Hello! I'm Bethany, and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2012, and have loved helping my students improve their English proficiency, master the French language, and raise their test scores. I went to Muhlenberg College and earned a degree in French in 2011. I've also taken some graduate courses in teaching, and I recently earned my Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA) from Cambridge! I'm a positive and adventurous person. My teaching style is creative, patient, and dynamic. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

By far one of the best teachers I have ever had. Bethany always gives me a comfortable atmosphere to learn English. She prepares the lessons according to my needs and takes care of all the details. Highly recommended!
