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

Bible Studies

I first studied the Bible as a boarding student at an American Baptist prep school, Peddie School in Hightstown, NJ. As an undergraduate English major at Yale, I was required to become familiar with both the New Testament and the Hebrew Scriptures. Subsequently as an adult I completed the intensive three-year Bethel Bible Series at Calvary Lutheran Church, Honolulu, Hawaii. Along the way, I taught both adult and middle-school-level Sunday school at the ELCA Lutheran churches where my family and I were members. I am a frequent Bible reader as well as a regular church attender. I became Catholic in January 2004 and have served as a trained lector reading the first and second lessons from the Bible at both weekday and Sunday Masses. Since January 2011 my wife and I joined St. John's Episcopal Church, Boulder, where I have continued Biblical reading and studies. I have also read portions of the Bible in Spanish, French, German, Italian, and Indonesian. In short, I am very familiar with the Bible.

Elementary (K-6th)

Although a retired university English professor, I am an active grandfather of an elementary-school-aged girl and am currently tutoring a ten-year-old three times a week in English/writing. As a professional writer/editor, I am really enjoying myself and learning a lot from the experience. The student, a girl who is being home-schooled, is enthusiastic and so is her mother. I would thus be delighted to have more elementary-school-aged clients and hope that I can have the chance to help you and your children.

ESL/ESOL

From January to June 2012 I was a volunteer teacher in Indonesian Borneo, where I taught English as a Second Language to high-school freshmen, sophomores, and seniors. Over the years I have taught English to students from Europe, Africa, and Asia. In fall 2010 I taught English intensively to a Spanish wind-turbine technician working in Boulder, Colorado. Prior to that, I taught English to a young woman from Seychelles who was visiting her aunt in Boulder. Before leaving for Indonesia in December 2011, I tutored a Czech physician in English. I enjoy working with international students and adults, so if you are interested in learning or improving your English and you are in the Greater Boulder area, let's "talk."

German

Although I am an English native speaker, born in New York City, I was an Exchange Student at Heidelberg University as an undergraduate, a German minor at Yale, and an instructor later on at the University of Maryland in Germany. During the 43 years of my marriage to a German national, moreover, we spoke mainly German at home. As a result of all that, many Germans think I am a native speaker (from another part of Germany!), and I consider myself bilingual. Recently, during a volunteer-teaching stint in Indonesian Borneo, I tutored two German-Russian young people in their "father tongue," German, and, should you be interested, I'd be happy to tutor you as well.

Grammar

As a Ph.D in English language and literature from Yale, retired English professor, high school English teacher, and long-time tutor (three years with WyzAnt alone), I have a strong knowledge of English grammar and have taught the subject many times. As an ESL tutor and former East-West Center (Hawaii) staff member, moreover, I have years of experience working with non-native English speakers, persons of all national, cultural, and religious backgrounds. If you believe I can help you, don't hesitate to contact me via WyzAnt, which is a highly efficient, economical, and innovative national tutoring company. Thanks!

Proofreading

As a multi-published author, professional editor, and retired university English professor, I have lots of experience proofreading both my own manuscripts and those of others. I can help you submit clear, concise, persuasive essays, chapters, articles, dissertations, and books every time--even at a distance (by email). Thanks.

SAT Reading

As a retired university English professor and dean (also academic vice president), I have tutored a number of high-school students in preparing for the "English" side of the SATs as well as college students getting ready to do well on their Graduate Record Exams (GREs). If you need tutoring to prepare for the reading, logic, and/or writing sides of the SATs, please get in touch. Thank you. Reynold F., WyzAnt Tutor, Boulder

SAT Writing

As a former university English professor and dean, I have helped perhaps a half dozen WyzAnt students as of January 2014 prepare for the English sections of the SAT exam. My students tell me that our sessions have given them the knowledge, strategies, and confidence to do well, or at least better, on the test.

Study Skills

As a retired college professor (English) and dean and, most recently, as a volunteer high-school English teacher in an English-language school in Indonesian Central Borneo, I feel well-qualified to assist a wide range of students with improving their study skills. Included would be reading for content, time management, setting up assignments, researching papers on the internet (and in the library), thinking critically, and reviewing one's work/proofreading.

Writing

As a multi-published author and professional editor as well as a retired university English professor, I have lots of experience writing and teaching others how to write effectively. I hope I'll have the opportunity to help you. For more on my background, please see my WyzAnt profile. Thanks. Reynold F.

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.
