My students are of all ages and levels and come from countries such as Armenia, Central and South America, China, Egypt, France, India, Iran, Japan, Korea, Russia, and the Netherlands, among other countries. I also speak Spanish, which has helped in tutoring Hispanic students, as I can explain grammatical similarities and differences. In addition to basic ESL, my students are encouraged to learn American idioms, accent reduction, business English and proper American office etiquette, cultural differences between the US and their home countries, conversational speaking, and reading comprehension and writing. With my more advanced students, we engage in conversations in which they express their views on world events, philosophy, and other topics that interest them.
Teaching since 1998
