I completed my MA in TESOL from Eastern Michigan University last year! I have experience teaching and tutoring English to students of all ages! I started in the TESOL field about 4 years ago when I completed the CELTA program in Belfast, Northern Ireland in the fall of 2013. This was an intensive training course that involved practical teaching experience working with adults from many different cultural backgrounds. Following the program, I gained extensive teaching experience in a variety of subjects while substituting in various elementary, middle, and high schools in Michigan!

In the fall of 2014, I started the MA TESOL program and had an incredible amount of opportunity to get experience in the field. I spent three weeks in Beijing, China teaching an English summer course for second graders, I spent four months in the Czech Republic teaching English in primary schools, and I was a graduate assistant in Eastern's International Student Resource Center and tutored university students in the ESL program. Additionally, I have almost two years of experience tutoring with a local non-profit organization that provides free ESL and basic literacy education to adults! Currently, I am employed full-time with this non-profit and not only do I regularly tutor and work with ESL students, but I also train ESL tutors.

I am passionate about English education and I'd love you help you meet your ESL goals!

Please feel free to contact me and we'll set up a convenient time and location to meet! I can be very flexible, but typically I am available in the evenings or on weekends!

IELTS

I have CELTA certification as well as an MA in TESOL. I have three years of experience in the TESOL field. I was a graduate assistant at my university's international student resource center and helped many students study for the test. I also did a couple workshops on IELTS while there as well. I've also co-presented at the Electronic Village at the International TESOL conference in Toronto in 2015.

Writing

I tutored academic writing at Eastern Michigan University while completing my Master's. Though I worked with international students, the writing strategies and techniques I used with students cross over to general academic writing. Because I tutored writing in an official capacity as a graduate assistant, I received extensive training on tutoring writing.
