Thank you from my Urdu speaking pupil in Texas!
Joan is very professional and she provides several examples and resources to practice after class. It is great that she speaks Spanish because she can explain in Spanish if needed.Oct 3, 2018VerifiedESL & Spanish Instructor's reply
Thank you to this food and beverage technologist in Ohio.
I found Joan to be super professional over the phone and in texts at a price that was a little less than going rate and she sent me her resume as wellJun 15, 2018VerifiedESL & Spanish Instructor's reply

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?The first step is to get to know my student and his/her needs. Then I suggest choices of how we may go about the process. We have choices in textbooks, online sources, topics, etc.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have English and Spanish single subject credentials at the secondary level. I also obtained a bilingual/cross-cultural multi-subject credential by studying language acquisition, and how to teach it. I also have permission to teach basic subjects at the junior college level. My resume is available at the time we begin to know each other.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?After many years in the regular classroom, I decided that I wanted to work from home as a teacher, and worked for Educational Testing Service to score the TOEIC, which is similar to the TOEFL. However, I wanted to work with students, instead of rating their language without getting to know them and help them. I taught to the TOEFL for an online company. Now, I work for Accent Center, Russia, as a Skype English and Business English teacher. My freelance work has just begun!
