Internationally-based Masters student with 4 years experience offers English & Writing lessons online

Methodology

I am currently a Masters student and I have given lessons to students in middle school and high school, in addition to young professionals. My methodology depends on the needs and goals of each student, but generally I start with basic writing/speaking/listening samples to gauge the weaknesses and strengths of the student. I then cater lessons towards improving each weakness. Lessons include an explanation of a concept, followed by combinations of written and verbal exercises.

Background

I have given English and writing lessons around the world for the past four years while studying and working abroad. My students of different nationalities, ages, and grade levels have improved academic and professional writing, speaking, and listening skills. As a current masters student I am constantly striving to improve my writing and hope to inspire others' writing as well!
