UBC Bachelors Grad Teaching ESL & IELTS Test Prep in Toronto/North York Area!

Methodology

When tutoring IELTS, I follow the structure laid out by the Canadian College of Educators and then make modifications to the lesson plans according to individual test-taker needs. For basic ESL, I'll test you through a conversation (text, voice or both, depending on the student) to see where you are in your training and where to go from there. I'll also get to know you more as a person to understand what your style is so that I can help you translate it over into English. All of this, plus the usual grammar and technicalities of the language. Please note, however, that my style DOES NOT emphasize technical terms like what counts as a "simple past-tense", simply because I believe there are too many exceptions to these rules in the English language to give them that much attention.

Background

My name is Jiyoon Yoon, but I go by Aelita! I graduated with a B.A. in UBC and have been tutoring English for 5 years. I'm completing certification in IELTS test prep and I specialize in Creative Technical writing -- essays and technical papers that not only deliver the info, but do it with a bit of flair!

Rate for online lessons : $ 15/h

Perfect! Aelita has given helpful suggestions to improve my logic in writing!

Jiyoon (Aelita)'s response

Derek is a very avid learner, and you can see his dedication. He has a lot to say, and that can be both his strength and weakness. He keeps an open mind when learning new content: if he has reached out to you, he most likely finds that there is something that you know that he doesn't - very active learner.

Mahrooya

Perfect! Jiyoon is an expert in IELTs! She knows her stuff and makes sure to help you understand everything in the best and easiest way possible, she is responsible, patient and honest! She is also very friendly and kind. She is a great teacher and a wonderful tutor.

Jiyoon (Aelita)'s response

I had the honour of tutoring Mahrooya's mother, Mehrnaz.

Both are beautiful people with passion and determination for learning.

Mehrnaz was easily one of the fastest students I have ever taught. She completed her homework diligently, asked questions constantly, and within the span of a month completed her first set of tasks.

I look forward to meeting her again soon when she returns from her home country to Canada again.

Aelita's is empathetic and enthusiastic personality makes her a great person to learn from. I was a returning staff to a place that her and I use to work at, and at the time there were so many changes that I was trying to relearn several things. Aelita was very friendly, patient and understanding, and I wouldn't expect anything less of her
