I'm an experienced English teacher, certified to teach ESL students. I am patient and supportive, focusing on the student's individual needs and learning style.
I teach the basics of English composition, college essays, literary analysis, and basic research methods and writing at the high school and college levels.
We can structure lessons as a means of going over your classwork in progress, or we can follow a lesson plan for independent study.
I have two years of experience teaching ESL writing courses for undergraduates and graduates at Northeastern University in Boston. As well, I have given research support as a reader and editor for science writers and ESL graduate students.
I have taught over 100 students from different countries, including China, Korea, Japan, Vietnam, Russia, Germany, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Mexico, Venezuela and Argentina.
Rate for in-person lessons includes cost of travel for locations up to 10 miles from me. Travel beyond 10 miles will add $10 to the per-lesson fee.

Paula helped me develop all the important base concepts that artists grow upon, from anatomy to light to scale and more. Her private lessons helped me build the eye for drawing that I have now and we still remain close friends even long after our private lessons in Connecticut ended when she moved out of state. She also introduced me to many different media forms, from oil to watercolor to charcoal, allowing me to experiment with different kinds of art and find my strengths and weaknesses. Because of her teaching, which was always constructive and kind (and most importantly relaxed and fun!) I am still very proud of my artistic abilities today, even years later. She has an incredible range of experiences to teach from and you will learn more than you could imagine if you chose her as a teacher.
Paula is conscientious, punctual, respectful and flexible. She genuinely cares about her students' progress and encourages them to take control of their individual learning experiences. She prepares herself thoroughly to teach and is organized and engaged. Her sense of humor and realistic approach make her lessons enjoyable and students can identify with her.
