Hello! Thanks for stopping by my profile!
Want to communicate better? I'm happy to help you! I have been teaching students of all ages for more than 15 years, and I can help you with English slang, conversation, grammar, or TOEFL, IELTS, EIKEN, SAT, ACT and other proficiency tests. Over the years, most of my students have been from China, Korea, and Japan, but I have also taught students from Mexico, Peru, Saudi Arabia, India, Libya, and several other places. I believe that each person can teach others, so I enjoy learning from my students as well. I am happy to work with all ages -- my students have ranged from age 3 to age 75. One of my most favorite memories as a tutor was when I helped a grandmother learn basic English so she could begin to communicate with her granddaughter. No one is too old or too young to learn a new language!
I also taught group SAT classes at a local Chinese school for 6 years, and I am constantly staying up-to-date with ongoing trends in the field of education. I have worked at OSU in higher education for more than 10 years (Go Buckeyes!), so I can also help students with preparing for college applications. Recently, one of my students got a 2390 on his SAT and several others have scored 35 on ACT (with perfect scores in English and/or reading)! I have been helping students with proficiency tests and college admissions essays for the past several years. My students have been accepted to The Ohio State University, Northwestern University, Case Western Reserve University, Cornell, George Washington University, Fordham College, and several others. I'm very proud of their hard work. It's college application season, and I love hearing stories about where my students are going to go for college -- and about the scholarships they are receiving :)
Although my main area of expertise is English, I have also tutored and taught Japanese and Spanish. I have enjoyed helping students prepare to visit or relocate to Japan and watched them grow with the language.
I offer private individual or group lessons online, on the OSU campus or in the Dublin/Worthington/Hilliard areas. No matter what you'd like to learn, I am here to help you. My goal is to help you meet yours! I am very flexible to help you study what you would like to study. No matter what your goal is, we will work towards it together! I look forward to meeting you soon!
