Thank you for looking at my profile. I have had a number of years of experience teaching and tutoring. Aside from private tutoring, I have been a tutor for elementary and middle school children in an after school program which was funded by the No Child Left Behind Act. I taught both Language Arts and Math skills. My private tutoring classes have included elementary subjects, pre-algebra, algebra 1, reading comprehension, essay writing, English grammar, conversational English and Spanish grammar and conversation.
I spent a year in Spain where I was teaching English and perfecting my Spanish. I have an internationally recognized English teaching certificate from TEFL/TESOL International. I have taught one-on-one classes for both children and adults and small group classes. These classes have focused on grammar as well as conversational lessons. I also taught for two years in a private language school for adults in Berkeley, CA. I worked with students from all over the world and of all ages (over 16). I learned a great deal about teaching methods and ways to communicate clearly, regardless of the background of the student. While I really enjoyed my grammar and conversational classes my favorite was the academic writing class. In this class I assisted students in writing papers, letters of intention, cover letters for job applications, vocabulary acquisition, and test preparation for competency tests such as TOEFL and IELTS.
I am also a graduate of San Francisco State University. My studies included Anthropology and Spanish and I was placed on the Dean's List for four consecutive semesters. Please contact me with any questions or interests. I look forward to hearing from you!
