About Esther

I am an English major, currently about two-thirds of the way through my Bachelor of Arts with the University of Phoenix. I have now earned my TEFL certification, and I expect to earn my CELTA certification by the end of June. I have about a semester's worth of tutoring experience, both at the elementary, high school, and college level, and have about 30 total hours of ESL tutoring experience. I have worked frequently with adult learners.

I love working with language, but more importantly, I love to help people learn new information and look at the world from a new perspective. Combining these interests led me to the ESL field, but I love traditional English literature as well.

I have taken a lot of literature classes, but I have been focusing on proofreading and English grammar as of late. I hold a 3.76 GPA on a 4.0 scale, and while I may not know everything, I am willing to work hard to make sure you get the best learning experience possible.

Please do feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. We can certainly schedule a trial lesson to see if I am a good match for your learning style. I am now living in the Rhinelander/Northwoods area and am willing to adjust my schedule to accommodate potential students. I look forward to working with you. Thank you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

English

I have completed approximately 62% of my Bachelor of Arts in English, and currently hold a GPA of 3.92 with the University of Phoenix. I have also taken many relevant English courses through two different universities that pertain to English, literature, and grammar.

ESL/ESOL

I am currently working towards my TEFL certification, which I expect to earn within six months. I primarily adhere to the ESA (Engage Study Activate) teaching method advanced by Jeremy Harmer, but I am always open to new techniques and possibilities.

Proofreading

I often peer-edit with fellow group members through the University of Phoenix. I also often take the lead in these cooperative writing projects, and compile and edit the paper in question for the entire group. I also write and proof-read my own papers on a consistent basis and am well-versed in MLA formatting.

Reading

I scored a 33/36 in the Reading portion of the ACT test, taken in June 2011. Since then, I have improved my reading comprehension skills as I have taken literature classes in college. I read "classic" literature on a consistent basis for my classes and so am well-versed in that area.

Vocabulary

I currently hold a 3.92 GPA with the University of Phoenix online and have completed 62% of my Bachelor of Arts in English. As such, I have taken many literature classes and come across a wide variety of vocabulary. I read often, particularly various selections from the "classics," in which advanced vocabulary is a frequent occurrence.

Writing

I have been writing for many years through my schoolwork, so I am particularly proficient with academic writing. I am most familiar with the MLA formatting style. I often peer-edit with fellow adult learners through the University of Phoenix.
