English teacher offering a safe space to practice English on your terms

Methodology

My teaching approach is entirely learner centered. I put in effort to understand what you want to express through body language, an understanding of your "native" tongue, your interests, and so on. I believe that it is MY responsibility to understand what YOU are trying to communicate—not the other way around.

Background

I am an English teacher and general "do gooder"! I have worked with international students to write essays for classes and graduate school admissions, teachers and learners in South Africa to improve their confidence in oral/aural English, and I currently teach ESL classes to children located in China every morning.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $15/h

Details

I travel using the T. If you are located outside of the T system, the rate for travel can increase depending on the cost of rideshare availability.
