English Language and Linguistics professional student providing excellent tutoring services in Ottawa

Methodology

My lessons begin with an informal assessment of where you are in your understanding of the topic we'll be studying and we'll build up from there. This ensures that no time is wasted teaching you things that you already know. My specialty is in linguistics and language analysis, however I also provide services in academic English, scholarly reading, essay writing, and language processes. These classes are meant for anyone from grade-school to University to advanced learners. What makes me special as a tutor is that I will always personalize lesson plans for YOUR needs and accommodate for all types of learners. Hope to hear from you soon!

Background

I am a current student of Cognitive Science with a specialization in language and linguistics and a minor in psychology. I am able to provide help for all things language and linguistics, including learning new languages, reading, writing, language analysis, phonetics, phonology, semantics, morphology, pragmatics, and SAT, ACT, and GED preparation.

Ally was fantastic for my two kids. My son Jason, who is in grade 9, has a learning disability and finds it very difficult to write papers. Ally was so patient and knowledgeable she helped him bring up his English grade from D's to B+'s and A's which are grades that Jason has never received before in English class. I will be hiring Ally again and could not recommend her enough!
