About Colleen

I've been helping people with their English via online services since 2007, and I can help you too! I have a degree in Linguistics, with a specialization in sociolinguistics -- if you think your English is awkward, or just not right, I can give you some tutoring that should help. Conversations in English are a little bit different than in other languages, and I would be happy to help you improve. I earned my B.A. in Linguistics in 2012, and my TESOL certification recently. Currently, I work at a S. Korean company teaching English online, but I'm excited to teach students from all over the world with italki, since I learn more than one language myself! I would be happy to help teach you English, tailored to meet your needs and interests. The best way to get in touch with me is through email, so be sure that you click the email box when you send me a message through italki! I don't really check my italki mailbox consistently, and I would love to talk to you! Cancellation Policy -- I'm very lenient when it comes to cancellation. As always, the sooner you let me know, the better, but I am willing to reschedule up until a third of the session has passed. For half-hour sessions, 10 minutes; for hour sessions, 20 minutes. Any requests after this time frame are liable to be denied. Thank you for your cooperation. Currently, I do not offer trial sessions, but please look for them in the future! **Attention: I will be raising tutoring prices an extra 5 ITC per hour-long session (including package sessions) on March 31. **Please try to schedule your appointments at least 48 hours in advance to ensure availability. Thank you. **For Informal Tutoring: Please already have a topic. As an informal tutor, it is not my responsibility to provide material.
