Tutor Information

About

Hi, I'm Rachael! I'm an ESL teacher and English tutor. I have 8 years of in-house and virtual experience, and I specialize in ESL, Creative and Essay Writing, and Literature. I'm TEFL certified, with a BA in English-Creative Writing, and a minor in Comparative World Literature. When it comes to teaching and tutoring, my philosophy is simple: I provide a safe, comfortable environment where my students can challenge themselves, and when our lessons are over, they leave with a better understanding of the subject, along with the ability to apply those skills to future material. I offer general ESL and English tutoring, tutoring for Literature and Humanities, as well as Creative Writing and Essay writing help. As a former TA who specialized in grading essays and helping students improve their writing, I'm proud of my ability to sit down with my students and help them refine their essays and research papers. I'm also well versed in study skills, and developing custom lesson plans and study materials for students of all ages. If you're looking to improve your ESL skills, or need assistance with English subjects, I'm here to help! My schedule is super flexible, and I'm happy to work with students to find the best time, price, and package. Feel free to send me a message anytime :)

Reviews

Essay writing

Rachael is truly awesome. She is a very nice person who truly cares about helping her students. I appreciate how she teaches important writing tips while editing the essay, as it helps me learn what to do for future assignments. She helped me with my 10 page university level essay, and it looks great!
