Patient and Caring ESL Tutor with experience for all ages in Philadelphia, PA

Methodology

When learning a new language, it is important to use repetition, as well as writing, saying, hearing, and seeing the word being using alone and in context. I like to make learning fun by using object lessons, using silly situations for writing prompts, and practicing conversation in order to improve basic communication. When working with children, I also enjoy using games to make learning more enjoyable.

Background

I am a Youth and Family Studies graduate ('18) from Nyack College, and I have worked with children in different settings for about 10 years. I have lived in Spain for 1.5 years as well as the Dominican Republic for 5 months. While in the Dominican Republic, I was working as an Associate Teacher for a 4th grade classroom and a 1st grade ESL classroom, both of which were at a school for Dominican children being immersed in the English language. I have also assisted adults with their English, and enjoy working with people of all ages.

Crista is a wonderful, caring person. We taught together for half a year at an international school, and I got to witness her thrive. Crista is really great with people and this translates into her work with students. She has served as a mentor/ leader/ coach in many different capacities, and she leaves a lasting impact wherever she goes. I highly recommend Crista as an ESL tutor, as she is patient, encouraging, creative, and passionate. Other strengths include: bilingualism, flexibility, high accessibility, and great time management. She is very knowledgeable and always striving to grow as a teacher. I hope you can see for yourself and choose tutoring with Crista!

Crista demonstrates the natural qualities of an educator. She is both professional and relatable to her clients. As a Special Education teacher myself, I see a broad range of needs in my classroom. Crista has a unique way of presenting material that is relevant to the needs of her clients. She is knowledgeable about a variety of topics.

While I had the pleasure to work with Crista for only a few months, it was plenty of time to see her servant heart and caring spirit for the students she assists. Her friendly demeanor and warm personality sets students at ease yet still maintains a good sense of professionalism. I'd 100% recommend Crista as a Superprof to anyone who is looking to improve his or her English.

She communicates perfectly both in English and Spanish.
