About Francina

I am a certified ESL teacher, TOEFL/IELTS Tutor, U.S.A. Citizenship Instructor and teach Business English at Businesses/Factories

My passion for teaching ESL/TOEFL and IELTS test preparation stems from my passion of traveling. I have lived in three different European countries and have traveled extensively through Western Europe and Central and South America. I have a B.B.A with an emphasis in International Business and earned an International TEFL Teaching Certification in Barcelona, Spain, where I began my career as an ESL teacher for children and adults working in multinational organizations. I later became proficient as tutor in test preparation, such as TOEFL and IELTS. I have also completed graduate work in secondary education.

Because of my success in the business world along with my strong ability to teach ESL, I am a very effective business English teacher, TOEFL/IELTS tutor and prepare students for U.S.A citizenship exam. For TOEFL iBT, I work with students to be proficient in all of the skills for the four sections of the exam. I have a very distinct and valuable teaching method.

The TOEFL exam is the most important test for many ESL students and I am very serious concerning my students’ results. I mostly work with FPGEC (Foreign Pharmacy Graduates) students who need to earn a competitive score based on the certification process. Because this test is essential for many students, I hold my students and myself to very high standards and homework is a required part of test preparation for TOEFL iBT. I also implement a vocabulary section to the student’s customized curriculum because vocabulary building is a very important part whether reading, listening, speaking, or writing is concerned.

I am able to teach private lessons and group classes for individuals and businesses. I have a 24-hour cancellation policy, however, I offer make up classes.

I look forward to hearing from you, answering any questions you may have and assisting you in passing either the TOEFL iBT and IELTS with the scores that you require for your career, which ultimately impacts your future.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I am a certified ESL/ESOL/TEFL teacher and I have taught ESL using the direct method or natural method for 12 years. I was trained in Barcelona, Spain and taught at businesses and schools while I was there and have also taught in other metropolitan cities within the U.S. and South America. Though I teach using the direct method, all of my classes are very organized and appropriate depending on the level of the student. I also tutor for test preparation in TOEFL and IELTS. In addition, I also have completed graduate work in secondary education and use those strategies to help reinforce language learning and fun for all students.

IELTS

The reason I am qualified to tutor for IELTS is because I hold an International TEFL certification and have provided IELTS preparation services and in Barcelona, Spain. I require all of my students to take a pretest in IELTS and I teach according to the skills that need the most mastery. In my experience, the Speaking Test seems to be the most stressful for students, since it entails an oral interview. I have incorporated public speaking methods which helps the student speak with ease and proficiency.

TOEFL

The reason I am qualified to tutor TOEFL iBT is because I hold an International TEFL certification and have been an ESL teacher for 11 years and a successful TOEFL iBT instructor for 3 years. Currently, I teach TOEFL and am in contact with all career fields and higher learning institutions that require the TOEFL scoring. I instruct according to the TOEFL iBT rubric and have a high success rate, especially for the Speaking section, which is challenging for ESL students. In addition, teach all levels and have material that is appropriate for TOEFL iBT.
