About Til

I have fourteen years of teaching experience in higher education and am an Assistant Professor in the Languages and Literature department at Northern Virginia Community College in Annandale, Va.

I have written a teachers handbook exploring the reason for errors in ESL student writing, and a vocabulary textbook for the American Culture and Language Institute at NOVA. I hold a Master's in English with a concentration on Applied Linguistics. I am also a creative writer currently engaged in MFA work at the Vermont College of Fine Art.

I can make very complicated grammar and writing tasks much easier for students, and I have a deep appreciation and interest in the native language and culture of each of my students.

I have helped many students prepare for the TOEFL test and advance into regular college classes. My classes and tutoring sessions are very informative but also very enjoyable.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ASVAB

Certified to prepare students for the ASVAB test.

ESL/ESOL

I hold a Master's degree in Linguistics and a TESL certificate. I have taught adults ranging in age from 18 to 60 for over ten years. I have also taught all levels of ESL from beginning to advanced and have prepared students to successfully take the TOEFL test and enter community college and university degree programs.

Grammar

All levels and aspects of grammar are offered, from beginning to advanced, simple verb and sentence structure to advanced essays and composition.

Writing

I have been writing fiction, poetry, and learning material for the past ten years. I am a college reading and writing instructor and a member of SCBWI (The Society for Children's Book Writers and Illustrators). I host a pod site of my original short stories, and I am near completion of my first novel for upper middle-grade readers.
