I am a native English speaker from the United States and have been teaching for the past nine years. Before I moved to Sweden in 2016, I was teaching Political Science courses at the City University of New York - classes that focused on reading and writing skill development for new college students. Since moving to Sweden, I have taught English classes at Göteborgs Integrationsnätverk and private lessons to elementary and high school students. I also currently conduct admissions interviews for the University of Pennsylvania and the Wharton School of Business.
If you are hoping to attend college or graduate school in the United States, I can assist with exam preparation, application essays, contacting professors, training for interviews, and planning extracurricular activities to make you stand out.
For those seeking help with academic English, I can assist with US graduate school applications; editing, planning, and submitting academic work for publication; training for a graduate school program in English; and improving your professional communication skills (for conferences, written correspondence, and class participation).
Additionally, I am an expert in US CV formats for academics and the tech industry and can assist with editing your CV for the US job market.
As a teacher and lecturer, I have developed interactive learning techniques designed to foster knowledge and skill growth via both individual and group activities. I have experience teaching to all skill and language levels and to students with different learning styles. It is my aim to ensure that all students are able to learn and excel in a comfortable and supportive learning environment.
