Hello, I provide private and small group English tutoring for adult learners. We work together in a comfortable environment that affords students the opportunity to improve their English skills quickly and efficiently! In the 10 years that I have been teaching, I have helped students from many countries, from beginners to business executives. After a brief evaluation, each class is personalized to meet students’ specific needs for Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing.

Beginning English speaking students grow quickly in their knowledge of useful vocabulary, basic grammar and lots of opportunities to practice speaking.

In just six weeks, intermediate and advanced English speakers can improve fluency and pronunciation to become more comfortable speaking in business, social and academic settings. My accent reduction program helps students learn how the correct rhythm, stress on words, and intonation can yield more clear speech.

To improve reading and comprehension skills, we build on the basics of scanning for details, understanding the main ideas of a paragraph and much more.

Whether writing business letters or emails; essays; or writing notes to children’s teachers, I can help students produce a well written document they will be proud of.

I am a licensed adult education instructor with the state of Colorado, hold two ESL Certifications and a Bachelor of Business Degree and have been teaching adult learners in Denver since 2008.

Encouraging students to grow and learn is my passion! Let me help you be one of those students. Please email me for more information.

ACT English

First, my students say, "Faith is patient and concerned about my learning". Second, as an English language professional, I am qualified to teach many aspects of English including ACT English. Determining the need for correct punctuation, choosing appropriate verb tenses and understanding the relationship between different types of clauses are a few grammar points that are crucial to a proficient use of English. I can help students with these and more.

Determining the need for correct punctuation, choosing appropriate verb tenses, and understanding the relationship between different types of clauses are just a few grammar points that are crucial to a proficient use of English.

I am a TESOL certified ESL Instructor and hold a Colorado Adult Educator License. I began teaching ESL in 2004 in Georgia and, since 2008, in Denver, I have used my training to provide English language instruction to international students, business executives and members of the international community. As a teacher in local language schools and as a private tutor, I work with students in the following areas:
--Accent Reduction and pronunciation
--Grammar
--Speaking and Listening
--Business English
--Writing, business letters, emails, and essays
Through ongoing professional development, I use the most current methods of instruction and create a positive learning environment that helps students become effective English speakers and writers.

Grammar

GRAMMAR CAN BE FUN!

Understanding grammar actually helps us to speak and write confidently. Rather than memorizing many grammar rules, we study how to use grammar to get the results we want in conversation and writing. Concepts are presented in a clear and easy to understand way.

SAT Reading

First, my students say, "Faith is patient and concerned about my learning." Second, as an English language professional, I am qualified to teach many aspects of English including SAT reading preparation. Understanding the vocabulary and how to use the words in context is crucial for this test. In addition, I can provide techniques to help you evaluate the possible solutions to arrive at the correct answer.

Study Skills

As a certified English as a Second Language instructor and licensed adult basic education instructor since 2003, I have helped students learn good study skills and improve their grades.
We begin with three main areas of studying:
1. WE SET REALISTIC GOALS FOR PROGRESS
2. TIME MANAGEMENT- create a written study schedule
3. GOOD STUDY HABITS- note taking, organization of materials,
improve listening skills for clear understanding of teacher's
requirements.
I monitor progress and effectiveness of skills and make necessary adjustments to the plan.
Students say, "Faith is patient and concerned about my learning."



Vocabulary

VOCABULARY

Vocabulary is a list of words that is necessary to successfully speak any language. These words are the “bricks” that determine the size of our language “house”. For language learners, there is a variety of vocabulary options that include Industry specific vocabulary, every day vocabulary, and academic vocabulary. Choosing the vocabulary that meets the students’ needs is part of my curriculum.

Writing

As an ESL instructor for 10 years, I have provided writing instruction to students in the area of business communications, basic letter writing and developing essay writing skills. We study composition, purpose, organization, sentence structure and punctuation to create an effective written document.
