About Colton

After nearly ten years in education, I must say that my favorite thing about tutoring is the moment when I receive a message from an ESL student informing me that they did well on a test, presentation, or important assignment. English is a tricky and complex language. To be successful, a student must be dedicated, have an outstanding work ethic, and also have a great teacher. When I am teaching one-on-one, I utilize the available time to focus on the areas where the student needs the most work. With years of experience teaching IELTS and TOEFL prep, I can quickly identify what skills need the most improvement.

In addition to having a wealth of experience, my teaching style allows students to relax and feel comfortable when studying a new language. I want you to learn a lot and be prepared, but I also want you to have fun and feel like class is not a chore. For me, there is nothing better than seeing my students succeed, and that is achieved with a combination of hard work, individualized lessons, and lots of practice. Your success and satisfaction is my top priority!

While working as an Admissions Counselor at the University of Washington, I became proficient at personal statement writing and proofreading. After my time in admissions, I lived and taught in Taipei for four years. During some of this time, I taught English at a prestigious private school called Kang Chiao. In addition to teaching primary school English, I taught private IELTS/TOEFL preparation courses. Since moving back to the USA, I have been working as an official instructor for the American Chinese Exchange Society.

Whether you are an international student or not, I hope that I can assist you in your pursuit of English fluency!

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.

IELTS

For four years I worked as an admissions advisor at the University of Washington. During that time, I became very familiar with testing requirements. When I moved to Taiwan in 2011, I immediately began tutoring IELTS prep classes using the Barron's materials. Each week I taught three 2-hour classes which consisted of essential vocabulary, testing strategies, and practice exams. I taught these classes up until December 2015 when I moved back to the USA.
