Tutoring and Teaching Experience

I am a Minnesota licensed teacher. I have over 9 years of experience teaching students of all ages, backgrounds, and a wide range of abilities and goals, The majority of my teaching experience has been in adult ESL. The bulk of my classroom teaching experience was at an adult education center located in Columbia Heights, where I taught intermediate to advanced adult English Language Learners from 2011 - 2017. I also taught English to elementary and middle school students at a language institute in South Korea as well as Social Studies to at-risk youth at an alternative school in Columbia Heights. Much of my instruction has targeted improvement in the following areas: reading fluency and comprehension, academic vocabulary, speaking (pronunciation and grammar) and writing (writing conventions and sentence structure).


I have over 300 hundred hours of private, one-on-one and small group tutoring experience. I've tutored native and non-native English speakers in language arts, English, and standardized test preparation including the GED and Accuplacer exams.
