About Me

Hi! My name is Amy. My Master's degree is in Secondary English Education, and I hold a TEFL/TESOL certification. I've been teaching English online since 2009, and I love it!

Here's a little bit about who I am and what to expect in one of my classes. I've been an English teacher for over twenty years. I have experience with students ranging from very young children to post graduate students and senior adults. Since I've taught all areas of English language arts, I'm happy to help with writing, speaking, listening, or reading comprehension. I won't bore you here with all the specifics about my experience since you can see for yourself on my resume.

My classes are always relaxed and encouraging. When I provide feedback, I will be positive and constructive. As a long time online tutor and as a student of language myself, I know that the best way to improve is to practice speaking skills as much as possible. I do that by asking a lot of questions and providing prompts or basic constructions for the answers.

You should be proud of yourself for taking steps to improve your English, and I'd love the chance to talk to you about working together. If you don't see a time on my calendar that works for you, feel free to send me a message, and we'll see if we can work out a convenient time for both of us. Thanks!
