Caring and professional, I would love to help you or your teenager improve your English or English Language Learning skills for work or school. I have a Master's degree from the University of Washington (UW) in teaching English as a Second Language. I've taught ESL and tutored for 35 years in Korea, Taiwan and the US.

I have the most experience tutoring college students, professionals and other adults. Students have learned to give speeches, write research or emails and communicate in the real world. I welcome anyone who is learning English for the first time.

As middle and high school students, you may want writing. That's my favorite subject to teach. Perhaps, you want reading comprehension for school assignments or for enrichment. I teach all language related subjects. Students have said that studying with me "is challenging and fun." Finally, I can prepare you for the TOEFL, TOEIC, IELTS or SAT.

I have been a private tutor since 1995. During that time, I have taught many students who are seeking admission to graduate school. I teach them how to write the two tasks, providing content suggestions, grammar instruction and templates. For the independent speaking, we practice the topics and the delivery of the ideas. For the integrated listening and speaking and writing tasks I put the skills together. I also give tips for doing better on the test.

She is awesome!

Trude is an amazing teacher. She helped me a lot. She taught some methods to improve my vocabulary and my speaking. She also worked on my pronunciation. I really learned and enjoyed our time together. I totally recommend her!

Caroline, 3 lessons with Trude

Very helpful

Trude makes me realize that I can achieve whatever I want to, if I am willing to work for it and also she cares and helps me with writing skills. I will complete studying with her until I will get high school in IELTS.

Daliyah, 3 lessons with Trude

Excellent tutor

She taught me TOEFL writing essay. She helped me in my writing skills. She used to review my essay before the session start and then go over it together. She is good at giving examples, simplifying the difficulties and clarifying the main ideas.
