About Scott

For over 8 years I've worked with students learning English as a second language. I spent my first year of teaching in Costa Rica where I traveled to different businesses to teach business English skills and I also taught English at a private university. The other 7 years I've had the pleasure of teaching English at a private school in Harvard Square as well as managing and training the teaching staff. I've been lucky to teach wonderful students from all over the world and learn about their cultures. Through my years of experience I've gained patience and a keen interest in helping students find confidence in themselves to learn. I've recognized that learning is a process of developing good habits, finding good resources, and focusing on a desired goal. I also understand that everyone learns differently and I try and adapt my style to help students deal with "learning stresses" in a positive and creative way.

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.

IELTS

I have been tutoring students working on the IELTS and TOEFL exam for the past 6 years. I also have a bachelors degree in English. I currently work as an ESL teacher for a major test prep company who specializes in creating test materials for the TOEFL exam.

Very nice tutor

Scott helped my sister correct her pronunciation and intonation, since English is our second language. My sister likes Scott a lot. He is very experienced in teaching people from other counties English, and knows very well what letters/sounds are difficult for us to pronounce. He is also a very nice and easy-going person.
