About Olivia

I have been teaching for the past four years. I originally started out as a substitute teacher and then made my in long term substitute teaching. For 6 months I was working in an elementary school as an teacher assistant and then I was an paraprofessional in a middle school.

Once I decided to go back to school to receive my master's I transferred into the field of teaching English as a second language. I currently teach at an university to adults who want to acquire the English language.

I have been tutoring since I began teaching and I have enjoyed it very much. I have tutored all different ages and a variety of subjects. I love tutoring because I enjoy the one on one experience and the ability to help students comprehend what they are trying to learn. I have noticed many times that students just need that small amount of personal attention to help them succeed in school.

After receiving my undergraduate degree, I received my TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language Certificate). I then went on to receive my Master's in Applied Linguistics with a focus on English as a second language. I have taught in an elementary and middle school. For the past two years I have worked in adult education for ESL and I currently work at an university teaching ESL.

I studied and majored in history as an undergraduate. It is something that I have always enjoyed learning and continue to do so even out of school.
