About Tory

Hi! My name is Tory and I have a MA in Teaching English as a Second Language from Webster University as well as a BA in Romance Languages and Literature (French and Italian) from the University of Chicago. My educational background has given me a solid foundation in pedagogical strategies, lesson planning, writing, and literary analysis. (I am also a grammar nerd.) While I currently teach an ESOL class at a local hospital for adult employees, I spent last summer teaching reading and study skills classes to students of all ages. Due in part to my wide range of interests, I am able to translate my skills to many different disciplines. For example, I completed my MA Practicum in an ESOL class for law students at Washington University. I was able to tailor my grammar lessons to meet the students' needs despite having no previous experience in law, a flexibility which I bring to my lessons as a tutor.

In conclusion, I credit an early love of reading with much of my academic success as well as personal growth, and I am excited to use my passion to help students succeed. I believe in creating an environment in which students feel that their ideas matter in order to help them find their voice through writing and/or developing their English skills. Thank you for your time, and I hope to work with you soon!

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.

English

As I stated above, I have a Master's degree in TESL. I am currently teaching an ESL class at a local hospital for staff who are non-native English speakers. Last summer, I taught reading and study skills to children and adults of all ages in a summer enrichment program.

ESL/ESOL

I have an MA in TESL from Webster University. Along with courses covering teaching methods, I took specialized classes on grammar, pronunciation, and reading. I am currently teaching an ESOL class for housekeepers at Mercy Hospital.

I am also able to bring the perspective of a student of languages to my teaching, as I studied French and Italian for many years. I understand how challenging and rewarding the process of learning a language can be, and I am capable of guiding you through all aspects of the English language.
