English

English can be a difficult language to learn. There are several different learning and teaching methods. English as a second language should be taught differently from the typical English teaching methods in the educational system. It is best to find the appropriate method for an individual.

I am a native English speaker. I have studied other languages and achieved an ESL/TESOL certification. I can help with the different learning and teaching methods.

ESL/ESOL

I have achieved an ESL/TESOL certification from Oxford Seminars. I have tutored speakers of several different languages in English. Tutoring included reading, writing, and pronunciation. Tutoring needs vary from different students. I can help with addressing an individual's needs.

Proofreading

Proofreading is very important. There are many issues to be considered. You should place a limited amount of trust in your computer for error correction. Some questions to be asked when proofreading are:

Is there an errant use of homophones?
Could a phrase be better stated?
Is the right word being used?
What is the purpose of the document?
Who is the intended reader?

There are many other questions/issues to be considered when proofreading.

Reading

Reading comprehension is related to vocabulary and can include the use of idioms or phrases that may seem illogical.

Reading also includes how sentences and paragraphs can lead to the main idea. This can be problematic if missed.

Vocabulary

Vocabulary can be problematic pertaining to synonyms, idioms,and appropriate word choices pertaining to the person you are speaking to.

There are many words with various synonyms used by different individuals. I can help with vocabulary comprehension, study methods,and appropriate use in different situations.

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.
