Your success is my success! I love teaching and will work hard to make sure you achieve your goals and have fun while doing it. I believe working with a student/client is a partnership, and partnerships must include mutual respect, honesty and trust. You will get that from me and much more. I also believe what you put in to anything you do is what you will get out. I will put in 100 percent! I have taught/tutored people of all ages. My students/clients are from the United States as well as from countries around the world. I look forward to an opportunity to work with you!

ESL (English as a Second Language) Lessons

I was for a one Month in NC and Courtney helped me to grow up and take a great progress in my English, without a doubt this was the best experience I've had learning. Her office in Raleigh is beautiful and so comfortable. She is sweet and very worried about preparing the lessons to suit you and check your progress class to class. She is amazing¡¡ if you are fortunate to know and take classes with her, you'll have a great experience of fast learning, meet a great teacher who will ensure a plan focused in you, and the most important, you going to met a great person with the natural essence of help and teach.

ESL (English as a Second Language) Lessons

Actually, I have not taken a Courtney’s lesson yet, but her quick and clear response is always helpful. Also, she is kind and always listens to my concerns. I hope I can practice my English with her someday in near future.

I learned a lot of what she taught me in the English as a Second Language class. I hope she comes back one day to keep teaching to us. Based on my experience as a teacher, she has an excellent methodology to teach a class.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My pricing is 40 dollars an hour for an individual lesson. Rates may vary depending on a students needs and if there is travel time involved. Nothing is set in stone so please do not hesitate to talk to me about your budget and I will try to work with you. I put a great deal of time and energy into preparing for each and every lesson prior to us sitting down together. My lessons are customized specifically to each student and his or her goals. The cost of my lesson planning is included in my hourly rate. I am a firm believer that a well planned out lesson is a successful lesson. You can trust that you are getting much more than just our one hour time together. My lessons include handouts and copies of everything we cover, as well as take home material. If a client would like to pre pay and schedule 5 sessions upfront, I am happy to offer a reduction in my hourly rate. I look forward to helping you achieve your English speaking and proficiency goals while also having fun doing it!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I work with students one on one or in small group settings. I typically start the first trial session with an oral and written exercise. This helps me get to know a prospective client and assess his/her ESL level. I am also using this time to listen to pronunciation, grammar, intonation and fluency. During this first session we will discuss a students goals and objectives in detail. I spend a great deal of time lesson planning and I am always prepared! I make the lessons relevant to a persons life. In that way my lessons are fun and engaging. You can be confident that every minute of our time together will be used in a positive and constructive way. As I get to know each student/client better ( and this will take a few sessions), I can taylor a program specific to that client's needs. I build upon strengths, while identifying and working on areas that need improvement or causing difficulties. I know from experience that if a student is willing to work hard during the session and do the work that I assign as homework ( it's fun) they will absolutely make significant gains, feel more confident and get the results they are looking.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am a certified ESL instructor. I have a 120 hour Advanced TEFL certification/ License number # 1709191. I also have a 30 hour Teaching Young Learners Certification (same license number) . I received my IELTS ( International English Language Testing System) certification on June 5, 2018. I completed a training program with an emphasis on tutoring basic literacy and English as a second language sponsored by a ProLiteracy America affiliate and conducted by a ProLiteracy America Certified Trainer. As a result I am certified to instruct. I am an independent contractor/instructor for the Triangle Literacy Council. I was also certified to tutor adult ESL through the Triangle Literacy Council. Currently, I am teaching a beginning ESL class with 25 student and intermediate/advanced ESL class with 8 to 12 students. I tutor all levels of ESL students privately or in a small group setting. I can do this in person or remotely via the internet.
