About Deanna

Hello! My name is Deanna W. and I am a tutor living in Austin, TX. I have just relocated from South Korea where I worked with both children and adults as an ESL teacher. Before that, I worked for five years as a private tutor for both children and adults. I have a true passion for teaching and I can't wait to become your new tutor! :)

I have taught ESL abroad as well as in the US. I gained experience teaching TOEFL preparation and SAT prep for foreigners. As a tutor, my number one rule is to look at each student as an individual. There is no magic system that works for every person, so I always stay attuned to each person's needs.

I would love to start working with you! Please contact me if you have any questions. I look forward to hearing from 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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I worked as the Head Foreign Teacher for a private elementary school in Seoul, South Korea for one year. As the Head Teacher, I oversaw the curriculum of all children in grades K-8. I worked to do individual assessments on each student and, in some cases, conducted private sessions with those who were struggling. On my normal days, I would teach at least seven different K-8 classes.

Handwriting

As an ESL teacher, I have had the pleasure to work with a variety of different students on their handwriting. I have worked with young learners, here in the U.S., as well as adults and children in South Korea who were just getting used to writing the Roman Alphabet. I try to pay close attention to each of my student's handwriting. I strongly believe that legibility is extremely important.

Phonics

I spent time in South Korea working as an ESL teacher for both children and adults. My most important class that I ended up spending the most time in was Phonics. While working there, I was able to research various different methods and got a good feel for individual instruction. I am used to working with individuals who have a variety of different accents and/or impediments. It is very important to me that they learn this subject well.

Public Speaking

I have had the pleasure of acting as a mentor and educator to numerous public speaking students. When I was a teacher in South Korea, I taught several different Debate classes to middle schoolers. My emphasis was to get the students in front of the classroom and have them state a passionate and well-researched opinion.
