About Rachel

I grew up speaking French as a second language (I attended French Immersion schools) and was constantly immersed in other languages and cultures in my ethnically diverse community. I am studying towards a Master’s in TESL. I’ve been teaching since 2007, including ESL (English as a Second Language), French, and Spanish. I graduated in 2007 with a B.A. in Romance Languages (French and Spanish). I taught English in France in 2007, and later taught French at a public middle school from 2009-2011.

I am passionate about teaching languages. I enjoy teaching students one-on-one, because it gives me the opportunity to get to know my students well. My goal in tutoring is to help students gain knowledge and skills in the subject area, as well as gain confidence in being able to use their knowledge and skills in the real world.

I'm currently enrolled in a Master's program, and by May 2016, I will have the M.A. in Teaching English as a Second Language. I have been teaching ESL/ESOL since 2007, to all ages and levels of proficiency. In 2012, I completed the Advanced International TESOL Certificate and then taught English in South Korea from 2012-2014. I am also certified to teach TOEFL and IELTS Preparation courses.

If you want to learn with a qualified teacher who also likes to have fun, I encourage you to contact me as soon as you finish reading this! My flexible schedule and competitive rate are an added bonus!

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

Hello! I have been teaching ESL/ESOL since 2007 and as of May 2016, I will have a Master's in Teaching English as a Second Language. I've taught in the US, Canada, France, South Korea, Puerto Rico, and online. I look forward to making English fun for you!

French

Although most of my teaching experience has been in ESL/ESOL, I attended French immersion schools and am bilingual in English and French. I have a B.A. in Romance Languages (specializing in French and Spanish) and taught French at a public school in Baltimore from 2009-2011.

Grammar

With a B.A. in Romance Languages and currently enrolled in a Master's program in Teaching English as a Second Language, languages and linguistics are my passion. I know grammar very well, and I enjoy helping others understand it.

Proofreading

In addition to my 8 years of ESL/ESOL-teaching experience, I have also worked as a proofreader for the University of Maryland Center for Advanced Study of Language, as a freelance proofreader for graduate students writing their dissertations, and for Dr. Russell Kratz at the InterAmerican University of Puerto Rico. I pride myself on having a thorough attention to detail.
