About Lydia

I have been teaching English as a Second Language for close to 10 years. I have experience teaching all different kinds of learners at many different levels. I have taught children in K-12 and college. I am currently an adjunct professor at Canisius College where I teach a Conversations and Culture class.

My specialty is my own deep curiosity for my students. This curiosity is the basis for my approach to teaching. I enjoy finding out about each of my students and from that knowledge, I am able to teach on a personal level. This way, what my students learn have a deep and personal meaning to them. Research has shown that students who are able to personally relate to subject material have a higher probability of mastering that subject.

Some of the areas that I am particularly good at are: pronunciation, grammar, reading, writing, cultural subjects, and conversation skills.
I will cater my teaching to whatever particular needs you have.

I look forward to working with you!

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 am a New York State certified ESOL teacher for grades K-12. I have worked extensively in this subject area; in a public school, a community college, and now as an adjunct professor at Canisius College. I received my Master's Degree from SUNY at Buffalo and my undergraduate degree from New York University. I have many years of experience in this profession which has been very fulfilling for both my students and me.
