Learn to speak English from a native speaker
I earned a Bachelor's in English from the University of Nebraska in Lincoln, Nebraska. I taught literacy skills and the English language at the Lincoln Action Program for young children and adults. Over the past ten years, I have written articles, business documents, fiction and nonfiction.
Experience: 2 years
Hello, I'm Teri. I enjoy working with people of all ages and look forward to working with you to enhance your English language speaking, reading and writing skills. I was born in Nebraska, so I have a very crisp, clear accent that is easy to understand.
My goal is to both increase skill and confidence in using the English language. I taught ESL for various groups for 2 years after training with the Nebraska Literacy Council. I believe my strongest asset is that I do not believe I know everything. If you close your mind to learning, then you extinguish a fire that has the abiity to inspire you to grow as a human being. In other words, though I may teach, I am walking with you and enjoy learning from you as much as you learn from me. Isn't that what life is about? Studying another language is really about sharing thoughts, experiences, and dedicating time to sharing this beautiful world, no matter where we reside.
The work we will do includes: conversational speaking, grammar, and increasing writing and proofreading skills. The lessons I provide will be custom made to meet your needs at the level of proficiency you need.
Lessons for children will include games and activities that focus on giving them a lively look at the world around them while incorporating English into it.
If you wish to set up a free 20 minute trial lesson, please send me a message.
If you set up a full 60 minute session, please give me at least 24 hours notice.
Thank you so much for considering me as your English tutor. I look forward to working with you.
