I have 10 years teaching experience both overseas and in American higher education systems. I am compassionate, friendly, and thorough. My experience is with English language learning and phonics. Language learning includes listening, speaking, reading, writing, grammar, and pronunciation/spelling. I prefer to meet the student where they are by completing a needs assessment of their language ability first. It is my goal to make learning fun and rewarding by making it applicable and useful. The student will work hard but successfully. My tutoring methods depend on the type of student I'm working with as each person learns differently.

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.
Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages is my passion. I will assess each student's current linguistic progress, request their English language goals, and use activities and textbooks appropriate for their level to meet their goals. We will study grammar, pronunciation, spelling, reading, writing, listening, and speaking. I can also include American culture as needed.
