Elementary (K-6th)

I spent 3 years as a Teacher Aide in charge of small groups, teaching skills in reading, spelling, and writing to 2nd and 3rd graders. I taught five years in Kindergarten in English reading, writing, and listening comprehension. I kept detailed records on each student in the areas in need of improvement and in progress made during the academic year. I am patient, kind, and able to establish a good rapport with younger children.

ESL/ESOL

During my five-year tenure at Anglo-Continental at Pitzer College, Claremont California, I taught ESL to students from Italy, Australia, Germany, Japan, China, Indonesia, and France. I worked with Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced students in grammar, writing, vocabulary, speaking, and listening skills. During the last 15 years, I have taught at Cal Poly English Language Institute, Pomona, California. I worked with beginning and intermediate students in reading, writing, speaking, grammar, and vocabulary, as well as spelling and idioms elective classes. I received my certification in TESOL March 2011 with high honors. In addition, I have tutored community college students in test-preparation and in essay writing. With an interest in community work, I have been a volunteer Literacy tutor through the Glendora Public Library. I have always received comments from students that I am patient, kind, and clear with English instruction and help.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
