About this tutor

My name is Analita Mulligan, and I am a native, English speaker with certifications to teach English as a Second Language or English as a Foreign Language (ESL/EFL) and am also certified by the state of New Jersey to teach English Language Arts (ELA--writing and reading to native speakers). During my 20-year teaching career, I have worked here in several states in the USA, Asia, South America, and most recently in Europe (Germany).

All English services provided by ESL and English Writing and Literature Services, LLC., are fully customized, meaning that all instruction and materials used are tailored to the unique learning needs and objectives of either each individual or learning group. In addition, it is an area service that provides in-person courses throughout Hudson County in New Jersey and in Manhattan, NYC, and online classes to anywhere. For example, it has provided classes to students located in Shanghai and Beijing, China; Lebanon; Massachusetts; California; Chicago; Pennsylvania; and Germany.

My teaching experience includes working with students of all ages, levels, and an array of nationalities who are non-native and native speakers. For example, in Kitakami City, Japan, I taught from kindergartners to senior level executives at the Toshiba headquarters there. In Bogota, Colombia, I taught English writing and literature at an international, bi-lingual, International Baccalaureate (IB) school, before working with business professionals from diverse industries throughout this city. And in New Jersey, I worked with gifted and talented American students at a public, magnet, high school called Dr. Ronald McNair Academic High School, which has been consistently ranked as one of the top 5 schools in the entire state, since its founding in 1976, and is also nationally known for its students' academic achievements.

Furthermore, I am a member of the International Association of Teachers of English as a Foreign Language (IATEFL), based in Faversham, Kent, England; Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) International, based in Alexandria, Virginia, USA, and the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE), based in Urbana, Illinois, USA. 

I provide fully customized courses in:

*ESL/EFL (Speaking, Listening, Reading, and Writing)

*Speaking (Speech Making and Verbal Presentations, along with learning the appropriate use of body language to achieve one's objectives), Writing (including various essay formats, business writing proposals, grant writing, personal statements for university admission, etc...), and Reading

*Test Preparation in all English subjects

ESL and English Writing and Literature Services, LLC, uses the Communicative Language Teaching (CLT) approach because it emphasizes interaction as both the means and the goal of studying, along with Task-Based Language Teaching (TBLT), which is about using the type of language that is necessary for daily life whether it be for personal, academic, or professional purposes - both spoken and written.

When teaching speaking to both ESL/EFL students and native speakers, I work with my students on their diction: pronunciation, articulation, enunciation, intonation, grammatical accuracy, and vocabulary development. 

When teaching writing, I focus on grammatical accuracy, spelling, punctuation, vocabulary, syntax, and on the usage of the appropriate tones for whom the work is being addressed. 

When teaching reading to my students, I do decoding and comprehension exercises and activities to ensure that they understand what they have read and included in the discussions is the help students need to understand that what they read is important and relevant to them. After reading each piece of various kinds of literature, students should be able to comment and provide clear opinions, in addition to being able to write in cohesive, cogent, and compelling ways about them. 

I also provide interactive listening activities and exercises to develop students' listening capabilities through a broad variety of audio materials.

All  educational services come with a free 30-minute consultative session to address your questions and discuss your unique learning needs and objectives.

    Analita Mulligan is a very dedicated and experienced teacher who knows how to infuse enthusiasm and energy in her students. My son is more of science and maths student and was not keen in ELA. Within a short period of time my son got interested in the subject and started getting much better marks in English. I was so happy with the results that my second son started tuition with Analita. So far things are going great and I would like to thank her for her professionalism and dedication.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

One of my students from China, Wang, was changing careers and preparing to interview for an entry-level position in her newly chosen field. Her English level is between the basic and pre-intermediate levels, so she was very nervous about this process. I compiled a list of interview questions, which I thought she might be asked, and we practiced through role-play over the course of three weeks, for twice a week. One day, I got a very excitable text from her saying that she had "aced" the interview and which also expressed thanks for all of my help. On days like those, it confirms why I do what I do. Objective met!!! 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Be prepared with specific questions to ask the teacher.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Think about questions which will show how the teacher will help you in achieving your learning objectives.
