Learn with the best. My expertise is far ranging, earning me the titles of Grammar Queen and Master Teacher. Twice named Teacher of the Year.
I love to learn. You will find my enthusiasm contagious. I will adapt my lessons to your preferred learning style. You will discover that you are understanding and applying material that previously you managed to memorize but never understood. You will also gain important study strategies that will make you a more effective and efficient student, achieving more in less time.
My background is characterized by diversity. Diversity in
- culture backgrounds. I have taught in the United States and in Japan.
- academic preparedness. I have worked with at-risk and gifted students.
- academic goals. I have worked with individuals pursuing their GED as well as those in doctoral programs.
- subjects: English, writing, journalism, education, accounting, history, speech.
My greatest strengths are in all things English (writing, reading comprehension, grammar), study skills and strategies, test preparation (writing and reading sections) and career development.
A recent supervisor noted "Hire Trisha and you will gain a master teacher with the professional and personal attributes that make her an asset to any educational program." Let me help you reach your educational goals.
Mastering education basics opens the doors to endless possibilities and is critical to becoming an enthusiastic lifelong learner. For the past five years, I have worked extensively with elementary school students, tutoring all subjects. My students reflect a wide range of abilities, goals and learning styles. Some students want to become better spellers; others, to understand math; and still others, to learn to read. I have worked and had success with them all.
My credentials include an undergraduate teaching certification, graduate work in reading and a full SEI (structured English immersion) endorsement.
My individualized approach is based on the student’s preferred learning style. So many of my students find that, for the first time, they aren’t simply trying to memorize; they actually understand. Together, we have opened doors previously closed to them.
Do you want to speak English more fluently? Do you need practice hearing a native English speaker so that you can better understand the spoken word? Do you want to untangle the challenges of English grammar - with its many rules and exceptions? Do you want to read and write English better? Regardless of your goal, I can help you to reach it - while making learning fun, engaging and practical. In the past four years, I have worked extensively with English language learners with various skills levels and goals. I also lived in Japan for a year and taught English to preschoolers and to adults, and every age in between.
I am a native English speaker with exceptional communication skills and command of grammar. In addition, I have earned my ESL endorsement from the Arizona Department of Education.
Public speaking is a skill - which means both bad news and good news. The bad news is that most people do not have a natural ability for this skill. In fact, most people list public speaking as their #1 fear. The good news is that because public speaking is a skill, it can be taught. You can improve. You might even learn to enjoy it.
Let me use my academic background in communications, including public speaking, my extensive successful experience as a public speaker, and my demonstrated record of teaching public speaking to others to help you become an effective and comfortable public speaker.
What are the causes of deviant behavior? What are the consequences of racial and gender identity? These are but two of the myriad of questions that sociology explores and that I examined as an undergraduate minoring in sociology.
In more recent years, I have taught sociology at the community college level, and continue to study sociology independently.
Excellent, Flexible, Very Knowledgeable Tutor — I hired Trisha to work with my high school freshman who was struggling with AP History.
