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.

Anthropology

I received a BA in Cultural Anthropology from Barnard College, Columbia University. My MA degree is in English and transnational literature. Anthropology is a broad field so tutoring methods depend on the student's individual needs, but I can coach on all of the major anthropological paradigms and theorists.

ESL/ESOL

I am an experienced and patient ESL tutor and native English speaker who enjoys teaching all levels of English, from beginning to graduate school level.

Most often I focus my lessons on helping you acquire and improve all four language skills: reading, writing, speaking and listening. However, my approach is student-centered and based on YOUR language goals. If you only need support in one or two of these areas (like reading and writing), we will focus on those.

During our first meeting, we will talk about your English language goals and I will conduct an assessment to determine your current skill levels in English and the areas in which you need support. We will decide how often and where to meet based on what you want to accomplish.
