I am an experienced, certificated teacher and tutor who has enjoyed teaching for many years. I have taught whole classes, small groups and individual students of all ages. I love learning and teaching, am very enthusiastic about helping others understand and practice English/Language Arts skills. I have many fun activities for learning and practicing reading, writing,speaking, and listening. English is my first language. I enjoy helping others read, write, speak, listen and build vocabulary in English. I do know some Spanish and French and enjoy working with people learning English as a second language.
I have a TESOL (Teaching English as a Second Language) certificate, have traveled a lot, and enjoy learning other languages. I have the background, experience, certification, and enthusiasm to be the tutor for you!
My tutoring methods are friendly, fun, and effective. For example, my student and I may play a match it game with important vocabulary words and their definitions. We also might do "popcorn" reading, taking turns to read important passages signaling a change in the reader by saying ,"popcorn!"
I introduce helpful prewriting exercises, such as a Venn Diagram, or "Brainstorm" bubbles, to stimulate and organize the writing process.
I have many resources from my years of teaching and my training. These resources(flashcards, for example) will help you excel in reading and writing skills for any subject in which reading comprehension and writing are useful.
