About Rachel

I'm a recent college graduate, currently working as an ESL teacher and planning my graduate studies. I plan on eventually going into Speech-Language Pathology for my masters, and have a bachelors in Linguistics with a focus on speech and language courses. I also was recently CELTA certified, which means I am accredited by Cambridge English Language Assessment to teach English as a foreign language. I speak intermediate college level French and understand a bit of spoken Russian as well, though I'd be happy to work with students from any language background. I have experience tutoring students for different classes, such as French or English Literature from my high school years, although I would like to focus mainly on ESL students at the moment. I have completed 6 hours of observed teaching of college students and adult language learners, with classes ranging from 9-14 people.

Some more info about me is that I initially planned to teach ESL as a way to pay through graduate school, but fell in love with teaching adults while I was getting my CELTA done, and plan on incorporating what I learned into my graduate studies, so that I can work with those who have speech problems as well as those learning English as a new language. A fun fact about me is that I currently have a puppy, so teaching English outside of the US isn't something I can do at the moment, but I'm looking forward to teaching abroad in Korea one day. :)

I am CELTA certified, which means I have taken an intensive course which prepared me to give English language lessons with a functional approach, rather than just listing vocab words and random exercises to complete. I have learned a methodology for teaching, as well as had observed practice giving multiple 40 minute lessons to a full classroom. I have worked with multiple levels of adult language learners, and given various types of lessons (Reading, writing, speaking, grammar, etc). I also have a background in linguistics, which can help with pronunciation and phonology.

I have flexible hours and a stable means of transportation. I can work with a college student's schedule and would be happy to try and work with you between classes or after class. I would be happy to make the lessons tailored to a specific goal or language point, or we can do more general lessons to work on any weak areas. Please feel free to reach out to me and we can set up a lesson. :)

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.


I have a BA in Linguistics from Rutgers University, and am CELTA certified as an ESL teacher, which means I have finished an intensive training course in order to learn teaching methodology and give English lessons with trainers observing me and giving feedback. I've given different types of language lessons, including speaking, writing, reading, and grammar.
