About Millie

Hello, I'm a former NYC/ NYS Certified ESL Educator with NYC public schools (grades K-5). I've taught in the elementary public school system for 6+ years, and student-taught prior to my career in both high school and elementary for 1 year (combined experience of 7 years). Prior to my education career, I taught in a private bilingual Korean-English daycare for 2 years (ages ranging from 6 months - 2 years old).

I obtained my master of arts degree (M.A.) at NYU, in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages, K-12 & Adults). I graduated with honors from this prestigious program.

Currently, I am pursuing a 2nd master's degree in Speech-Pathology in Queens, NY.

I regularly received the most up-to-date training and professional development on the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), and am familiar with the NYS elementary curriculum for grades K-5 (ReadyGen & GoMath). I am also quite familiar with the NYS ELA and Math Exams as well as the NYS ESL Exam (NYSESLAT, a New York State ESL test from grades K-12). I have also been an official proctor and grader of these state exams as well. I have tutored the NYS ELA exams for grades 3-8, and have tutored test preparation such as the PSAT for grades 6-9.

On the side, I also privately tutor students who have ranged in ages from 5 to 45 in subjects such as ELA, ELA Test Prep, elementary math, Math Test Prep, writing, reading, vocabulary, phonics, ESL and more. I have also taught adults English (ESL) skills, as well as TOEFL test preparation (particularly the writing section) for 2 years.

Most of the subjects covered in tutoring have centered around ESL, English Writing or Test preparation studies. For adults, I have tutored everything in ESL from daily conversational practice & survival English & and NYC information. I have also helped students with graduate college admissions essays and the writing portion of the TOEFL exam. Of the graduate admissions essays I've helped to edit, all three have been accepted into desired prestigious programs such as Yeshiva Law School, George Washington Medical School, and NYU Dental School.

I am also able to tutor only the writing portion of GRE, as I received a perfect score on this section.

My areas of speciality in tutoring are: elementary (all subjects) K-5, ELA and Math Test Prep, NYSESLAT (ESL Assessment Test), writing essays (K-College), Admission Essays (I have helped 2 friends find acceptance into Law School as well as NYU Dental School), basic ESL for adults, as well as conversational skills, and organization.

Prior to education, I worked in Human Resources for 2 years, so I am familiar with interviewing skills, and basic business English.

I can/ have also tutored basic 'survival' English to newcomers in NYC, and have taught lessons on acclimating to NYC Life (culture, language, transportation, etc.)

I'm a native New Yorker, native of Queens, and am conversant in Korean, and possess a very light knowledge of Mandarin-Chinese (after having taken a few courses in both high school and college). I am in the midst of learning beginner Spanish and French.

I look forward to hearing from you and learning together!

(Rates vary - if slightly higher than average, please take into account organization policies as well as master's degree expertise. For adult learners, I only work with females and prefer a public setting or online).

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.

Bible Studies

I personally have studied the Bible since childhood after attending Sunday school and participating in bible studies throughout my entire life. This qualification would be more towards helping non-English speakers better understand the Bible or those enrolled in theology/ religion courses at a basic level.
