About Lana

My grandfather was a mathematics professor. From him, I inherited a passion for learning and an intense desire to teach what I have learned. I love teaching English; I learn something new every day!

I have worked in various segments of the education field in para-professional capacities, but have been teaching English as a second language at Parkway Adult Education for three years, now.

In 2013, I tutored Deaf students from Mexico in English. Over the summer of 2015, I tutored three Korean children in English. And, of course, I work full-time during the school year, teaching English to adults from around the world.

How can I help you improve your English skills?

For the past three years, I've been teaching ESL for Parkway Area Adult Education and Literacy. I teach both beginning and advanced classes.

Whether you need help with reading, writing, speaking, or listening, I'd love to help you improve your English skills!

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.

English

I spend much of my time outside of class researching concepts in English, so that I will be better able to explain them to my students. I am also a voracious reader and have helped literature students improve their grades.

ESL/ESOL

This school year, 2015-16, is my third teaching ESL. I currently teach three ESL classes, one advanced and two beginning. I regularly create lessons to improve my students' vocabularies, as well as their writing, speaking, and listening skills.

Grammar

Grammar is a large part of what I do in my full-time job as an ESL teacher. English grammar is complicated, but not impossible - we will conquer it together!
