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

Bible Studies

As a community service I teach the bible to many people of all ages. Whether they have some knowledge or are just starting out, I have been studying the bible for ove 20 years and have been successful in helping others to learn to read and apply God's word in their own life to benefit from it fully. I am knowledgable about the characters and the theme of the bible as well as the principles it teaches inorder to help oneself be a better person. The historical and modern day infomation is very interesting and real when related to our day. I belive I can assist those who have an interest in learning more about this subject.

Career Development

I've assisted my ESL student to navigate the higher education experience and showed them many career opportunities in and outside the class over time that has helped them to acquire work right away while studying as well as gain confidence and feel successful.

CBEST

I am an ESL teacher and have had to take this test to work at an Adult Ed school, so I have first hand experience. I understand how to portion out the time to get passing results. I know what the test takers are looking for in the essay and how to tactically approach the math and reading sections to get the highest scores.

Cosmetology

I have been a cosmetologist since 1991, although I let my license go a few years ago I keep up on current practices. I have a working knowledge and access to state board material and practices in order to assist students with test taking needs.

Phonics

I have been working as a literacy tutor for over ten years with READ Ventura. I show students from the beginning sounds of the alphabet and identifying letters to word families and beyond. It takes awhile for students to grasp the ideas and concepts in English because, like many other languages, we don't have a one sound/one letter rule. However, with some basic rules and practice they can identify and learn and build until they can form the proper sound/letter combinations and begin reading. It's truly a joy on my part to see them accomplish such a feat at time in advanced years.

Public Speaking

I work for the local college where I live and have given several presentations in workshops to my peers. I have also presented at conferences through CATESOL. I'm a literacy tutor and for fundraising events have had to present to potential donors. I feel this experience along with classes in public speaking qualify me to assist student in these matters.

Speech

I have studied linguistics and different facets of langage in order to understand the basic mechanics of pronunciationa and accent reddution. I understand the places where people of different cultures may have potential articulation problems. I can help them due to my 10+ experience in working with international students. I possess an MA in TESOL and a TESL certifcate. I also have a background in literacy which helps a great deal in the basic fundamentals of phonics.

Study Skills

I help my Literacy, English and ESL students with basic study skills and knowing how to balance homework and all. I find it best to try to teach a little organizational skills first then move on to prioritize things as far as importance and giving them a calendar and a timer to use is essential. I find it works best to do these things first then move on to specifics. I guide them through the journey till they understand and can manage then check in with them periodically.
