About Sara T.

Close

About my classes:

I strive to provide the best, most interactive online English classes for every student. We will discuss your needs and obtainable goals so that I can personalize your course material in order to reach them.

Some of the ways I integrate technology to make online lessons more effective are:

-Using collaborative slides to be able to work on the materials in real time.
-Online tools and resources in order to make the classes more interactive.
-Alternative assessment using a variety of content creation in English (see below).

Project-based learning and assessment is authentic language use in speaking, listening, reading and writing activities. Students are assigned creative projects based on real-life use of the language. The content is used to create an ebook, website, training or other presentation. Their project is used for studying, reviewing and as a measure of progress and assessment over time.

Students can choose to participate in this ...

About Sara
I offer online classes in Spanish, English language (ESL/EFL), TOEFL exam prep and writing. I have taught students from age 3 to senior citizens. I have experience teaching in language centers, bilingual schools and in companies.

I have a TEFL diploma, TBE (Teacher of Business English) Certificate, BA in English Language Learner Studies with a minor in History and an MA in Teaching and Learning with Technology with a specialization as an online educator. Currently, I am pursuing my second MA degree in Curriculum and Instruction.

I begin with new student by identifying their priorities and then setting a SMART goal. Based on the timeline, I make an action plan that we follow so the student can see progress in each and every class. We reevaluate goals and materials as needed.

To make the online classes more interesting and effec
tive, we will use slides to collaborate on the materials together. This allows us to communicate in real time and the information is saved to the drive, so it is easily accessible from any computer, smartphone or tablet.

We can import images, verb charts, worksheets, PDF and doc files, ebooks and videos as needed. Using the tools, you and I will both be able to edit, write and draw on the materials and add any additional notes, links or resources during or between classes.

Please don't hesitate to use the "Ask a question" feature to contact me with any special circumstances or concerns.

About Ulyana H.

Close
Broomfield, CO

View Full Profile

I am a native English speaker and able to help with reading, reading comprehension, writing and grammar.

About Ulyana
My name is Ulyana and I'm passionate about teaching and tutoring! I graduated with a B.S. from Rice University (Houston, TX), specializing in earth sciences (geology and chemistry). I did my Masters in planetary geology at Brown University (Providence, RI), and for my PhD, I trekked over 1500 miles in Nepal, studying glacial lake flooding hazards to Sherpa villages, as well as impacts of pollution on pristine high mountains, including Mt. Everest.

For seven years now, I have either tutored or taught, in classrooms and in the field, all age groups, sharing the joy of science, math - and learning in general! When I was in my teens, I participated in many science fairs and symposia at the national and international level. Then I went to college and grad school in science. Pretty much, science has been my life! For any of your science need
s, with a special focus on astronomy and geology (earth sciences), I'm here to help. I can assist with physics, biology, chemistry and math (algebra, pre-calc, calculus). Given my experience in public speaking, the Microsoft Office suite (Excel, Powerpoint, Word) and writing, I can assist with that as well!

If you're interested in creative lessons - with a true focus on your learning experience, I'm your tutor! Often times when working out in the field in extreme locations (e.g., Antarctica and Mt. Everest), I have to MacGyver solutions on the fly. I want to teach you how to think. This skill will serve you well, long into the future.

From beginning spelling to in depth grammar, you can expect to get a thorough understanding of English in its many contexts -- and I tailor the experience to you. :)

About Isaiah
Former attendee of North Carolina School of the Arts in Winston Salem as well as SUNY Purchase School of Music.

I've worked as a professional church choral music director, and have extensive experience teaching (in addition to piano) hand drums, drumset, singing, and beginning guitar -- all in a variety of genres.

I help singers achieve vocal freedom, connecting most directly to songs as well as their natural voice.

I live, teach, and play with passion -- and look forward to sharing that with every new student I meet.

Isaiah worked with me to identify my vocal range, and where I fell short in my vocal abilities. Isaiah gave me tailor made exercises to improve my singing . I began to hear the change in just a couple of sessions. He is really patient and individualistic in his approach, which makes him in awesome teacher. I would recommend Isaiah to anyone in a heartbeat.

About Troup W.

Close
Sherman Oaks, CA
View Full Profile

I've been tutoring professionally since 2012, starting by helping other Dartmouth students with their essays. And what I saw shocked me...

...Even Ivy League students didn't know how to write!

I was lucky to have a rockstar English teacher in high school, but it was at Dartmouth where I spent hours with professors on weekends, going over essays, seeing what the best teachers in the world (according to US News & World Report 2013) thought made a perfect essay.

Now that I've "cracked the code" I can teach your student the simple tricks. Trust me, it's easier to learn how to write when you're young--it makes the rest of your life so much easier.

In 2019, China's largest college-prep company saw how I was helping students and asked me to lecture for them in 10 major cities in China.

Now, not only do I tutor essay writing and English homework--I also do college prep, including building resumes, tailoring applications, and college essay coaching.

About Troup
By getting myself into Dartmouth, graduating cum laude with honors, and then volunteering as an applicant interviewer for Dartmouth, I learned how top schools select applicants.

I believe everyone has a story to tell in their personal statement, and I work with students through the brainstorming-phase through polishing their essays. I also help with resume-building, college selection, and demystifying the application process!

I also do English and humanities homework tutoring for any grade level.
