Hello and thanks for taking a moment to read my profile. Please allow me to introduce myself and share my abilities.

In the area of education, I've taught middle school, high school and college students in a variety of subjects and disciplines. Teaching at advanced levels as well as tutoring those with slight to medium learning disabilities has prepared me to assist with a wide range of learning levels. Areas in English include, but aren't limited to: reading literacy, academic writing, spelling and vocabulary, grammar, Business Communications, ESL, basic test-taking methodology, resume building and business plan practices.

I hold a bachelor of science degree from UCLA with a dual Linguistics and English major as well as a Masters degree in English Education from Syracuse University. I have taught and tutored at schools and colleges in both New York and California.

As a business professional in marketing for over 15 years and as a skilled educator, my goal is to tutor in a friendly, fun and comfortable environment to instill confidence toward your subject matter while building a strong learning foundation. I'll happily adjust to your best learning style for your continued success. Let me know how I can help.

Thanks for reading and I look forward to working with you!

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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

English

Degrees in English Education as well as in Linguistics and English have prepared me well for English teaching and tutoring.

As a business professional, day-to-day communication requires a strong grasp of English communication in both verbal and written forms. I have taught and/or tutored in many branches of the English discipline -- reading, writing, English as a foreign language, literacy - at both grade school and college levels.

My tutoring style is to assess the best way for a student to learn with open communication and to bring clarity and confidence to any task, no matter how challenging.

Marketing

Working in the marketing and advertising industry for over 15 years, I am well versed in the marketing field. Most recently, I have served as the National Media Director for FOX Broadcasting promoting all prime-time television shows nationwide.

Currently, I am the Media Director at a dot com e-commerce media buying agency handling performance marketing in all mediums.
