What I Offer
I give English lessons online, via Skype, Google Chat, or any other service where voice or video chat is possible, and normally charge 18 US dollars per hour. I can assist you with:
• Conversational Practice
• Grammar and Writing
• Exam Preparation
• Preparing for Interviews
• Learning Specialized Vocabulary
• Editing and Proofreading Documents
I use PayPal for payment processing (I normally send an invoice via email). I also offer a satisfaction guarantee: I will take payment after the lesson is over, and not in advance. If you are unsatisfied, there is no obligation to pay.
I can schedule flexibly to meet the needs of each student, and can work with anyone who already understands basic English. For more information, you are welcome to contact me at email@example.com.
More About Me
I'm an American English tutor, born and raised in New York. I completed my bachelor's degree in history and political science at Stony Brook University, where I tutored international students in English as a hobby for three years. After my bachelor's, I entered a master's program to become a high school history teacher, but was unable to complete my program, because my disability made it difficult for me to travel. I use a wheelchair, and the transit system in my area was very bad. Because my family could not afford a specially modified car or van, I wasn't able to consider other jobs in my area, either.
I returned to my university to attempt further studies in history, but became very sick, and had to go on a medical leave of absence. I was very depressed, until one of my friends from Russia, in thanks for a favor, posted an advertisement for me as an English tutor on her company's message board. I began working as a tutor via the internet in November 2011, and I love what I do. I plan to start my masters in English through an online program with the University of Memphis in June, and I look forward to working with more students from all over the world.
