Fun, Friendly English Literature and ESL tutor with 5 years of experience in Austin, TX

Methodology

My teaching method is a mixture of theory and practice. I appreciate having conversations, reviewing writing, and doing exercises. I enjoy the challenge of tailoring a course of action for each student with clear outcomes. What I have found is that it is best to meet students where they are.

Background

I am an English Literature major with years of experience with one on one and group tutoring in a college environment. I've been working in tech sales for the past few years, which in many ways is like teaching a class. I'm looking for a remote job that will allow me to practice my teaching and offer some flexibility.
