About Erin

Hello! I am very passionate about languages and helping people communicate. I am currently an Academic ESL teacher at Philadelphia University. For a year and a half I have been teaching ESL to international students pursuing their Bachelors and Masters degrees. Before that, I worked in Santiago, Chile where, for almost two years, I earned my certification to teach ESL, and utilized this certification to teach ESL publicly and privately. Teaching ESL required that I hone my tutoring skills based on what was best for each student I helped. My jobs also required that I fine-tune my Spanish fluency. The demands of becoming fluent in Spanish illuminated the challenges students face while learning a second language. I am eager to use the language lessons I've learned and developed toward continuing to help students master English.

I received my TEFL/IDELT certificate through Bridge Linguatec but I also have a BA in Spanish and Geography from Rutgers University. While I was in college I also participated in a Summer Study Abroad Program in Salamanca, Spain.

Aside from ESL teaching, my hobbies and interests include cooking, learning new crafts, exploring new cities, reading, watching sports (baseball, football, and soccer), learning about new cultures, and photography.

I am able to tailor our classes to your specific needs, whether you would enjoy conversation classes or classes with more structure.

While I do have a 24 hour cancellation policy, I offer make-up classes.

I look forward to hearing from you and meeting you!

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 taught the English language to a wide range of English language learners.

My classes are 100% English immersion, regardless of the level. I feel this was the best way to learn a language while building up the learner's confidence.

My daily lesson plans include activities that practice various English language skills, such as reading, listening, speaking, and writing, using these skills, I focus on the vocabulary, grammar, and function of English language.

I have been observed by other teachers so that I can be critiqued and continually improve my methods. Similarly, I also enjoy observing other teachers so that I can learn new techniques and gain new ideas for future lessons.
