All of Gretchen’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Gretchen’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

English

I am very comfortable tutoring all aspects of writing. This includes grammar, spelling, word choices, and sentences structure. I will convey this to my student in a calm, patient manner.

ESL/ESOL

I am very interested in helping speakers of other languages learn English. Although my experience is in teaching Spanish, French and Russian, I realize teaching ESL is quite different. But my teaching abilities and foreign language knowledge have been a big aid in ESL. I have been tutoring ESL since June 2011. I have extensive knowledge about how to teach ESL, through Internet research, reading numerous books and I have collected/developed many varied activities for learning English as a Second Language. Please let me know if I can be of help to you or your child!

Grammar

I have been interested in and very competent in English grammar throughout my school and adult years. My experience is that I majored in English for a year in college and taught sophomore English for one year.

Proofreading

My strengths in school and work mostly involved written communication. This includes grammar, proofreading and sentence structure. I am a former teacher of high school Spanish and English as well as elementary age home-schooled students. This experience helps me to tutor the subjects patiently, calmly and with positive reinforcement.

Reading

I am very qualified to tutor reading. I am not impatient or pushy but gentle and calm in guiding my student to deciphering the words being read.

Spanish

I taught 4 years of high school Spanish, 1st & 2nd year. I also have experience with small, home-schooled groups and I currently have been tutoring Spanish since June 2011. I am experienced in teaching reading, writing, speaking and listening through a variety of activities that I can gear towards the strengths and/or needs of the student.

Writing

I am very competent to tutor all aspects of writing and reading. This includes grammar, literature, proofreading, reading and writing. I briefly majored in English in college and it was my strongest subject throughout my school years.

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.
