In 2011, I became teaching certified with my Master's in Teaching English as a Second Language. I have worked over 3 years in ESL teaching and 2 years in English composition class for native speakers.
I offer tutoring in TOEFL prep, English and academic vocabulary, academic composition, English grammar, presentation (public speaking), listening focus, English culture, and conversation skills.
I am also qualified for editing and proofreading.
I find creative ways to get students practicing English and focusing on specific skills areas.
The nature of the class (serious, fun, intense, laid back) would depend on the needs of the student.

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.
I have taught presentation courses in ESL to help students improve public speaking skills. These courses included developing skills such as intonation, gesturing, posture, content, flow of speech, volume/confidence, articulation, and pronunciation. In addition, I have assessed and advised businessmen in improving public speaking skills.
