English

I majored in English with Honors in college and am a California Credentialed English teacher. I taught high school English for over 5 years.

ESL/ESOL

While in college, I tutored ESL students (very often newcomers to America) and helped them with their English essays. I taught ELD4 (ELLs at the Intermediate-Advanced level) for 5 years as a high school English teacher. I attended numerous professional development conferences that focused on theory and instructional practices for teaching ESL/ELD during my time as a teacher. In particular, I attended seminars taught by ESL/ELD forerunners, Stephen Krashen and Kate Kinsella and earned college credit for completing coursework relating to those seminars.

Literature

I graduated from Cal State Northridge, Magna Cum Laude, from an Honors program in English/Literature. I also have a CA Single-Subject English Teaching Credential. I taught high school English for 6 years.

Proofreading

I graduated from Cal State Northridge, Magna Cum Laude, from the Honors program in English/Literature. I also have a CA Single-Subject English Teaching Credential. I taught high school English for 6 years. During this time I spent countless hours proofreading speeches, essays and other writing -- not only my own writing (personal and professional), but also the writing of hundreds of students and peers.

I also currently work as a transcriber (past 6 months), transcribing primarily criminal/legal files. I prepare transcripts of interviews of suspects and witnesses to be used by lawyers in preparation for court proceedings. The reports I prepare follow a specific style guidelines and need to proofread extensively before submission.

Public Speaking

I competed in high school speech and debate in primarily oratorical/platform events, and was a state champion and national finalist in original oratory. For ten years, I was an assistant high school speech and debate coach for one of the largest teams in nation, that was also one of the top 5 teams in California. I coached original oratory and expository speaking mostly, and interpretation and debate events from time to time. I have coached numerous state champions and finalists and national finalists during my time as a coach.

Vocabulary

I graduated from Cal State Northridge, Magna Cum Laude, in the English/Literature Honors program. I also have a CA Single-Subject English Teaching Credential. I taught high school English for 6 years.

During this time, I attended numerous professional conferences and district-held trainings to develop my skills as a professional in many areas, but certainly in the area of vocabulary development for students. Notably, I attended the CABE conference twice, seminars led by Kathleen Kenfield, Stephen Krashen, and Kate Kinsella -- leaders in Language Arts, Vocabulary and Engish Language Acquisition and Development theories and practices. I also completed and submitted coursework to Chapman University for these conferences to demonstrate application and mastery of concepts learned.

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.
