I have extensive experience in small group and private ESL tutoring, and the feedback from my students is that I am organized, I care about the students and I can describe well. I use lots of resources to teach something many ways.
I have taught English for many specific job types, business, post-secondary school entrance exams, so I can be very flexible to what you need.
I have taught students whose first languages are French, Thai, Portugese, Spanish, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, German, Creole, Arabic, Farsi, and many many more. Many students ask me to reduce their accent - I disagree with this request. Accents are beautiful, as long as you are well understood. I will make sure people can understand you and that you can understand other people. I am an expert at creating curriculum and lesson plans for your needs.
* A Bachelor of Science (Honours) degree in Biology and Psychology from Queen's University
* A Bachelor of Education (Junior/Intermediate, Global Perspectives) degree from University of Ottawa
* A TESOL (Teach English as a Second/Foreign/Other Language) teaching certificate
* Taught Adult ESL for 3 years
* Been teaching and tutoring for over 8 years
* Been a head teacher, creating curriculum and guiding other teachers to teach ESL
**CURRENTLY - I am fully booked for private lessons, and only have space in the small groups. If you're not sure if it's right for you, let's have a Skype call to talk about what you need. If necessary, I can recommend another teacher, too. **
About my classes:
I do this because I love to travel, and to meet people like you. When I help others to learn English, it makes me feel like I am visiting all places in the world. I am also excited for you to teach me things about your language and your home town.
I follow the most effective curriculum not offered anywhere else in Ottawa - designed based on CURRENT educational theory and proven effective results. Ask any of my former students.
The small groups really are small, and full day price (5-6 hours) includes entry to places in Ottawa, sometimes tourist attractions, where we apply the English we practice.
If you're not from Ottawa, or will leave Ottawa and want to continue, I will connect you by video to our classroom, so that you can continue learning with me.
I have proven methods, and can refer you to any of my former students (on our outside of SuperProf) to get their opinion. If you need English for any aspect of your life, I promise you results: there is no better way to learn than my immersive strategy. If you want to know more, just chat with me and I will explain why I'm different and better than any other tutor you'll meet here.
Perfect! Carley demonstraded being the best one from all ESL tutors I looked here. I was sure she was the right person to help me to achieve my goals. My expectations was very high and it was a pity we couldn’t go further. My plans are delayed due to the pandemic, so keep me posted about your availability in the future. Cheers!
At the time of accepting Paulo's request, my circumstances didn't allow me to follow through with my commitment to Paolo's lessons.
Paulo was understanding and kind, and also prompt with responding to emails and preparing for the lessons in advance of our schedule. He is a conscientious student and I would be so fortunate to have an opportunity to teach him in the future. Wishing you all the best for success, Paulo!
I was 56 yo when I met Carley teaching ESL in Ottawa. So I wasn´t interested in killing time and spend money far away from home, I was there to learn English and Carley filled up all of my expectations, because she was a good, serious, organized, kind and helpful teacher.
Carley, one of the brightest young teacher I met on my way...
Highly responsible and friendly..
