I enjoy helping students achieve their goals and I look forward to helping you.

What I love most about teaching is helping the student understand something they struggle with. I love to see the light bulb glow for my students and really enjoy teaching a class as well as giving individualized help. I would love to continue that feeling into a tutoring setting. I know that many students can benefit from individualized attention and am looking forward to working with you or your child.

I feel that I possess the ability to help a student gain success in English whether it be as a second language, or as the typical English student. I am patient, caring, detail-oriented and just love to teach! I have helped children in a classroom setting, as well as helping students one-on-one.

I would love to be your tutor and to help you gain the confidence and success that I know you can achieve. I will always be available with quick responses and open to anything the students or parents would need to further help the student. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or to schedule a session.

ESL/ESOL

I have been an ESL teacher online for 2 years. I have enjoyed teaching English as a second language to children in China and I would like to extend that to children locally. I work primarily with children just starting to learn English, but can also continue as they grow in the English language. My students so far have been ages 5-12. Most of my students are regulars, which mean that I am their primary ESL teacher. I believe this is important to maintain consistency. Many of these students have had no or limited experience with English. I have many certifications through VIPKID, which is the platform on which I currently teach. I look forward to helping you learn English as your second language.

Grammar

I have been a substitute teacher in grades k-12 for 15 years. I have taught many different areas and also many different levels of students. I also taught preschool for 7 years and am currently a pre-K teacher. I have tutored students from home and also offered extra help to students during my free periods. I would love to help you achieve your goals. I am a patient and understanding teacher who strives to bring the best out of my students. My approach is very hands on and I make sure that you as a student understand why we are responding or answering in the way that we do. I want you to be able to carry that lesson forward to your next class, lesson, or assignment. Understanding the grammar behind the writing is very important to forming your own answers to question, essays and the like. I look forward to helping you.
