ESL Tutor with Tutoring Abroad experience gives ESL lessons in Chicago to all ages

Native English speaker and writer almost TEFSOL certified seeks students to teach!

I specialize in writing and English. After writing thousands of pages of papers over the years and being subject to critical "eyes" by writing experts at elite institutions, I finally figured out how to write and hope to pass along tricks, tips and ways of thinking about grammar, sequence and structure, while clearly conveying thought in written form.

Language Instructor with 4 years of experience teaching using a proven method.

I have taught hundreds of students and always could see great results using the GPA method. GPA follows a phase system starting at phase 1 to phase 5. In class there will be a lot of Tutor-Student interaction solely in English from day one. Phase 1: knows little to no English. Phase 2: knows lots of vocabulary just needs sentence structure.

1st lesson offered free !

Experienced English Teacher offering interesting and interactive classes made with love and passion.

As there are many areas of English and different teaching methods, for me, there is no one-size-fits-all solution because every child is different. All of the lessons are categorised according to age appropriateness, level and topic. I always make sure that each lesson has a clear take away. I am focused on writing skills, listening and repeating, speaking and pronouncing.
