SAT & ACT Test Preparation, General English tutoring

I am a Linguistics student waiting to enter university and I have experience as a test taker as well as test prep tutor. In 2016, I scored a full composite score of 36 for my ACT, and obtained a score of 1580 for the new SAT in 2016 as well. I have experience in test prep tutoring in Singapore for both SAT and ACT, and two of my students have gone on to score full scores for the ACT this year.

I also can provide test prep for SAT Subject Tests (SAT II), in the areas of Mathematics and Literature. I scored 800 for Math II and 770 in Literature in the November sitting of the SAT Subject Test.

Otherwise, I am a native English speaker from Singapore, and have obtained 'A's in English Language for the GCE Ordinary Level Examinations, and an 'A' in General Paper (a writing and comprehension intensive subject) in the GCE Advanced Level Examinations. I am competent in providing general English language tuition to teenagers and young adults.

Other than native English, I have Japanese N4 level proficiency, and have studied Mandarin since elementary school in Singapore.

About Me

I am an aspiring educator whose main teaching interests lie in language education. My main academic interests are linguistics and language acquisition, which I will pursue in university.

My personality has been described as bright and frequently charismatic. I strive to apply these traits in teaching, and strongly believe in building reliable teacher-student support networks as well as a conducive classroom environment.

Right now, I am living by myself in Tokyo until February 2017, and am seeking part-time, informal employment in language and test prep teaching.

Education

B.A. in Linguistics, University of Pennsylvania, 2017-2021
GCE Advanced Levels, Hwa Chong Institution, 2013-2014 (Earned Distinctions in General Paper, Geography, Economics, Literature in English, Mathematics and Project Work)

Experience / Qualifications

I was an intern at Indigo Education Group in Singapore, a premiere supplementary lessons center conducting examination revision lessons for secondary and pre-university students. I developed curriculum materials as well as did relief teaching.

I also did freelance tutoring as an ACT Test Prep Coach for a class of 5 students, of which all posted scores of above 32 (the maximum is a 36), while two of them obtained the highest possible 36. Other than the ACT, I also offered freelance tutoring in GCE Ordinary Level Mathematics.

English and Italian lessons(TEFL/Tesol certified, bilingual)
I use TPR(Toatal Phisical response) a method of teaching language or vocabulary concepts by using physical movement to react to verbal input, Total physical response is often used alongside other methods and techniques. It is popular with beginners and with young learners, although it can be used with students of all levels and all age groups. a very effective way of learning a language quickly.

Nadine
German, Thai (Native) and English (Fluent) Class .
Hello there! I‘m an enthusiastic 23 year old German, who would like to teach other people German, Thai or English. I traveled a lot of countries and stayed a couple of month in Australia and New Zealand, which improved my English a lot, so I‘m even able to understand the Slangs of Australians. My mother is Thai and I grew up bilingual, that’s why my Thai and German is on a native level. I would like to teach 1 by 1, we can practice by speaking and I will correct you with grammar and words. Also you can ask me questions (e.g. cultural exchange) or any request how you would like to learn the language or class construction.

Candice
Private lessons in English for all levels.
I offer English language courses for all levels. If I am asked for academic support (from primary to university), it will mainly be a question of reviewing, with the pupil or the student, the points of the subject which pose a problem to him (grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, etc.). If I am asked for a general learning of the English language, it will be mainly, but not exclusively, a learning by dialogues in English language, which will allow the student, as and when, to acquire vocabulary, understand grammar and fix linguistic structures in your head. I also offer oral conversation classes for anyone who wants to express themselves in English more fluently and improve their oral comprehension of the language. Serious guaranteed. The course is given by videoconference (Skype, Teams, Zoom, WhatsApp, etc.)

Anusha
Economics (Secondary to University levels) and English (Primary level) Tutoring
Economics classes for University level students will be based on student's needs (some suggestions: Econometrics, Microeconomics, Quantitative Economics). For school students, it can involve advanced learning or basic Economic knowledge (aligned to student's needs). English classes will involve writing and speaking practice (based on the student's existing knowledge). I tend to explain things pretty well. I always try to assign homework for further practice. Times can be discussed with me and I do accommodate students based on mutual availability.

Spanish lessons from a Native teacher/İstanbul'da ve online özel İspanyolca dersi/ DELE/ özel yerli öğretmen / Clases de español
My Spanish lessons will be skill and grammar focused. I will help the students to develop their language skills so that they can use them in real contexts. For the DELE and Cambridge assessment lessons the students must have a good command of the language because I will prepare them to know the structure of the tests while they practice and develop the main skills and sub skills needed to have a good result. İspanyolca derslerim beceri ve dilbilgisi odaklı olacak. Öğrencilerin, dili gerçek anlamda kullanmak için dil becerilerini geliştirmelerine yardımcı olacağım. DELE dersleri için öğrencilerin iyi derecede İspanyolca bilmesi gerekir ve onları testin yapısını bilmeye hazırlayacağım ve iyi bir sonuç elde etmek için gereken temel becerilerini ve alt becerilerini çalıştıracağım.
