About Teresa

For the past two years I have been a tutor to students who want to be proficient in English as their second language. My husband is an immigrant from Eastern Europe and this has opened many doors for my tutoring experience. I have helped a lot of his friends, people from his community, and people from our church. For example, I worked with a few Serbian families that had recently immigrated to Chicago. The kids were six through eight years old. Twice a week, I worked with them in perfecting their English skills by reading to them and showing them picture books. We would work on vocabulary and spelling as well. Gradually, I challenged them to read more difficult selections and to be able to write summaries about their reading. This was such an enjoyable time for me, I loved getting to know this wonderful family!

I have a Bachelors Degree in Theater from Western Michigan University. This has helped me to be a successful tutor in many ways. It's helped me become a critical thinker and problem solver, and helps me to think quickly on my feet. I also have a degree in Paralegal Studies from Roosevelt University in Chicago. I now am pursuing my English As a Second Language TESOL Certificate from Arizona State University. I will graduate and finish my degree in August 2016.

I am willing to teach you online or meet at a coffee shop or library. I am very excited to meet you and get to work.
