All three of my children used the services of Pat Lewis from ColPrep Tutoring for college applications and essay work. Because Pat taught my son English in high school, we were familiar with her teaching style and that she actually taught kids HOW to write - so we didn't hesitate when it came time to seek assistance for those college essays. When we wanted a tutor to assist with AP test prep, and AP subject test tutoring, Pat helped there too! This is really a recommendation from our children, since they drove the decision to use Pat's services. They felt comfortable with her style and she kept them on track during the college application process. In fact, when it was time to apply to graduate school, my daughter called on Pat again to review her essays. We highly recommend Pat and her team. They care about the students and it shows. There are many options for your children for college preparation and we all want the best for our kids, but I'd highly recommend that you give Pat a call! Vickie M.

I have been working with Jill for a couple of months so far (and I'll keep working with her in the future). I'm originally from Spain but when I moved to Raleigh a few months ago I realized that, even though I had a good level of written English, my communication skills (listening and speaking) were not good enough. I reached out to Jill in order to help me out with this and from the very first moment, she pinpointed my weaknesses and prepared tailored lessons that are really helping me to articulate much better, speak more fluently and reduce my strong Spanish accent. Jill is very approachable, flexible with her student's needs, very committed and she has a great command of the language. I really like that she doesn't follow a book in her lessons and prepares ad-hoc materials based on my specific needs instead. Moreover her lessons are really enjoyable. I was able to see how my communication skills improved after a few lessons. In summary, Jill is being instrumental in my integration of the language, therefore I strongly recommend her as the great English teacher she is.
Shawn Mullin is the best English teacher I ever had. Thanks to the clarity of his explanations, thanks to the way how he illustrated by examples the meanings of the words, thanks to the good humor he expresses in each class, you can feel as a student that time passes very quickly in his classes. It's hard to forget the meaning of the idioms and meaning of words because he knows how to explain them in a way that remain engraved in your memory. For his long experience, he knows wich are the most difficult issues when you are learning English and he knows how teach these with a grace that make these less difficult. I feel privileged to have had an English teacher as Shawn.
I offer Chinese and English lessons, I am a native Chinese who can speak fluent English. I can teach both kids and adults.
I am a Raleigh based ESL certified teacher, and I received my certification through Oxford seminars. I began my ESL journey in January as I want to eventually teach students overseas, in Europe, Asia, or UAE. While I am in the states, I would love to help local students who want to learn English as a secondary language. It can be difficult not speaking the native language in the country you reside. My goal is to assist you on your journey with learning the English language and becoming fluent in the language. My current client includes an adult Turkish native speaker who is eager to learn the English language.
I prepare tailored lessons for each individual student based on their goals and needs.
I tutor all aspects of English -- essay writing, reading comprehension, grammar, vocabulary, and basic sentence structure. My focus has been with elementary school kids; however, I can easily tutor middle school, high school, and even college-level students. I am experienced, hard working, and receptive to receiving input from parents. I review grammar, parts of speech, assign writing exercises, and explain the benefits of variety in writing. I will review inferences as well as figurative language with the idea of incorporating simile, metaphor, hyperbole and personification into your student's writing. I also have a set program in place that demonstrates strategies for writing better sentences, progressing from grammar school level strategies all the way to high school level strategies, regardless of your student's grade level.
I specialize in helping out with French, English, and mathematics. I am currently a freshman at UNCW, and I have placed into higher levels than most students of my age in all three of these subjects.
