About Jesse

Having returned from the International TEFL Academy in Chicago, I am excited to be tutoring ESL learners in my home city of Portland. At the International TEFL Academy, I taught English to people from all over the world who had immigrated to Chicago. I taught large classes and tutored individual students with a wide range of backgrounds, English levels, and reasons for learning English.

I teach English as a Second Language and preparation classes specific to the TOEFL and IELTS tests. I take great care to personalize each lesson to the needs of the student, so be sure to let me know what aspect of your English you would like to work on.

Contact me anytime if you have any questions about what I teach.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have received a Level 5 190 Hour Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language and Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages from the International TEFL Academy in Chicago. I got an A in the course, which included 10 hours of teaching and tutoring ESL students living in Chicago. I am a native English speaker, and possess a wide vocabulary and strong grasp of the rules of grammar.

IELTS

My certification class at the International TEFL Academy included a section on how to prepare students for the IELTS. One of the students I tutored there was primarily interested in passing the IELTS so she could immigrate to Australia to live with her family there, so I tutored her in every section of the test over the course of three ninety minute lessons. I am highly familiar with the structure of the test and have taken a full-length practice version of the test myself (I got a 9) so I can directly understand the experience of my students.

TOEFL

I have received a Level 5 190 Hour Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language and Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages from the International TEFL Academy in Chicago. The course included a section on how to prepare students for the TEOFL. I am familiar with all four sections of the test and the pedagogical methods to get students to pass them.
