If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

If you're looking for some help with reading, writing, speaking, spelling, or pronunciation, I can bring many years of experience to your table, having started my career at the elementary level and working my way up into high school and even college. I graduated from Regis University with a major in English and a minor in Spanish, and I've taught both subjects in schools. Later I got my Master's Degree in English Education, concentrating on teaching reading, writing, grammar and ESL at any level. I've also worked in private corporations as an English pronunciation coach for their foreign engineers.

I'm a world traveler, and in 2003 I went to Peru to research the mysterious Nazca Lines. In 2004 I published a bilingual children's book (English/Spanish) about these famous line drawings and the woman who discovered them for the world.

While I have technically retired from classroom teaching, I still have more years to do what I love best, and that is helping students one-on-one, like you, to excel in school. I'm open to students of any age to improve their language skills with English or Spanish.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

When I first began teaching Language Arts, I started teaching Grades 4, 5, and 6, where I worked on writing, grammar and reading. When I got my Master's Degree in English Education, I took higher level courses on how to teach all the basic English skills.

English

I have taught writing skills at every level. These include sentence structure, paragraph development, and essay organization. Other skills I've taught include grammar, punctuation and vocabulary.

ESL/ESOL

Accent Modification is my specialty, and I've been working one-on-one with clients in this field for over twenty years. I have worked with engineers in companies like Lucent Technologies, Avaya, Sun Microsystems and the EPA, as well as with private students

Phonics

When I taught children at the lower grades, I worked on phonics with them. Later, when I taught Pronunciation to ESL students, I had to spend a great amount of time on Vowel and Consonant sounds and their combinations that produce certain sounds in English.
