If you need to cancel a lesson, please call/e-mail the night before for a morning lesson, or in the morning for an afternoon or evening lesson. Thank you.
Richard is a professional tutor and always well prepared. He also has a good personality. I could learn English, American culture and even techniques for leaning through the lessons with enjoyment. One of the impressive words I was taught was that to learn effectively is to be a good listener. I would highly recommend this great tutor!
He always prepares something for the lesson and teaches very efficiently. He sincerely cares and helps for student's study goal!! Highly recommend him!
He checked my resume and gave me great suggestions for using effective words. That teaching style just what I was looking for the tutoring session. He is a very experienced-ESL teacher; if you are ESL person and need help for learning English, he is the ideal teacher for you. Thanks R.P!
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.
I have been working with several students both at my college and privately on their resumes. I have taught several workshops in which I discuss the appropriate vocabulary of a resume and a cover letter. I have had several international students who ask for business role playing (ie use of correct idioms) as well. In my Public Speaking class students practice mock interviews.
I have been teaching a standardized test review at my school for the past 3 years. I teach a 1 month orientation that focuses on: study skills review, reading comprehension practice, writing the essay and HS math review. I currently have a student in my school that I am teaching and practicing with, particularly the "how to's" of constructing the CBEST essay. We also spend a great deal of time examining vocabulary by practicing synonyms, antonyms and descriptive language.
I taught 3rd,5th and 6th grade for ten years in a public school in California. I am licensed and credentialed.
I have taught from 3rd-6th grade Math in the Little Lake school district. I believe all students can succeed in Math, if they have a one-on-one teacher that shares simple strategies. Most of the elementary Math is about building skills in Math concepts.
I have taught every level of ESL from the beginning to the advanced multiple times. I teach a 5 day 5 hour intensive ESL class at a local college in Los Angeles. Each year I teach over 1000 hours of ESL, including TOEFL test prep.
I have taught anatomy, medical terminology and NCLEX test prep for the past 3 years to nursing students at CBD College in L.A., a vocational school. I have adapted medical textbooks and taught a 1-hour medical textbook review to each module in each semester.
I have taught English 102- Public Speaking to college students studying for their AA degrees at CBD College in Los Angeles for 3 years. I also taught a "truncated" 5 week version of the course to HS students preparing for college entry at USC, through their Upward Bound program.
As an ESL language teacher with over 17 years of teaching experience, I teach pronunciation and tongue positions to all my ESL students. It is imperative for these students, for example, to understand that the "th" blend in English that occurs in words such as "this, that," "other, mother," and "south, north" requires their tongue to push out and come out of their mouth when saying the "th" for correct pronunciation.
I have helped elementary-middle school and college students develop appropriate study skills. My strategies include teaching them how to preread a chapter by looking at topic names, subtopics, captions and photos. I also share a strategy called QAD- question answer detail, after reading a long paragraph- write a simple question, simple answer, fill in with bullet points as details. These strategies and more get the student writing and absorbing comprehension.
I have tutored several students on various standardized exams including the SAT, PSAT, NCLEX, TOEFL and TEAS. As part of a 1 month orientation at CBD College in L.A. I prepared students for the basic skills exam. the TEAS is an aptitude test which asks for differentiation of vocabulary, study skills, math skills and most of all critical thinking skills. I teach every student how to be a proficent reader and writer and how to make note and be aware of academic testing language. The students at WyzAnt will be well served by my writing, reading and test prep review.
The TOEFL is a standardized exam that is a test of the students English proficiency. I have taught and tutored many students in both standardized exams prep and in TOEFL prep. I believe the key is practicing writing and conversation. The writing will strengthen your vocabulary and reading comprehension. Practicing conversation is an essential skill needed to be successful on the exam.
