About Katie

I specialize in teaching pronunciation and academic writing to English language learners. I can work with you to edit a paper you have written or prepare materials for a presentation. I will help you express your ideas clearly.

I am a native speaker of American English with a PhD in linguistics. My university teaching experience includes English writing, introductory linguistics, phonetics, and phonology. I have also tutored students at a wide variety of levels, and I have worked in a university writing center. I lived in China for four years and taught English during part of my time there. I have over four years of experience teaching ESL to all ages, although I usually work with university students and adults.

I work primarily with university students and adults, although I can also work with young children to practice language through reading and play.

In addition to ESL tutoring, I offer tutoring in linguistics, especially within my specialization of phonetics and phonology. I offer online tutoring for linguistics subjects only.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.
