About Gretchen

You can count on me to give you the extra boost you need to improve your English and succeed at school and with standardized testing. I have plenty of teaching and tutoring experience; I first started tutoring in 1989 at college and have been teaching ever since then. I have an advanced degree in language from one of the nation's top language schools, Middlebury College, where I graduated with high honors. Additionally, I have A TESOL Certificate from Seattle University and a Diploma to Teach Italian as a Second Language from the University for Foreigners in Italy.

Teaching and studying language and literature is my passion. I enjoy working on a one to one basis with students, giving constructive and positive feedback. I am currently on staff at North Seattle College where I am an ESL Instructor in the IEP Program for International students. Having recently returned from a five year stint in the Middle East preparing students to take the IELTS and succeed at college where English is the language of instruction, I am experienced at preparing international students to achieve in academic careers in the English speaking world.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you move forward successfully. You will find that my patient and systematic approach will help you to enjoy your studies and achieve the results you want.
