BA Lingustics Language teacher for ESL, academics and creatives based in NYC

Methodology

I offer the full range of English lessons from beginner ESL to post-doctoral. I hold a BA in Linguistics and am specialized in both language science theory as it relates to grammar structures as well as to creative writing and literature.

I employ different techniques depending on my students needs, abilities and personalities. I creatively employ various methods to find what works best for you. I am a linguist at heart and bring this into my teaching. As such, I view it as my duty to draw out the best in my students and help them translate their ideas, whether it is with ESL or in a creative way.

My strong belief is that everyone has something wonderful to offer and it is my job as a teacher to help my student grow in their knowledge of not only the topic, but in their personal confidence as well.

Background

I have been giving lessons throughout and after my BA degree. I worked with countless students, many international, on essays, discussions, dissertations and the like. I have helped students successfully submit MA theses, PhD dissertations as well as be accepted into competitive local school programs and colleges.
