About Beth

For the past 10 years, I’ve taught ESL to all levels, but particularly lower levels and IELTS preparation.

In IELTS prep, my experience allows me to show you how to write the two IELTS essays, how to finish the three reading passages and improve your score, as well as how to shine in the listening and speaking sections. Our IELTS classes have been exciting as we pushed each student toward his/her personal best, and celebrated when they made it. I had many favorable comments from my students.

In ESL, I am patient and encourage students to speak as much as possible on their own. Whatever the level, I can help you to make excellent progress.

If you want to know almost anything about grammar, I’ve probably taught it. Plus I do love grammar! I’m also available to teach writing, reading, speaking to elementary school students. I look forward to finding from you what you want to learn!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 taught many different classes during the 10 years I taught at Inlingua Inc. I often taught IELTS, and for a year or two was the only IELTS teacher available.

During the most recent years at Inlingua, I taught IELTS more than any other class. Everyone had their band goal, and we were excited to see so many reach their goal.

I guess I would say that improving students' writing was my strength. IELTS writing is not really the same as writing taught in most writing courses. IELTS Reading was usually the hardest though, with many different techniques to complete the test in time.

Is it bragging to say that one student who had taken several IELTS classes from different teachers said he learned the most from me?

Excellent teacher!

I'm a Japanese woman who is not native English speaker. Ms. Beth has many years of ESL experience, so if you need ESL, she is the perfect teacher. The class start from small talk and she fixes my pronunciation, grammar and etc while we are talking. Her grammar lesson is incredible. She uses her own text, so you don't need to buy the text. She Has very soft voice and she is very lovely woman, s
