About Courtney

Hi! My name is Courtney. I love languages and genuinely enjoy sharing my knowledge of languages with others. I am very passionate about helping others obtain the resources they need to succeed.

I have a BA in International Economics & Cultural Affairs with a focus in Latin America and the Spanish language. I have tutored children and adults in both ESL and Spanish. I have experience working with students who have no knowledge of the language we are learning. I start with the basics and then I like to gear the lessons towards the topic matter that interests the student most! Keeping students excited about what they are learning enhances their learning experience. I like to teach using examples from media such as television, movies and popular music. I believe the easiest way to learn a language is to practice and ask questions. I am here to work with students as they work to improve accent, comprehension and conversation flow among other things all while growing their interest in the language.

I look forward to working with you!

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.

ESL/ESOL

I've been teaching English as a New Language for 7 years now. I hold a TESOL Certificate, an Adult Education Certificate issued by the State of Missouri, and a BA in International Economics & Cultural Affairs.
I've worked with students as young as 4 all the way up to adults in their 80s. These students come from many different language backgrounds and levels of proficiency. I design lessons targeted to students' needs and interests to ensure the information is relevant.
I work with students online and in person to improve in areas including: writing, speaking, listening and speaking.
