"The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery. - Mark Van Doren

Hello, and thank you for considering me! I am a Cambridge University CELTA-certified English/ESL teacher, a magna cum laude graduate of Tufts University, and a dedicated educator. I have tutored and taught adults, youth and children in private lessons, the public school system and through nonprofit educational organizations for more than twelve years.

As a teacher, I have three important priorities: 1) to help students to improve their English (or Spanish) communication and comprehension skills, 2) to build their self-confidence in speaking, reading and writing, and 3) most importantly, to enjoy learning. I care deeply about my students' interests and goals, and that guides what and how we study together. I believe that learning should be interesting, challenging and fun, and I want my students to love learning as much as I love teaching. I tutor online and I also travel throughout San Francisco and the Peninsula and offer classes at a discounted rate in Pacifica. During the restrictions of the shelter-in-place order, I am tutoring online only.

As I get to know a student's learning style and personality, I see how each student learns best and I adapt my teaching style to find the best fit for each student. I'm a flexible and creative tutor, and I enjoy finding the most effective teaching methods for each of my students. I offer a free one-hour consultation meeting, so I can learn more about potential students and they can learn more about me before deciding to study with me.

As a professionally trained ESL teacher, I can teach students all aspects of the English language including speaking, conversation and public presentation, reading and listening comprehension, grammar, vocabulary, writing, English literature, and TOEFL test preparation. Please read my subject descriptions for more information on how I can help students in each area.

I am an experienced English Language Arts teacher and am familiar with the California State/Commo" less...
