Do you or your student need help with reading, writing, or study skills? I have a master's degree in English and am a Colorado-certified teacher in English and ESL. I have over 12 years of experience teaching college and high school English, reading and composition classes. I am a fun, effective tutor who makes learning engaging and interesting. My specialties include: reading, writing, study skills, ESL, IELTS preparation and ACT English preparation. Let me help you meet your learning goals!
I hold a Colorado K-12 ESL endorsement. I taught 5th grade full-time (all subjects) from August, 1999- June, 2000 and 6th grade classes in January, 2001-June, 2001. Before that, I did a teaching practicum in a 6th grade language arts class for a semester and taught community classes to 1st and 3rd graders for 2 years. I'm a kind, caring teacher who works well with students of all ages.
I taught speaking courses as part of my faculty position at the University of Denver's English language school. I prepared students to prepare and present presentations in their English and graduate business classes.
When I taught college classes, there were required study skills learning outcomes for all my courses. I also regularly include study skill-building into my high school English and Social Studies skills classes. I have thus had the opportunity to teach a variety of study skills, including time management, reading strategies, using graphic organizers, note-taking and test-taking strategies. I also taught a study skills class and sessions at Sylvan learning centers in 2001-2002 and as student academic adviser at the University of Colorado-Boulder in 1996.
