I am an English Teacher with a different twist. While I'm very well-versed in English (Business English, writing, grammar, vocabulary, reading, pronunciation, handwriting, including ESL), I focus on my students' interests, passions, and strengths to build their comfort and proficiency in American English. And we have FUN with it!! I include exercises doing PowerPoint, public speaking, conversation, memorization, goal-setting, and even art to help students enjoy learning. Each student's class materials are customized to them and their learning style. To know more about me, feel free to check out my social media: (15) Sandi MacCalla | LinkedIn; (15) LifeSkills Academy: Company Page Admin | LinkedIn.
I hope to meet and work with you in making English amazing, fun and empowering.
After two years of teacher's guidance, my son's English has improved significantly.
Sandi is very kind and friendly so my 11 year old son always enjoys meeting with her. She has been helping him to improve his writing, and she is an expert! Sandi is also very professional, organized, and prepared for their meetings. Highly recommend.
My son has been a student of Ms. Sandi MacCalla for close to two years. We have moved to the US in 2019 and my son who was 9 years old at the time, was finding it difficult to adjust to the change in curriculum and culture. Ms. Sandi was able to identify the needs of the student and created a curated class structure encouraging my Son through out the learning process. His skills in English Language Arts have significantly improved over an year and he was able to reach and go beyond the standard level. We cannot thank enough for Ms. Sandi's help. She is an amazing teacher who is courteous, kind and fun-loving. She engages her students using immersing resources and teach with patience. We highly recommend Ms. Sandi MacCalla for helping you and your kids to improve English language arts, reading comprehension and writing skills. She is simply an Amazing human being an excellent teacher. Thank you so much for your help, Ms. Sandi!!
Sandi is a great teacher. My daughters’ English proficiency has greatly improved after they started working with Sandi year ago. Our kids enjoyed every lesson with her. We are very happy with the results.
I like to have some background on them, how they learn, what goals/targets they are seeking; so I generally ask them to begin by verbally and in writing to tell me their story: best adventures, favorites, dream(s).
I like to make the classes very practical so that their success rate is fast and high.
I have taught children and adults on the topics I'm most skilled in: English (writing, speaking), social manners, etiquette, business practices (legal, management, sales, marketing, staffing, community development, Board of Directors practices, et al).
My education has been specific to the work I'm involved with and has varied from 3 years college, industry trainings, skills workshops, Etiquette Certification, Association Management Certification(s).
For Tutors.com classes, I charge market rates.
Being the first-born, I'd say I've been learning and teaching all of my life. My business style for marketing/sales was always from the vantage point of a consultant. As a leader of staff/corporate entities, I have developed operating processes, hired & trained staff and been responsible for developing staff support/fulfillment.
I have taught students from 5 years old through senior-aged.
I just this past week launched a 3 week class for students at a "children's prison" on social success. Of recent date, I've been called to teach etiquette classes to elementary grades. The reason I was excited about this week's class launch is that I saw immediate results with teen-aged boys. It was quite energizing!
Often, it seems that students believe that they don't have a need to prepare for their future. What I've seen is that success teeters on the degree of preparation; which means the better prepared, the better the success.
As a famous thought leader - Stephen Covey - stated: "Begin with the end in mind." If a student knows the target they are interested in, it makes the journey flow smoother and faster. If it turns out the target changes in the process, it's because a better target was just behind their initial goal. Everything else from there falls into place. It's not complicated!
