Language and Communication are my specialties.

I hold a Masters Degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages and have taught ESL: Reading, Writing, Speaking, Listening and Pronunciation in both adult and community college settings. I studied French for 8 years and lived in France as well, where I did private tutoring and taught English to business people. I have more than 20 years of teaching experience. I work with students on a one to one basis in order to uncover where the gaps in understanding exist. My approach is often multi-modal and always creative, as I believe that the pathways to understanding a particular subject area and the ability to progress in that area may come from other more familiar disciplines. For example, I am a visual person. I learned to write well when I was able to connect my visual abilities with the need and desire to write.

I have also worked in film and video, am an independent filmmaker with numerous awards and other credits. I can assist with some of the current editing programs: Final Cut Pro, Avid, Premiere, etc.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ESL/ESOL

My tutoring in ESL includes all skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking. I emphasize whatever the student
needs most and work with the student at his or her current level.

Video Production

I am an award-winning film/video maker with numerous grants for production and distribution to my credit.
I am most comfortable teaching editing on either Premiere or Final Cut Pro systems.
I can definitely help you get started on one of these programs and if you are feeling shy about jumping in.

Writing

I participated in several Writing Process Seminars for teachers, as graduate course work, in addition to my Masters Program course work.

I struggled with writing as a young person, but discovered the secret to being able to write through another medium that I loved. I do believe that the secret can be applied to help anyone who struggles with writing.

Great tutor. — Roberta's reviews drew me detailed pictures about her lessons and my kids participation during the last section. I greatly appreciate her time focusing on teaching my kids and time for the detailed report. With her report, I can help my kids put more focusing, or pay more attention in the areas they were lacking off. ...
