About Erin


Bio

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,...

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.

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.

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.

Very patient

Her speech is very clear, that makes me easier to understand. Erin always gives me examples and more explanation to make sure that I understand. She sends me the material to discuss a couple days before we start the lesson.

So far so good

She is exactly what my eighth grade daughter needed. Thoughtful , creative, thorough and knowledgeable. Erin takes time to figure out and individual plan for each student and then executes. Its early but I am very happy for now

Such a great help

Erin helped my son prepare for the SAT. I cannot thank her enough for all of the help she provided. Each week she challenged my son with new vocabulary words and they worked on grammar as well. My son took the SAT yesterday and said he felt much more comfortable. He completed his essay within the allotted time, which he was unable to complete during his last SAT. He said he whizzed through the vocabulary and grammar section. He felt much more prepared going into this test and feels much more confident after taking it. Erin was the reason for that. Thank you so much Erin for all of your help, we will be forever grateful!

Great Tutor!

We have seen a lot of improvement with Bella's reading, and she loves to go to her sessions with Erin. We can see her confidence in reading getting so much better. I highly recommend Erin to any parent for their child.

Great tutor, easy to communicate with

From the first time I messaged Erin, she instantly called me and made an awesome impression. We right away, settled on a date to meet. She was SO easy to work with, easy to contact, and was so inviting into her home. She made me feel like I knew her forever, which is important when your meeting a new person. We emailed, and she always was so willing to quickly answer my questions. I loved working with Erin and loved how accommodating she was. Thank you Erin!
