About Hali

Hello Students,

My name is Hali Burley. I was born in San Francisco, CA and attended San Francisco State University (BA, Drama) and Oregon State University (MA, Education). I have been teaching English for more than 20 years; my specialty is reading and writing. I have lived and worked in several states including Arizona, California, Hawaii, and Oregon.

I started my teaching career in English as a Second Language. I have a graduate certificate in TESOL from OSU and also, I teach ESL at the local college, here in Eugene. I love working with international students. My other passion is teaching reading and writing. I can help you (or your children) become better readers and improve your grades. I have worked with everyone from second graders to senior citizens - I believe in lifelong learning!

Test preparation and study skills are two of my other favorite subjects to teach; my motto is 'study smarter, not harder!' I've helped students improve their scores on the TOEFL, the IELTS, and the SAT.

In my free time, I enjoy gardening, hiking, and bicycling. I have a small vegetable and flower garden where I like to work outside until it gets dark. I am lucky to live in beautiful Eugene, Oregon. I hope to meet you soon and work with you to improve your academic skills.

Thank you for reading my profile.
Talk to you soon!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

English

I have over 20 years of experience teaching English. Tell me what you need to learn and I will help you accomplish your goals.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught English as a Second Language (ESL) for over 20 years. I have taught students as young as 10 years old and as old as 80 years old. Also, I have a graduate certificate in TESOL from Oregon State University.

Currently I am an ESL instructor at the college in my town, Lane Community College. I have been an ESL instructor at that school since 2004.

I look forward to helping new students improve their English skills.

Grammar

I currently teach English Grammar at the college in my town, Lane Community College. In this course I teach the parts of speech and how to correctly write sentences using accurate punctuation and grammar.

I can help you sound more professional in your written work and also improve your grammar knowledge. Let's work together to improve your basic knowledge of English Grammar.

Proofreading

I am an expert with punctuation and spelling. Let me help you sound better in everything you write.

Reading

I can help you learn to be a better reader. Once I show you what to look for, finding the topic, main idea, and supporting details in a passage will be less difficult.

SAT Reading

I have coached many students in how to pass the SAT. I can not guarantee your results, but I can help you learn how to do your best.

SAT Writing

I have coached students in the specific Writing techniques necessary to pass the SAT writing test. The test requires a student to be able to write a 5 paragraph essay in 30 minutes or less. I can help new students learn how to plan, organize, and write a great essay in very little time.

I look forward to working with new students to improve your SAT Writing skills.

Study Skills

I am currently a study skills instructor at the local college. I help students manage their time more effectively, study smarter not harder, and learn how to stay on task while they are doing homework.

Is getting your kid to do homework a struggle? I can help.

Vocabulary

Reading a newspaper every day is one of the best ways to build your vocabulary. My other suggestion is flashcards. They really help you remember what you study.

Writing

My special area of mastery is teaching writing. I would love to help you improve your writing. Learn how to sound great in written form.
