I currently have students from several different countries, all with unique needs.

I have years of experience tutoring a wide variety of populations. At the moment, I am tutoring adults in English as a Second Language. I currently have students from several different countries, all with unique needs. I take a very practical, real-world approach, teaching vocabulary each student needs for his or her particular social and professional situations. I have helped people write and edit resumes, practice oral presentations, and taught vocabulary for parent-teacher school conferences. I especially enjoy helping students improve their pronunciation and intonation and helping them become more confident.

I prefer to work weekdays -- I am available from 9:00 am to about 4:00 pm Mon- Fri. This generally means that I am a better schedule fit for college students and other adult learners. I have also occasionally worked with children in homeschooling programs. I am happy to have a short initial meeting, free of charge, to assess the student's level of knowledge and see if we are a good personality match.

I have been tutoring in ESL for about 5 years, including two years at the Literacy Council of Montgomery County. Depending on the student's skill level, we may start with basic alphabet sounds and letter formation all the way up to advanced reading and writing. I take a very practical approach, emphasizing real-world vocabulary and conversation. I have worked with students to help them understand their children's homework and practice everyday situations such as teacher conferences and medical appointments, and have taught and practiced vocabulary needed for their professions. I have also proofread and edited resumes and cover letters for many of my students. At the initial meeting, I do a thorough assessment of the student's strengths and problem areas in grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation. I pride myself on helping the student feel comfortable during our lessons and increasing their confidence.

Timely and reliable

We've enlisted Karin's help for almost three months now. She has been nothing short of knowledgeable and helpful, in addition to being reliable and generally versatile with the timing of lessons. A very positive experience.
