"Hi! I'm Liz. I am an experienced ESL teacher who is passionate about helping students improve their English through intellectual engagement. I like to use social science, current events, and popular culture as tools to make English language education more engaging and accessible for learners. I have experience teaching all levels of English at private language schools, private lessons, academic institutions, and city government offices. The content of my lessons range from everyday, to academic, to professional English while covering listening, speaking, reading, grammar, and vocabulary. I am also an avid language learner myself -- I speak intermediate Turkish, beginning Spanish, and French. Learning a language as difficult as Turkish has sharpened my skills as an English teacher by building my empathy for learners and understanding tricks and tools to help my students grasp and remember the language more successfully. I'm also an enthusiastic writer and editor with years of experience crafting application essays, cover letters, resumes, and academic dissertations. My combined writing and ESL experience has given me expertise in proofreading and constructing texts with native and non-native English speakers. I work closely with students to develop and and polish academic essays, articles, and reports that are clear, concise, and to the point. I have over 10 years of professional writing experience, as well as an excellent track record of helping academics publish their work. Correcting mistakes and awkward sentence structures is my specialty!" less...
