Experienced, dedicated ESL and writing tutor in New York with a master's degree and a lot of patience

Methodology

I approach my students as individuals who want a caring teacher and lessons that fit their needs. I've taught all levels and language skills, and everyone is unique. First, I would find out exactly what you need and create lessons that were interactive and challenging for you. I am known for my attention to students and taking the time to help them as much as they need.

Background

I have a master's in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) and many years of experience teaching students from all over the world at two universities in New York. I have helped students from total beginners to very advanced levels achieve their goals in English, and I have gotten great evaluations for years.
