ESL tutor with experience and TEFL certificate in Windsor region (can help with reading, writing, vocabulary, conversation)

Methodology

My methodology can change from person to person. I am adaptable. I provide completely judgment-free tutoring. You can totally be yourself around me! I will work with you on whatever YOU most want to improve, not what I most want to work on. You can count on me to be honest with you, and I will always be kind and understanding. I think that tutoring sessions should last anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes so that neither of us gets too tired (but sessions can be shorter than 30 minutes if that works better for you).

Background

I have a B.A. in English Language, Literature, and Creative Writing & Communication, Media, and Film. I also have an M.A. in English and Creative Writing, and I am pursuing an M.A. in Folklore (which studies different cultures). In addition, I am TEFL certified and volunteered tutoring ESL at Windsor Public Library to small-to-medium-sized groups for almost two years.
