Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: Hello, welcome to my classroom! My name is Aly and I am passionate about education, specifically these two programs I have created: English Etcetera (ESL Tutoring) and Foreword & Shea: Mentoring for Writers. English Etcetera I am a native English speaker, Virginia Tech alumna (B.S. in Psychology, B.A. in Multimedia Journalism) and CELTA-certified ESL tutor. The goal of English Etcetera is to help clients obtain their personal and professional goals through steady improvement and analysis of English functional language, lexis, grammar, reading, listening and speaking skills. My biggest priority is to deliver quality lessons that are both entertaining and productive. With my experience as a professional writer, I have demonstrated my ability to listen closely and effectively tell stories in the English language (both in speaking and writing). I want to help you reach your professional and personal goals too (such as business and science writing, citizenship testing, passion for American entertainment ... Etcetera!) Foreword & Shea Foreword & Shea is a mentoring program for young and advanced writers which gives students power to direct their own curriculum. This program gives freedom to the mentee in deciding what writing styles they want to study and learning how to cultivate their growing voice, all in the comfort of their own home. In March 2021, I vowed to expand Foreword & Shea as a virtual and customizable mentoring experience for students Grades 3 to 12 and college students. F&S works to provide a safe and professional writing experience, motivate, edit and offer feedback on personal projects, as well as teach specific subject writing and give resources that will allow the student to succeed independently. This will also include seasonal camps, writer community platforms and guest speakers from time-to-time.

Aly is an amazing writer and teacher. She is very patient, really loves what she does and it’s an extremely nice person. She also has a great methodology and was able to personalize the lesson for myself and gave me the structure I needed, to get my writing to the next level. Totally recommended!

Aly is such a kindhearted, passionate, and hardworking individual. She is an exceptional creative, teacher, and learner herself and it is clear that her radiant positivity would be a huge asset to anyone's classroom. I've had the pleasure of being mentored by Aly for many years and I would absolutely recommend her unique skill set to any learner. She is honest, intelligent, and has one of the biggest hearts I have the pleasure of knowing. Aly is sure to give individualized attention to all students and takes great care in helping them reach their personal best.

During this time I interview the student and get to know their personality, as well as their learning preferences, strengths and weaknesses. This helps me to assess the student and ease any discomfort before our first online class.
