I previously worked as an IELTS Invigilator and Clerical Marker. Through those positions, I proctored and scored the IELTS test. This experience showed me parts of the IELTS test day that a prep book cannot. I offer test-day tips and tricks to reduce test anxiety and better prepare the student for the experience of IELTS. I hold a MA in TESOL and have experience with one-on-one tutoring ESL and test prep.
