About Courtney

Hi, my name is Courtney! I am a skilled, experienced, fun, and extremely passionate English language arts and TEFL/ESL teacher with 10 years teaching experience and curricula & course designs for ANY & ALL AREAS OF ENGLISH LEARNING and to meet all of your specific learning needs and goals!

As a dedicated educator, I strive to provide an energetic and engaging learning environment, to adapt my teaching methods based on the individual learning needs of each student, to promote student-teacher communication, and to provide useful feedback. I also believe it's important to provide students with detailed evaluations with corrections specific to areas such as fluency, pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary usage, and word knowledge.

I have experience teaching several types of English and ESL courses including: General English as a Second Language (ESL); Test Preparation (SAT, LAST, TOEIC, iTEP, ESOL, & PTE Academic); ESP or English for Specific Purposes (specific to individual career fields); Business English; Business Writing, Correspondence, & Communications; Adult ESL; Young Learner's ESL, General English language arts K-12 (speaking, reading, writing, & listening skills); Essay Writing; English Literature; English Composition; Professional & Resume Writing; and Technical Writing.

EVERY COURSE IS ADAPTED TO MEET YOUR LEARNING NEEDS, PREFERENCES, & REAL-LIFE ENGLISH APPLICATION.

I have experience teaching in several different learning settings. I have taught in public school classrooms at several grade levels ranging from 2nd to 12th grade, online for a global English language company Ispeakuspeak (ISUS) teaching and interacting with ESL students from over 20 different countries, online for Pearson English's English training platform / program, independently on various e-learning platforms, using Skype for video class sessions, and I have worked in-home as a private academic and test prep tutor.

I have worked with students and learners of all ages, at varying learning levels, and from many locations worldwide (South Korea, China, Japan, Spain, etc.).

My educational qualifications include the study of English and Education at Long Island University (New York State), completing the required exams (LAST, ATS-W) and my New York State Teaching License, earning a master's certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language [TEFL], and participating in several English Literacy Education workshops. I am educationally and professionally qualified, am truly dedicated to providing quality education and helping students to become fluent English Language speakers, reader, and writers!

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have 2 bachelors degrees (4 year college degrees) from Long Island University. A bachelor degree in English and a bachelor degree in Education. I have my NY state teaching license as well as a master certificate in TEFL (teaching English as a foreign language).
