Elementary (K-6th)

I've been working with elementary-aged children since I was in elementary school myself, where I participated in a program that paired students to help each other improve reading skills. My patience and love of children allow me to view every interaction with a child as a chance for both teaching and learning. I am confident tutoring all kindergarten through 6th grade subjects.

English

I have been tutoring English language and literature for almost six years. I have had students of all different ages and backgrounds, from elementary school children writing their first sentences and paragraphs to college-level and post-grad students writing assignments for class and grad school applications. I specialize in explaining grammar points in simple language, seeing the 'big picture' of organization, and making sure that content and analysis are appropriate for the assignment.

ESL/ESOL

I have an M.A. in Applied Linguistics and Teaching English as a Second Language, and currently work as an instructor in English language at UCSD. I have a B.A. from UCLA in Linguistics and Philosophy, and I also minored in Teaching English as a Second Language. I have taken classes in teaching Reading and Writing, Speaking and Listening, and Grammar, in addition to studying the methods of teaching and the sounds and structure of English. I have been an instructor for academic reading and writing classes as well as conversational and vocabulary classes. I have tutored undergraduate students, children, and adults, and have assisted both native and non-native speakers with developing reading and writing skills. I have taught all levels, from very basic beginners to advanced conversational classes of adults. I have tutored school-aged children in reading and writing, with an emphasis on vocabulary and developing fluency. My education has helped me to develop a thorough understanding of the workings of English and the makings of a good English teacher, and my teaching experience has given me the practical knowledge to apply that education.

Grammar

As an instructor of English as a Second Language, I have studied not only English grammar, but the grammar of other languages as well. I specialize in tailoring the level of my instructions and corrections to the student. I focus on the most important and common errors first, and then move on to the more specific and nuanced grammatical and mechanical choices. I endeavor to explain grammar in a logical and direct manner so that students can use what they already know to begin to find and correct their own mistakes.

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.
