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

ESL/ESOL

After earning my BA with a concentration in Spanish and Italian I decided that my love of language and my strong communication skills in English, my native language, would help me in becoming a fantastic ESL instructor. After completing my professional certificate in TESOL and student teaching in Thailand, I went on to teach English in Chile, Peru, Honduras, and San Diego. I have been an ESL educator for more than seven years, and I continue teaching ESL at UCSD Extension's prestigious English Language Institute currently, where I also regularly tutor students individually. We can design our sessions to focus on speaking, listening, pronunciation, writing, reading, or any other areas that challenge you.

Grammar

Confused about split infinitives? Not sure what a dangling participle is? Having trouble with the pesky present perfect progressive tense and when to use it? Consult me, a seasoned instructor with experience teaching grammar at all levels at UCSD Extension's English Language Institute (and many other reputable institutions). I am extremely well-versed in the grammars of both English and Spanish and can help you learn the rules to make you a better speaker and writer of either language whether you are a native speaker or not!

Spanish

My experiences in language studies and acquisition have molded me into a highly qualified Spanish tutor. While living in Chilean Patagonia for a year and then in Cusco, Peru for eight months, I was very successful in learning Spanish through immersion. These long months reinforced the years of high school and undergraduate Spanish skills I had already acquired and forced me to become a better Spanish speaker than I had ever dreamed of. When I came back to San Diego I was accepted into a Spanish MA program which I subsequently graduated from as one of two Outstanding Graduate award recipients. I have several years of experience planning and teaching Spanish 101-201 at SDSU in addition to years as an English as a Second Language instructor at UCSD Extension and several institutions abroad.

Writing

Writing instructor with experience teaching composition at UCSD Extension's English Language Institute. I can help you proofread and edit your essays or other compositions for grammar, spelling, punctuation issues, and also give you suggestions as far as tone, structure, vocabulary choice, and overall style go. I can also tutor you on the elements and organization of a basic essay and help you improve your writing.

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.
