About Inga

I started tutoring already in high school, helping teenage students with English. I later worked as an interpreter, translator, and even high school teacher of English. I grew up in Latvia, and moved to Norway when I was 22. In Norway, I got my MA degree in the English language, with a minor in Russian, and worked in the court system for many years.

Recently, I have decided for a career change and took a professional degree in Migration Studies in Israel, after which I chose not to stay in Norway, but moved to Louisiana to study for my PhD in Sociology. I therefore have a very broad international and professional experience, which makes me a practical and inclusive person. In the context of teaching, I am patient, down-to-earth and care about empowering my students to think independently.

I am currently working as a graduate assistant and statistics lab assistant at LSU. I am tutoring graduate and undergraduate students in statistics, and I work both with Stata and SPSS. I love statistics, and enjoy explaining the theoretical concepts to my students!

I'm a PhD student in Sociology at LSU, with research interests in immigration, public policy and sociology of religion

I have been an English teacher for a number of years. This was, however, over 10 years ago. Since then, I have tutored students privately, and I have excellent experience with both TOEFL and IELTS tests.

I was born in a bilingual family, and spoke Russian, as well as attended a Russian-speaking elementary and high school. I have also an undergraduate minor in Russian from the University of Oslo.

Please contact me if you wish to learn more, or have any questions about my experience, the textbooks that I use, or the ways I can practically help you with. I look forward to hearing from you!

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.

I have been teaching ESL for over 5 years, in the public school sector, in small groups of adults, and privately, as an independent tutor.

IELTS

I have been tutoring students for the IELTS test, and I took it myself in order to apply to a university, with a passing score of 98%. I have a Master's of Philosophy degree in the English language from the University of Oslo.
