"I became a tutor during my undergraduate studies. During this time, my children were in elementary, middle, and high schools. Over the years, I frequented their schools as a volunteer and realized that the number of students struggling with reading, writing, and English had continuously increased. Initially I went back to school to facilitate these student populations with English, but I began teaching adult English learners through a local tutoring program and expanded my knowledge of learning across age groups. Since I really enjoyed teaching English language acquisition, I doubled my BA major to learn more about ESL. I graduated summa cum laude from Ashford University with a double major in Social Sciences with a concentration in Education and English Language Learner Studies. I continued a 4.0 GPA with my M.Ed. in Adult Education and also earned a graduate certificate in Teaching with Technology and Distance Learning. Presently, I am working toward a Master of Science in Information Systems, specifically web development, to learn the skills necessary to design educational websites for my learners. I have been on Wyzant’s nationwide top 100 tutors list and for the past 8 years that I have been tutoring adolescents and adults in English language acquisition, reading, writing, and TOEFL test prep. I feel that I have the best job on Earth. I have taught students from all over the world whom have shared their traditions, languages, and dedication to learning. Tutoring is the only job where saying goodbye is a fulfilling experience.

My specialties are in ESL, writing, reading, and preparation for the TOEFL. I have also helped learners with the ESL Compass, and the English, reading, and writing sections for the Compass, SAT, and ACT. Additionally, I have a great reading program for all learners, which focuses on phonemic awareness, vocabulary acquisition, and fluency. My teaching is student centered, addressing the needs of individual learners. During our first meeting, we will discuss your learning goals" less...
