Bio

Hi, I'm Lenore! I graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor's degree in Political Science. I've been teaching since I was 16 (when I began my career as an Assistant Teacher at a Sunday school), and have always enjoyed working one-on-one to help people learn.

When creating my lesson plans, I like to use real-world examples. I'll often begin a tutoring session by reviewing song lyrics, newspaper articles, or book excerpts that are relevant to both the student's life and the subject matter. I...

Hi, I'm Lenore! I graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor's degree in Political Science. I've been teaching since I was 16 (when I began my career as an Assistant Teacher at a Sunday school), and have always enjoyed working one-on-one to help people learn.

When creating my lesson plans, I like to use real-world examples. I'll often begin a tutoring session by reviewing song lyrics, newspaper articles, or book excerpts that are relevant to both the student's life and the subject matter. I use this as a jumping-off point to teach the subject in more detail, and then we'll review with worksheets or a quiz. When applicable, I also like to introduce new study methods that I find particularly useful.

My experience in teaching ESOL varies quite a bit—I’ve taught different levels, with different class sizes. I began tutoring ESOL in college, when a classmate from Korea asked me to help her with her English literature homework. For two semesters, I helped her parse texts and write multi-page essays. After college, I taught 1 basic ESOL class of 8-12 adult students at a local nonprofit in NYC. When they entered the class, they were total beginners, but by the end of the class, most of them could introduce themselves and have basic conversations about everyday activities. I also spent one semester as a full-time ESOL teacher for a private elementary school in China. Since these classes were for very young children, I used games and songs to teach them basic English vocabulary and grammar.

I've been tutoring Spanish, one-on-one, for a year. I worked with one high school student to help her improve her test grades, which she did—her average in the class went up by a full letter grade after working with me for several months. I worked with two other students, individually, to help them improve their conversational skills (both had jobs with Spanish-speaking clients). After working with me, one-on-one for about 2-3 months, both reported that they felt more confident in their speaking skills, and had an easier time communicating in Spanish.
I am happy to answer any questions you might have about my experience or my methods. Please feel free to contact me to learn more or schedule a lesson!
