I teach all forms of literacy including listening, speaking, writing, and reading English. I teach grammar, phonics, word recognition and comprehension, vocabulary, spelling, and effective, expressive, and creative writing skills. I have been an avid reader and writer ever since my elementary school days. At college, I received a perfect score on my departmental English exam. I have three education degrees: A double bachelor's in elementary education and music, and a Master's Degree in Reading and Curriculum. I am presently a Mesa Laubach Literacy Council Board Member and Tutor. I love to help students become more proficient in the English language.

I really appreciated Lilla's help with Hungarian. She was easy to understand, tailored each lesson to what I needed help with, and gave me helpful resources to practice with. I needed help reviewing and refreshing my Hungarian language knowledge before moving to Hungary, and felt much more confident in my skills after my lessons with her.

Unfortunately for the last few months she's missed about every third class without even an apology. For the last two weeks she's completely no showed to lessons and is no longer responding to email.
