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 pointers that should help. I would be happy to help teach you English, tailored to meet your needs and interests. I have earned my B.A. in Linguistics, and my TESOL certification. 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!

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.

Attention: I will be raising informal tutoring prices an extra 10 ITC per hour-long session (including package sessions) on March 1.

Please try to schedule your appointments at least 48 hours in advance to ensure availability. Thank you.
