I prepare students for the critical reading, writing, and essay portionsall forms of English-language standardized tests, including ACT, SAT, TOEFL, IELTS, SSAT, and GRE. TOEFL and IELTS prep also includes plus listening and speaking practice, focusing on phonics, fluency, and expression. Lessons are customized for each student based on a pre-test/evaluation given during the first lesson. I teach students to write organized, clear, convincing essays (a skill that is valuable far beyond the scope of these tests), to read for content, to recognize and correct grammatical errors in sentences, and to use and understand new vocabulary. Frequent, timed practice tests are an integral part of lessons.
I am uniquely qualified to teach English and prepare students for these exams because I am a native English speaker with a clear accent and because I grew up in the US, so I am very familiar with standardized testing in America. I am an experienced teacher, and my work in Athens as a copy editor speaks to my knowledge of the language in practice, especially written language.
I am an American living in Greece. I have worked as a copy editor for 20+ years in Athens, specializing in financial periodicals, academic works, EU law, and university theses.
