About Erika

Driven by curiosity, I have developed a wide spectrum of interests. My main focus, however, lies in adult English as a Second Language (ESL) education. I set high expectation for myself, graduated magna cum laude earning a Master of Arts degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (MAT-TESOL), and working on my education doctorate (Ed.D) with ESL concentration. Curiosity and creativity go hand in hand when learning a second language and I believe every adult is fully capable of learning a second language. That is why I like ESL tutoring where one-on-one instructions can help students sorting out their interest and linguistic needs and to set goals for their future studies. Conversational and academic language development requires all four linguistic skills in speaking, reading, listening, and writing including computer literacy. I am fluent in English and Hungarian and proficient in German.
My time is valuable, and I expect every student to respect that. In case cancellation is necessary, I need 24 hours advance notice, unless it is an emergency situation. Language learning is tedious and needs patience, but everyone is going to progress with adequate goal setting, time management, and regular feedback and assessment on challenging tasks, quizzes, and projects.

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

As I mentioned, I am working on my doctorate to teach ESL that includes language to all subjects, including mathematics. The doctorate program requires me to take statistics classes to be able to conduct research. In middle school you're dealing with basic math, pre-algebra, maybe algebra I, that I am certain I can help you.
