About Erin

Greetings! I have been teaching English as a Second Language for nine years, and have taught all sorts of English classes. I have also taught acting and speech in the past. I love to see a student's eyes light up when they understand a topic that is challenging for them.

I am also a published author. So far, I have received royalties for two novels; published poetry, and I have also been published in several publications, including scholarly journals.

I also won a teaching award in 2012, due to my level of commitment and willingness to try innovative ideas. I promise to bring open-mindedness and a positive outlook to help my students learn so that they can reach their goals.

My tutoring methods are very individualized. No two students are the same, which is why they need a tutor! First I see what the learner needs, then I assess and discuss with them how they learn best. If they learn best with the use of visual cues, we do lots of charts and pictures. For instance, I am not averse to taking the student outside whenever possible to apply their newly acquired learning. This allows them to use what they have learned. That allows for the brain cells to develop stronger memories regarding the topic.

I have also received a Part-time instructor certification and have taken numerous ESL workshops, even presenting at two conferences.

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.

IELTS

I have been working in this field for over ten years. The first two years involved supporting ESL students one-on-one in a laboratory setting and with distance education programs, and for the past eight I have been teaching as a classroom instructor/tutor.
I have also attended numerous conferences to continuously learn about how to best serve this population. These learners need a well-rounded approach in which patience is very important.

Public Speaking

I currently teach a type of speech class to international students in which they must present speeches three times during the semester. I coach them on how to overcome fear, diction, poise, and how to develop an interesting and informative presentation. I have also received "A" grades in my own public speaking and oral communication classes while in college.
