Hello Student - It's great to meet you!

The subjects listed in my title are those in which I am the most experienced and knowledgeable in getting you improvement results in those areas as a tutor.

I am a certified and experienced ESL tutor working towards a Bachelor's degree in English to become an ESL teacher. My students' native languages include Spanish, Arabic, and Korean. I understand and help them get through the frustrations of written and conversational English, also known as verb conjugation, and it gives me great satisfaction to see the improvement of students over time. As a native English speaker I understand the challenges facing the student new to one of the world's most common languages. It is my goal to assist the student in every aspect using a variety of methods including worksheets I have kept from my prior tutoring. Reference is readily available upon contact.


I ask that you please be as specific as possible in giving me details in the subject you are asking for so that I may be as effective as possible in giving you the best results. Please tell me what you are looking for in help for the subject as well as a day and time preference if you have one so I can better accommodate you.

I look forward to meeting you and seeing your successful improvement first hand over time. Thank You.

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.

English

As a tutor of English, my goal is to aid the student in improving upon their English skills though speaking, reading, writing, and proofreading. As sometimes areas of English can be forgotten, I help in those areas so the student can become familiar again with those rules.

The English language has many forms and rules of grammar that native speakers at times remember when it comes to writing, however, it is the forms of words and how we use them to express ourselves when speaking. For example, nouns, verbs, determiners (a/an), etc.; the difference in to, too, and two; and using different choices of words with the thesaurus.

ESL/ESOL

I have been a volunteer ESL tutor for the past year and a half - 2 years through the Laubach program. The majority of the students I have worked with speak Spanish, the minority, about 4-6 persons, whose first language is Arabic. My focus with them has been pronunciation in speaking, in addition to reading and writing. Methods of instruction include flash cards, workbooks, picture and written dictionary for fast translation. Reference available upon contact.

Flute

I possess 5+ years experience playing the flute in middle school and high school marching band. I am proficient in reading sheet music, key placement and octave tone.

Grammar

English has always been a good subject for me. When it comes to grammar I can notice misspellings, where the apostrophe, comma goes, etc. When I read a sentence that does not seem right to me I re-read it and observe where such things as punctuation could be missing.

Spelling

Spelling has always come easy for me.
On the occasions where some words are closely spelled I am normally aware of this -
If I am having difficulty, I will sound out the word before resorting to a dictionary.
