My name is Terra! I live in the United States in the state of Arkansas. I am a recent graduate of the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville. I have been tutoring and teaching English language learners from all over the world since my undergraduate years.
I have been:
- A teacher's assistant (in an intensive English department)
- ESL tutor
- Adult ESL teacher
- Conversation partner
- K-12 long-term substitute teacher
During my master's degree, I worked as an ESL tutor at my local literacy council and eventually became an ESL teacher through the AmeriCorps program. I have taught grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, listening, writing and many other areas. My students came from all over and have made me a better teacher, but there is still a lot I want to learn.
I am excited to start this new experience with students from around that world. Teaching is one of my first loves and nothing makes me happier than the "ah-ha" moment when something new clicks in a student's mind.
As for my hobbies and interests, I like baking, crochet, writing, drawing, learning new languages, insightful conversations, and teaching myself the ukulele occasionally, and meeting new people.
- Master's in Education in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL)
- Bachelors of Arts in Creative Writing
My lessons will be open, flexible, and will cater to your needs. Free to approach with any questions or problems they need help with as well.
I love language and I want my students to gain a new excitement for English and the motivation to use the language as a tool to open new doors in their lives.
Let's learn together!
