I am so glad that you are here, seeking help. It is an admirable step to achieving success, and I am honored to be a part of helping you along that process. Let me tell you a little about myself: My name is Grace R., and I am both a tutor and teacher. I hold an M.A. in Applied Linguistics and a B.A. in English linguistics. What does that mean for you? That means I am passionate about language, and about applying that knowledge to help people with real problems. I have a strong background in tutoring in the private and public sector, tutoring for over 6 years in English, TESOL, Spanish, and Linguistics, and even math and science too. Language makes my mind come alive, because I know that my knowledge can be used to help others overcome battles with the language they working with. But knowledge isn't everything. I know that we have great potential to work together because I understand where you and/or your student is coming from. I am the epitome of the "victory story." I have failed classes and repeated them, and still graduated with honors. I have taken tests over and over until I understood the strategy and material well enough to master them. But most of all, I've overcome difficulties and challenges in my life I never thought I could. That puts me in a unique position to help you. What's your story? What can I do to help you overcome your challenges?
Knowledgeable tutor who will meet your needs
I have had multiple sessions with Grace for last several months. As I finished graduate degree in engineering in the U.S., I do not feel particular difficulties in communication within the company I currently work in. But I have always felt a need for improvement in English in advanced level, so I contacted Grace as I thought her background in linguistics could help me achieve my goal. So far, I am very satisfied with the lessons and contents that Grace provide me. She knows what each student needs and retrofits the lesson contents according to what her students are currently lacking. She does not merely teach the same materials to her students, but she prepares the homework and the session just for you. I highly recommend her as a tutor if you want to improve English skill to the next level. Regardless of your current capability in English communication, she will prepare something that suits your needs.Jun, 12 lessons with Grace
I was having troubles finding a linguistics tutor, where all the tutors I found were for grammar or any basic subject. Finally, I found Grace a week before my midterm. Despite the short time, Grace helped me VERY MUCH and stayed with me for long hours to cover the 7 chapters were included. She lives in Riverside and I live in Irvine and she was able to meet me half way so I would not drive too far. Historical Linguistics was my subject, which needed a linguistics background that I lacked. Grace helped me with all that. She helped me with the basics of Phonology, Morphology and Syntax to be able to understand my subject well. Also, she helped me to understand the problems and exceptions of the languages and how to explain them. She is a VERY HELPFUL person and would do anything to help you understand the subject. Grace is a very nice person and very generous with her time. We always meet at the time that is better for me. Before my midterm, Grace got food poisoning, however, she was able to help me and did not let me panic alone. I would never forget that for her. She’s always calm and tries to increase my abilities to think deep in solving the problems. Grace is a VERY patient person. She always tries to calm me down when I’m nervous or worried. She always makes me feel comfortable. You will feel that you’re with a friend not a tutor. Also, She writes outline for each chapter. I'm so grateful. She’s an EXCELLENT tutor I totally recommend her. I would never make it without her and whenever I need any help, I’m going to contact her immediately. I am very lucky for finding such a great person and tutor like Grace. Thank you Grace for everything!!Arwa, 21 lessons with Grace
