I am a MA graduate of Teachers College at Columbia University with meaningful classroom and tutoring experience.
I try to get my students to do lots of talking and I catch and correct nearly every mistake made. :)
Students and I decide on news links or articles online and we either discuss these articles or go through them together to work on pronunciation and to pick up new vocabulary words and to chat or argue about issues.
We also sometimes work with the book I wrote (New York City Sucks but You'll Wanna Come Here Anyway). I give my students free copies of the book via pdf file and it helps as a vocabulary booster.
I have my own TOEFL blog - search for: gauss toefl advice. My students make remarkable progress. I once had a student who jumped 12 points on his overall score. I also have experience with the IELTS.
Hope to hear from you.
$20/hr. or 3 hours for $50. I ask that we meet at least 2 hours at a time.
I care deeply about my students and enjoy seeing them making progress - becoming capable of expressing themselves more confidently.

I offer a free first meeting of about 1 and 1/2 hour. If you feel I can help you, you may contact me later and set up more lessons. I keep things low-pressure.
