About Marion S.

Hi, I'm Marion. I teach ESL - English-as-a-Second language to adults. Lessons are 1 to 1, so we can work on speaking, listening, reading, writing, or whatever you need. I also work with native-English speakers and English language learners on improving their writing. Whatever your skill set, age, abilities, or background, I can help make you a better writer.

My ESL students come from many different backgrounds. Some are beginners, but most are working professionals who need to perfect their English to compete in the workplace.

My writing students are either native-speakers or English language learners who need improve their skills for school, work, or personal reasons. I can help with graduate school personal statements, job-seeking cover letters, proposal writing, and many other areas.

I love working with adults and younger people on developing storytelling techniques, and public speaking skills for presentations and interviews, as well as for personal events. These are great confidence builders with real world results!

Whether you are a native speaker or an English-language learner, it would be my honor and privilege to work with you.
