HyunSeo, 39 lessons with Beth Anne
I'm Beth Anne. I was born in Arizona and have lived and travelled all over the United States. I've also visited other countries including Mexico, Guatemala, and Japan.
I have a Master's degree and teaching certificate in TESOL and a Linguistics degree from Brigham Young University.
I've been teaching and tutoring American English for over 10 years.
I began tutoring during my first year at Brigham Young University when a Korean student asked me to help with her Master's thesis. Since then I've taught and tutored hundreds of students from all over the world in universities, one-on-one, and online.
I teach all ages of students, I've taught children as young as 4 years old up to adults nearing 100.
I've taught in person in Japan, at Brigham Young University, and at Utah Valley University. I've tutored online to Hong Kong and Korea, and I've been the manager of an online English teaching company. I love teaching. My students say they enjoy my lessons because they can understand me so well and they like my fun personality.
I offer 4 kinds of lessons, the recommended length for each is 1 hour.
First, I offer conversation lessons to improve your speaking skills. During these lessons either you would choose the subjects you want to talk about, or I would choose topics and adjust them to your level. These lessons would usually include idioms and slang to help you communicate well in a variety of English speaking situations.
Second, I offer pronunciation lessons. During these lessons, we would focus on helping you understand and be understood in American English the first time so that you and others don't have to keep asking each other to repeat yourselves.
Third, I offer grammar lessons. During these lessons, we would focus on correcting the grammar in your spoken English. However, if you had something like a paper or email or something that you wanted help with, then I would work on that with you as well.
And Fourth, I offer reading lessons. These lessons are for both native and non-native English speakers alike. I've tutored Elementary school students as well as adults in this skill area . During these lessons, we would focus on learning reading strategies, improving your reading speed and clarity, and learning new vocabulary.
If you want to start lessons with me simply follow 3 steps.
Step 1 - The first step is to complete a needs assessment so I can see how much you know and what you need to work on. Then I can create lessons to meet your needs.
Step 2- The second step is to set your goals. These should be SMART goals: specific, measurable, attainable, rewarding, and time-based. Think of what you want to do with the language and where and why you want to use it. Maybe you want to pass a test, get a better job, improve relationships with friends or coworkers, or maybe to help a child with homework. Whatever your goals are these will help me structure effective lessons to meet your needs and wants.
Step 3 - The third step is to book a one-on-one session with me on Wyzant.
That's it! I look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your goals. Have a great day!

It was really great experience working with Beth. Beth identifies the improvement area well on the first day and plan the lesson accordingly to improve. After the few sessions with Beth, the difference was really noticeable. I would always recommend Beth for ESL students.Aditya, 3 lessons with Beth Anne
Very Good Practice
I love Beth a lot! I have taken her courses for over a month and I enjoyed them very much. She helped me to identify my weakness in spoken English and suggested ways that helped me to improve. She is very nice and patient, and she's always willing to adjust course materials to meet my needs. I recommend her to everyone that wants to improve their spoken English!Lingzhou, 30 lessons with Beth Anne
