"My tutoring experience includes working with High School Students and adults in Bankgkok, Thailand. I tutored General English, English for Marketing, Hospitality, Business, and Accounting majors. While there I also worked as a tutor to adult students, successfully helping them pass the University Test of English Proficiency and the University Graduate English Test.

I later I worked for the non profit organization the Literacy Project, in Vail, Colorado, USA. There, I taught small groups and tutored 1-on-1, including English Skills to navigate the community and job market. Topics included general English, job search support, job application and resume writing, and English Language job interview skills. I also worked as a part time tutor at Colorado Mountain College, where I tutored English Language Learners in the subject of Academic English Writing.

In 2008, I earned a Masters in TESOL and NY State Teaching Certificate from D'Youville College in Buffalo, NY. While studying, I worked for 3 years at D'Youville College as a tutor and mentor of high school students. I tutored students in all academic subjects, as well as completing college and scholarship applications, and entrance essays. One proud moment was when a hard working refugee student from Eritrea earned a 30,000 scholarship for which she submitted a well written personal essay on which she worked tirelessly. She is now nearly finished with Pharmacy School at D'Youville College and may one day fill my prescriptions.

What I love about tutoring is watching my students succeed in their endeavors. My life experiences living overseas in non-English speaking countries, as well as my English Language Acquisition Teacher Training, has taught me the value of patience, persistence, and creating tutor-student relationships in which the student feels comfortable taking risks speaking & writing, to grows their English skills and reach their goals.

I would look forward to speaking with you about your English Language goals." less...
