Personal Description:

I am a student currently studying Linguistics at McMaster University and previously majored in Engineering Physics. I am very proficient in both physics and math, as well as in all areas related languages such as syntax, phonetics, phonology, etc; and as such am able to help in all aspects of studying English from the grammar to perfecting pronunciation. I also have lots of experience of my own in learning languages such as Japanese, Cantonese, Latin, etc, so I am very knowledgeable in studying foreign languages.

Tutoring Experience:

2 years tutoring elementary school math and science, and high school math and physics for the charity organization SafetyNet. In particular worked with disadvantaged children, children with learning disabilities and children with no language experience.

3 years correcting and assisting with adult ESL learners' English online
1 year practising spoken English with adult ESL learners online

Tutoring Approach:

Math and physics
I primarily to follow whatever curriculum the student is working through at school. Each lesson I ask my student what areas they would like to focus on and then provide problems for them to solve in those areas. We will work through these problems together as well as go over and correct any tests or assignments that were recently completed. I will question my student throughout to explain their thoughts to ensure they have a complete understanding. At the end, homework will be assigned to ensure retention of knowledge.

ESL
Each lesson I will suggest topics for student to talk about. We will have a short conversation for each and I will make corrections and explain things where needed. At the end we will summarize the topics covered and what needs to be improved on. I will talk about techniques to use to improve as well as assign exercises to be practised for next week.
