I am able to tutor in English (Learning as a second language, High School L.A. Creative Writing, Composing an Essay, Research). I am currently a facilitator of Sustained Silent Reading (it is called D.E.A.R. at the elementary school level). Reading and writing are essential skills for academic success and as an adult in any career!
I am a native English Speaker with M.Ed. I am formally trained in linguistics, morphology and phonetics for my undergraduate degree.
I have 6 Graduate Credits in Bilingual Education. The Bilingual Education courses focused on teaching strategies for Second Language Learners (English Language Learners/ELLs). For example, one strategy is SIOP, which is a learning program that stands for Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol. The focus of this model is examining language objectives.
Language acquisition is a process. I put into practice the SIOP model in designing unique lesson plans that assess the student and holds them accountable in content standards (e.g., practical applications of Biology in developing English skills). I have worked with, and continue to work with students who's first language is not English in the classroom.
I have tutored 2 young adults in preparation for completion of their GED exam.
I have a lot of experience with PowerPoint on a Mac or PC. PowerPoints are a great tool to supplement your presentations for work or school.
I have taken several courses on reading in effective instruction and have tutored K-5 students in reading comprehension.
Please see my "profile" for description.
I have always been a vocabulary nut. I never went so far as to read the entire dictionary, but would definitely be able to help a child or English Language Learner strengthen their vocab.
