About Ilse


Bio

Hi! I graduated with a MA in TESOL (Teacher English to Speakers of Other Languages) from Hamline this last winter, and I have a graduate-level certificate in TEFL. I graduated from University of Wisconsin Madison in 2009 as an English and lit major. I have 4 years experience teaching abroad (Uganda and Laos) where I worked with elementary and high school students. While in Laos, I taught 4th grade for one year and 5th grade for one year, and I also taught academic writing to young adults....

Hi! I graduated with a MA in TESOL (Teacher English to Speakers of Other Languages) from Hamline this last winter, and I have a graduate-level certificate in TEFL. I graduated from University of Wisconsin Madison in 2009 as an English and lit major. I have 4 years experience teaching abroad (Uganda and Laos) where I worked with elementary and high school students. While in Laos, I taught 4th grade for one year and 5th grade for one year, and I also taught academic writing to young adults. Although much of my experience has been with children as a teacher and tutor, my more current professional and academic focus is teaching adults. I currently coordinate an evening school for adult immigrants and refugees where I support teachers, help with curriculum writing, and test students. My specialties are in academic English (writing, reading, speaking, comprehension), although I feel comfortable working with adult English language learners at all levels and needs.

I love tutoring as you meet the student where they are. As a teacher, I usually favor a highly-interactive, communicative approach, but as a tutor, I understand that not all students are the same, and I'm happy to do the research and make the time to craft excellent lesson plans that match the needs.

I'm excited to meet students, whether children or adults! My available hours currently are weekday mornings, up until 12pm or so, and sometimes weekends. Please reach out to me if you have any questions!

Great Tutor

Ilse was very helpful and patient with me. She helped me with narrowing down my topic and coming up with research questions.
