Online Tutoring for Elementary and Middle School Students/ESL for Adults and Children/English

Methodology

I believe every student is different so I tailor my teaching methodology to each one.

I can:
• Assist you or your child with English homework, and in similar subjects for elementary and middle
school level
• Teach a provided curriculum if desired
• Tutor/assist children in public, private, or homeschool settings
• Help with ESL conversation fluency

Background

My name is Sarah and I am a native English speaker. I am a recent evacuated Returned Peace Corps Volunteer who served in Namibia from 2019-2020. I have a passion for teaching children and adults. In Namibia, I taught grades 6 and 7 English and have experience teaching adults ESL as well. Now that I am back, I am missing my learners and teaching so I am offering online tutoring services. In the future when the social isolation order is lifted I am open to discussing in-person tutoring.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $30/h

Details

I have a 3-hour cancellation policy.

I am open to moving to in-person tutoring after the shelter in place order is lifted.

My hourly rate is $30 but I am willing to negotiate.
