I like to begin classes with new students by learning about their interests, personality, and current language level. I also want to know what your goals are or what you hope to accomplish in language lessons. Once I understand where you are at and where you want to go I can tailor lessons that will be most productive to helping you reach these goals. I like to have a relaxed ambiance in lessons so that students feel comfortable making mistakes, as this is not only inevitable, but also how we language learners can make the most growth.
I have been teaching internationally for the past ten years in both international schools and university English programs. I have taught students from many different language backgrounds in several different countries, helping them to improve their GENERAL ACADEMIC ENGLISH so that they can be successful in their studies across multiple subjects.

Elizabeth helped me with the finer points of English grammar and writing. While I had already taken many English classes before reaching out to her for tutoring, she nonetheless helped me hone my skills as a writer. She is very caring and passionate, and explains things in a clear way. She clearly is very passionate and I am very thankful to have had the chance to have her as my English writing tutor. Thank you, Elizabeth!
To Whom It May Concern:
This letter is to recommend my colleague Elizabeth Rench to you, as part of her application for tutoring with your institution. I joined Concordian International School in 2019, after a long career in education in the USA, Belgium, and Latvia, and Elizabeth was one of the first fellow teachers I met here. Since then, we have worked together closely and collaborated on a daily basis in the ELS Department (English Language Support) during the year we overlapped here. We have continued to stay in touch, and I have been consistently impressed with Elizabeth’s deep understanding of theory and practice in English Language Acquisition and Linguistics work with students. She is compassionate and effective as an educator.
In addition to her teaching skills, Elizabeth has shown an unusually strong affinity for both literature and nonfiction books in our conversations. We often discuss books we are reading for pleasure as well as the ones we are using in the classroom. Elizabeth is clearly an avid reader, and I have come to cherish her insights into both teaching materials and deeper themes during our discussions. If she is strongly recommending a book, I know it is a worthy read that I want to add to my list. That kind of passion for the written word is a fine testament to the kind of educator Elizabeth is, and it can’t help but come across to young people when an instructor has a deep love for their subject matter. That makes a big difference with students.
Elizabeth is also dependably professional and always prepared for class. She arrives on time and ready to go, which is an important habit as well as being representative of an overall positive attitude to her work. Though we all struggle with a lack of sleep sometimes or the stresses of the job, we know we can count on Elizabeth to be a reliable colleague who makes a strong contribution to the team.
In sum, Elizabeth Rench has my full support and enthusiastic recommendation as a candidate at your institution. Should you wish to confirm this recommendation in some form or ask additional questions, please feel free to contact me by the methods listed below.

Elizabeth gave me English classes in 2017 and 2018. She was always on time for our lesson, very professional and adapted her lessons to my needs and what I wanted to focus on. I feel like I really improved with her and would highly recommend her.
