Sonoma State University/SIT - TESOL certificate (Other)
I have an Masters in English/TESOL (Teaching English as a Second Language) from San Francisco State University, a TESOL certificate, a teaching credential in ESL for adults, and a Bachelors in Anthropology from UC Berkeley. I've taught for 5 years in community-based ESL classes in the Bay Area, and have logged more than 250 hours of tutoring. I'm currently an English (ESL) instructor at Santa Rosa Junior College and City College of San Francisco. It has been a true pleasure to facilitate my students' learning.

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.
