Online English Classes
I am an English teacher and experienced online educator.
With over 12 years of experience teaching online, I am not
new to remote teaching or distance learning. I am adept at
creating a dynamic learning environment for my students.
I offer private, 1-on-1 English classes, fully customized to meet
each student’s goals and interests.
How does an online English class work?
I work with students and parents to design a private, 1-on-1 English class to develop specific skills. Whether you want to improve your essay writing, build your vocabulary, or work through a challenging novel, we will customize a class to meet your goals. We can focus our private class time on exploring skills and interests that you’re not able to pursue in school. Additionally, we can use our class time to work on your school assignments in more depth. We will design a class that challenges you to develop your critical thinking and writing skill set.
Is an online class the same as tutoring?
I am a teacher, not a tutor. I see my role as more than just helping you with homework. I provide you with a flexible, creative learning space: your very own English class, where you can explore and excel at your own pace, without the pressure of grades and tests. As we work together, we will do more than simply raise your next test score or semester grade. I will help you develop your skill set to make you a strong writer, a sharp reader, and a creative critical thinker.
What is your teaching background?
Since 2010, I’ve been privileged to teach English in the summer program at Phillips Exeter Academy, one of the world’s most esteemed and rigorous college preparatory schools. My teaching is based on Exeter’s famous Harkness method, which encourages students and teachers to learn collaboratively through discussion and exploration.
I’ve taught and volunteered at Boston-area schools through Boston Partners in Education and Citizen Schools. I attend professional conferences and workshops throughout the year to hone my skills as an educator.
What grades to you teach?
Most of my career has been teaching students in grades 6 through 12.
However, I have experience working with college students and adult learners as well. If you’re wondering if I’m a good fit, I’m always glad to schedule a video or phone call.
Do you teach international students?
Yes! I work with students around the world. I reserve slots in my weekly schedule to accommodate students in different time zones. Teaching in the diverse international communities of Boston and Phillips Exeter Academy has enriched me as an educator and a person, and I value every student’s unique heritage. Wherever you are, let’s connect.
When can we schedule a class?
Classes can be scheduled in the morning, afternoon or evening, weekdays and weekends. I work with most students for a period of 1 hour, and some for an extended 75-minute class period, two or three days per week. But your class schedule is entirely up to you.
