English tutor with experience working with SAT, ISEE, ACT and TOEFL test preparation along with reading comprehension and writing composition out of Miami, FL. Experienced working as an ESOL teacher i

Methodology

I focus on building confidence in the students I work with. In my experience, I have found that teaching is not only about providing knowledge about grammar rules, writing and reading strategies, that the application of these tool needs to be coincided with confidence in using them.

Background

I have been teaching ESOL for over 20 years and have a Master's Degree in the Humanities, majoring in Anthropology, Minoring in English Literature. I am presently a tutor for test preparation, ESOL learners and for students with difficulty in decoding while reading or grammar structures for writing.
