I have 20 years of teaching English and a Masters degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. I'm patient and nurturing while at the same time I expect and encourage excellence in the students I tutor.
I teach all ages (3-83) and needs including speaking, reading, and writing.
Not only do I strive to plan a lesson that is appropriate to my student's level and goals, but also is interesting, and fun. The joy of interacting with learners and witnessing their acheivements in writing, reading, and speaking keeps me motivated to be the best I can be as thier tutor.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I offer a free session to determine what the student's learning goals are, his or her current level of competency, and learning style. I determine if we are a good fit for one another and if we both agree to proceed, I will write up an individualized learning plan for the student and a lesson plan for the first paid class.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have a master's degree in teaching English to speakers of other languages. I also have more than 16 years of experience in teaching students of all ages and nationalities.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
$125 per month for a one hour class each week. The monthly rate is paid in advance on the 1st day of each month.
How did you get started teaching?
I began teaching when I was in college. I took some courses on teaching English and writing. I taught creative writing to a group of "at risk" high school students. After that year I went to Japan and taught a group of doctors how to speak and write better English. I decided to become an English teacher after college.
What types of students have you worked with?
I have worked with all ages and most nationalities. I currently choose to work with preschool through sixth grade students of any nationalitiy. My favorite student is one who is eager to learn and willing to take direction.
