About Amanda

I believe the key to a quality education is in an approach that is friendly, motivating, personalized, goal driven, engaging, and accessible. I work every day to achieve those tenets for my customers.

I have a passion for helping learners accelerate their English proficiency. I've taught ESL/ESOL/ELL for a number of formal schools over the years and continue to do so, but I've found learners succeed more often with a personalized curriculum, adaptive progression, and directed engagement, which formal institutions are fairly incapable of providing.

My students love me, and I can't get enough of them. I want to help as many people as I can to achieve THEIR goals and become successful in their endeavors, by removing language barriers.

Since I've been certified to formally teach ESL(English as a Second Language), I've accrued 5+ years of experience teaching English, and have acquired a Master's of English Linguistics to further improve my curriculum and guidance. I have experience helping learners prepare for the IELTS/TOEFL. I've also been developing a university quality LMS(Learning Management System) full of curriculum and tools solely for the use of my private learners, which they can access anytime/anywhere.

Learning a second language requires time and effort. It takes a lot of sustained motivation to fuel that time and effort investment. One of the harder challenges for learners is maintaining that level of motivation. Having access to a head full on knowledge is not enough for success. To learn English quickly, you need someone who acts like a personal trainer, constantly providing goals, engagement and encouragement with a friendly, respectful demeanor.

To show you that these are not just words, your first 2 session with me are FREE. I'm confident that after those first few sessions, you'll be hooked!

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

I have TESOL certification (2011) and an MA in Applied English Linguistics (2016) from the University of Wisconsin Madison. I have over five years of ESL teaching experience in both classroom and tutoring settings. I have tutored students for the IELTS.
