About Elizabeth

My name is Liz and I have about 3 years of experience teaching English in various settings. I currently teach ESOL to adults in Rockville, MD at a non-profit. Before October 2015, I was teaching English in southern Thailand for 2 years working with toddlers and elementary aged students. I have also taught abroad in Rwanda, Haiti, and Peru. I have my TEFL Certification and am working towards obtaining my Maryland Teaching Certificate in 2016.

My tutoring style is geared to the student. Depending on the student's preferred learning style, I cater to you in order to teach based on what you want to learn and what is best for you. Typically, I start lessons with a warm up activity, whether it is a game or puzzle, to get you thinking about the topic to be learned that day. Then, I review new vocabulary words and move into a grammar activity. I like to cover speaking, listening, reading, and writing in each tutoring session in order to get a well rounded English practice. A lot of my students do not speak English outside of class time so that is why I focus on all things. However, whatever you want to practice, I can focus on that for you.

I graduated from Penn State University in 2013 with a degree in Global Studies and a minor in Spanish. I have had many history, English, politics, and communications classes throughout my undergraduate career. I have worked with many different types of students of all ages.

I am available Monday through Thursday evenings after 7pm. Also, anytime on Fridays through Sunday.
