« My name’s Crystal, I am an internationally educated nurse. I need to pass an English exam, which is Celban in order for me to upgrade into a Canadian RN. However, I was struggling on my speaking skills as it is not my mother tongue. Larissa taught and guided me to improve my speaking skills. She was organized and always on time. She was easy to get along with, and I was very comfortable with her. During the initial phase, she assessed my English skills, then tailored a teaching plan according to my needs. She helped me improve my pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary. And these assisted me to boost my confidence of speaking in English. On May 2018, I passed my Celban exam with a score of 8 in speaking. I highly recommend Larissa for her dedication of teaching English language, and helping the international students to improve their knowledge and skills in using English as a second language. »

A dynamic teacher, with 4 years experience and a focus on personalized instruction, offers ESL tutoring, test prep, and general homework help from Red Deer, AB.

Methodology

Believing that everyone learns at his or her own pace, my lessons are student-focused and individually tailored to meet the specific needs of each learner. In order to monitor progress and to help students stay motivated, I utilize assessments throughout the learning process. I also have a multi-modal approach to fully engage students and will integrate activities involving literature, songs, popular culture, current events and other topics based on student's interests and educational needs.

Background

I have experience teaching English and research techniques in Bhutan and have taught a variety of K-12 students for the past five years in a classroom setting. In 2017, I transitioned into adult education and began teaching intermediate ESL both one on one and in a group. I have also attended Handwriting without Tears workshops to help students gain greater confidence with their cursive writing and printing. I provide private tutoring to both children and adults to meet their needs whether it be simply building confidence in classroom material, improving English skills or test preparation, such as CELBAN, IELTS, and TOEFL.

Rates

Transportation Fee : $20
Rate for online lessons : $ 25/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $350

Homework Help (student provides the lesson materials to work on): $25/hr
