About Pamela

I am a professional Test Preparation teacher with over seven years of experience. My specialty is teaching for university and post-graduate entrance exams including SSAT, SAT, ACT, SAT subject exams in English, and Social Studies, GRE, GMAT and non-native English speaker qualifying exams for TOEFL and IELTS. I also provide subject tutoring in English (reading, writing, and grammar)and Social Studies (history, geography, and civics) for high school and university students. I am very proud of my success rate in helping students get into the university programs of their choice!

I recently returned to Portland after teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) and Test Preparation in several foreign countries (Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and Turkey). After a career in public service and private consulting, in 2007 I trained to become a certified TEFL teacher with Oxford Seminars. I am flexible as to days of the week and times available, and am willing to travel within forty miles of Portland. If a student prefers to be tutored in my home, I live in Southwest Portland very near I-5.

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.

IELTS

I am a very experienced IELTS teacher. I taught group classes using MacMillan materials in Astana, Kazakhstan for one year. Then I spent four years in Istanbul, Turkey, teaching IELTS classes and one-to-one students. I also counseled students about applying to prep-schools and universities in the UK, Australia, Canada, and the US. I have also attended several seminars conducted by the British Council about teaching and understanding the grading for the IELTS.
