For the past 18 months, I've delighted in privately tutoring students (ages 11-16) reading, writing, and research skills, as well as preparing them for the SSAT.
Prior to that, for 25+ years I thoroughly enjoyed teaching teens and adults ESL at the college & university level. I've taught students from 80 countries, have taught overseas for 10+ years, and lived outside the U. S. for 18 years. My specialty with non-native speakers is Accent Reduction, which I taught & researched extensively at the UW (for my PhD), working with international professors, gov't ministers, and other professionals.
Starting fee for school-aged children is $35/hr for the first 4 lessons and $45/hr thereafter. (Materials are provided except for SSAT books.) My Accent Reduction program is 1. 5 hours, 2x week, at $65/hr for the first 2 lessons, and then $75/hr thereafter. All accent materials are provided. Joint re-evaluation (decision to continue) after 10 lessons. Currently I'm teaching on video call.
