Tutoring ESL writing

Tutoring students one on one in ESL writing is a little different than teaching a class in ESL writing. When I was completing my degree in college, I worked at a writing center on campus that helps students with their academic writing needs. I tutored students from many different subjects, backgrounds and age levels. Our instructors at Phoenix English can help you with any academic paper or presentation that you are preparing. We can proofread and coach individuals as well as groups of business professionals on how to best write a paper or give a presentation. Check out this post from TESOL International for tips on how to tutor students in ESL writing.
