I earned a MA in TESOL from the University of Minnesota and previous to that I earned a BA in Cultural Studies with minors in Spanish and Anthropology. I've been teaching college-level ESL classes for 7 years, during which time I've gained extensive experience teaching all aspects of college-level ESL, including listening, speaking, reading, writing, grammar, and academic skills, as well as topics-based courses such as American Culture. I am comfortable and confident working with all ESL learners, from beginners, all the way up to those with near-native-like proficiency. I have taught and tutored in a variety of settings including small groups, large classes, one-on-one, and remote (online).

My greatest strength as a teacher is my ability to develop personal connections with my students, to discover their needs and goals, and to tailor an individualized learning plan to help them attain those goals. I take the time to really get to know each student personally, and I excel at making the kinds of personal connections that facilitate effective learner. I achieve this through humor, transparency, and dedication, and by being willing and able to make adjustments in order to suit the needs of my students. I particularly enjoy helping students prepare for the TOEFL, improve their writing and grammar, and develop their voice. I can help you improve your grades, get accepted to an American university, or whatever you need help with!

Please reach out to me to schedule a session, I look froward to working with you!

Study Skills

I’ve been teaching a course called “academic skills” to non-native speaking international college students for about 5 years. From working with international students, who have limited familiarity with the US educational system, I’ve learned what students need to know to be successful. I don’t just t such skills and strategies, I also help students to understand the “why” behind them.

IELTS

I have a Master's Degree in TESOL and 7+ years ESL teaching experience at the college level. I've worked with students preparing for both the TEOFL and the IELTS and am familiar with both tests and how to prepare for them. Being familiar with the format of the test, knowing what the questions will look like, reviewing what you already know, and "hacking" the test by using guessing and others strategies effectively are some of the IELTS prep topics I can help you with.
Literature,

Literature

I have worked with non-native English speakers for over 8 years. I’ve taught everything from grammar to study skills to pronunciation, but I’ve particularly enjoyed teaching literature. Helping students understand what they’re reading and reflect on it, helping them develop an appreciation of the work, and helping them to recognize tricky elements like figurative language is rewarding for me and for my students. Having worked with non-native speakers, I know how to approach the study of literature in a way that anyone can understand.
