Bio

I have always been fascinated by language and communication, and I became a teacher/tutor so that I could help students learn to speak and write in ways that that are specifically tailored to their communication needs. I have ten years' experience as a teacher and a one-on-one tutor. My background includes a master's degree in linguistics and a certificate in teaching English as a Second Language (ESL)

I have always been fascinated by language and communication, and I became a teacher/tutor so that I could help students learn to speak and write in ways that that are specifically tailored to their communication needs. I have ten years' experience as a teacher and a one-on-one tutor. My background includes a master's degree in linguistics and a certificate in teaching English as a Second Language (ESL)

I specialize in two areas: 1. Teaching and tutoring ESL for students with varied language backgrounds and with English levels ranging from advanced beginner through near-fluency. 2. Academic test preparation. I am particularly interesting in helping students build their skills in writing essays for the ACT, SAT, GRE, and TOEFL. I have extensive experience with reading and scoring essays on standardized tests, so I can give students clear directions on how to write their own successful essays.

I approach each student by carefully assessing his or her individual needs. I ask questions to determine each student's level of ability and to find out what he or she is most interested in learning. I design lessons and tutoring sessions that will help students set and achieve their goals.

I love to help students understand how language works and how they can use it for successful communication. I view tutoring as a collaborative experience between the instructor and the pupil.

I'm looking forward to meeting and working with new students.
