About Mervet

My love of learning and helping people has led me to become a teacher of English as a second language. I specialize in helping non-English speaking students successfully master the English language; as well as helping them to acclimate to their new life in the United States. I have developed effective lesson plans, but I do realize that each person learns differently and as such I try to tailor the lessons according to each student's needs. I use different activities to help students develop confidence, perception, vocabulary building, pronunciation practice and grammar.

I specialize in tutoring English as a second language. I try to challenge my students without overwhelming them. I do give homework assignments to reinforce the class work; and I also provide periodic assessments and progress reports. I hold myself to a very high standard and as such I ask for feedback and will never bill for a lesson, where the student was not learning or dissatisfied with the tutoring.

I try to be flexible and accommodating with lesson times. I do have a 24-hr cancellation policy but will work with the student to do make-up lessons.

I understand the importance of having a quiet area to study, so I do provide such an environment in my home, in Broadalbin, New York. However, I will travel to the student's home or a mutually accommodating location, to meet with the student.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve a high level of proficiency in English and in adjusting to life in your new home in the United States.

I am a certified ESL/ ESOL/ TEFL educator. I teach English - Speaking, Listening, Writing, Reading, Comprehension and Grammar.

I am quite familiar and aware of the struggles of non-English speakers trying to cope with learning the language and adapt to the cultural differences. I try to help my students to learn the language as well as the culture of their new environment. I try to assist my students in all aspects of their lives.
I have a flexible schedule and will work with you to find a time that is convenient for both of us. Please feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience.
