     With M.A.'s in both TESL and English Lit behind a career of teaching ESL to 
internationals and immigrants, I'll help you effectively assess your needs and 
reach your language goals.* 
 [*current tutees include an LBL scientist, a housewife, a law student and a h.s. 
junior]

     Whether in stronger oral or written communication, instruction is 
personalized and efficient (= no wasted time).  Accent reduction is a speciality 
of mine.  I love helping students use English more accurately and fluently -- 
and with more confidence.

     I also specialize in crafting successful Statements of Purpose for college or 
grad school admission.  Coaching for professional presentations and the TSE 
is also available as is manuscript copy editing.

     My rates are reasonable and several day and evening times are available. 
There is no charge for the first meeting.

     I look forward to working with you!  Suzan  M.A., M.A.

I love the kids who need the most help.  I am an
experienced, credentialed teacher, taking a break from the
classroom. I have succeeded with children where often others
have not been able to, and have successfully reached the
''difficult'' children, or the children who have different
learning styles, as well as the children who do well in
academic settings. I have helped children and teenagers who
absolutely hate school! I can provide testimonials from
other parents.

I'm happy to email you my resume and a description of my
services if you'd like.  I will say up front that I charge
more than some tutors but I am a trained, credentialed
teacher and can be more helpful in less time than many.  The
best compliment I have ever gotten from a parent was that
the change in her son was ''miraculous.''  That's why I do 
it!
