WLU English Grad with Lv5 OFQUAL TEFL Certificate Offering English Lessons for All Levels

Methodology

Though my professional teaching experience is from university classroom environments, I approach education with flexibility and the understanding that every student learns differently. I encourage all students of mine, regardless of age and experience, to perform a verbal needs assessment with me so that lessons might be tailored to their specific needs. As such, classes can vary wildly from one to the next. I also strongly enjoy forming a connection with students, as I subscribe to the belief that education should be enjoyable for all who participate in it.

Background

I am a recent Wilfrid Laurier University Grad with a BA in English & Medieval and Medievalism Studies. I was top of my class and participated in invitational pedagogy seminars, presented my writing at conferences, and I was an Instructional Assistant for the entirety of my fourth year. I also have a Level 5 OFQUAL TEFL certificate.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $ 30/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $140
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $275

Details

I can offer more specialized assistance, including off-hours review of written assignments and essay reviews, for an adjusted rate depending on the level of the student's work.

I request that cancellations be done with 24 hours notice.
