Levels Taught:
Intermediate, Advanced

Improve your English writing with a PUBLISHED AUTHOR! For over a decade I have been teaching creative and technical writing skills to both native and ESL students from over 40 different countries. Whether you need help with an essay for school, a resume for an upcoming interview, or a creative piece for your blog, I can help!

WRITING is my passion – something you may have heard me discussing on the ALL EARS ENGLISH PODCAST! I specialize in teaching English writing for professional, academic, and test preparation purposes (including TOEFL, IELTS, ACT, SAT, GRE, etc.). Simply complete your writing assignment as homework and then we will work on editing it together in class. All aspects of the written language will be addressed, ranging from grammar and vocabulary to structure and organization.

Writing assignments vary but can include a variety of standard exercises that I provide OR a writing project that you are currently working on. I have literally helped thousands of students with their written assignments for work, school, and/or personal enjoyment, and I hope to be helping you soon – whether it is for a business report, resume or CV, fiction story, cover letter, dissertation, college application essay, etc!

As the author of a high school art history textbook, I understand the overwhelming frustration that can occur when working on a challenging writing project. Nevertheless, I LOVE writing, and I look forward to passing on this enjoyment and skill to you!

Teaching since:

Since I was a young child, I have been PASSIONATE ABOUT WRITING – a passion that ultimately led me to pursue a Bachelor of Arts in English writing (and art) and a teaching and writing career. Since 2006, I have been teaching English writing and ESL to students in over 40 countries who range in age from pre-teen to senior citizen.

My own writing has won numerous national and international awards, and I am the AUTHOR of an art history textbook for high school students. Last year I was featured on the famous ALL EARS ENGLISH podcast to discuss English writing techniques for non-native speakers, and my “Mastering Complex English Descriptions” article has become a hit with ESL students around the world.

Over the years I have helped numerous students improve their writing skills to receive coveted job promotions, excel on exams like the ACT or TOEFL, and get accepted into schools like MIT, Harvard, and UCLA. Whatever it is you are looking to do, let me know, and we can work on it together!

Yoichi's first review left for Gina: Thank you, Gina! I enjoyed talking with you very much. I was a little nervous before my first web lesson started, but you were so friendly and kind that I felt relaxed. You gave good advice. I'll try to learn hard by next time!

Now over 2 years and 100 classes later, the reviews are still great, though more technical... Great lesson! Thank you, Gina! Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the speeches! I forgot to ask which is correct, the position of "[...]", which means omission, right after the sentence as in S. Thurlow's transcript, or right before the sentence as in E. Roosevelt' transcript?

Gina has the rare talent to be an excellent listener which is as much important, in conversation, as to ask challenging questions to keep the student always engaged. The lesson flew and I am looking forward to our next hour!

Gina helped me over texts I wrote to present my work, improve my grammar and to rethink sentence structures and expressions. As I was presenting my work she also notice how I expressed myself and gave me excellent feedback and tips to improve it. Great lesson!
