About Shoshana

I was born in the US and am a native speaker of English. I earned a BA from the University of Virginia and Master's degree from Washington University-St. Louis, Missouri. I am passionate about foreign language and culture and have been a lifelong student of both. I speak conversational Chinese and French and am fluent in Hebrew. I understand very well the challenges of studying a foreign language and living in another country as I studied abroad at the university level in Israel and taught English in Taiwan. I have tutored English to both children and adult learners, taught English as a Second Language, and helped new immigrants learn about American culture.

I would be happy to work with you to help you learn English, to improve your English language skills or to reduce a foreign accent on your English. I am qualified to tutor in a variety of subjects. Instruction and assignments will be tailored to your particular goals and needs. We will use a textbook or written articles and there will be ample opportunity for speaking, reading and writing practice. We will work on exercises together and students will receive regular assignments.

I look forward to working together to improve your English language skills or other subject areas in which you may need assistance.

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.

Hebrew

I am well-qualified to tutor in Hebrew. I speak Hebrew fluently, having studied Hebrew for over ten years in the US. Following that, I studied abroad in Israel at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem where coursework was conducted in Hebrew. I have taught Hebrew school in a classroom setting and tutored many students for Bar Mitzvah on a 1:1 basis, working on Hebrew skills and teaching them to chant prayers and Torah (Hebrew Bible) portions.

She is very patient and professional. I could feel her passion for teaching and I learnt a lot when we worked together. Definitely asking to work with her again next time!
