Hi my name is Russell! I am a teacher with almost 4 years of experience in the field of ESL - English As A Second Language. I have taught from ages 4 - 65, and I'm comfortable teaching to any age group.

I have also been certified as an ACT tutor by both The Princeton Review and Studypoint, and I'm familiar with many ACT testing strategies than can help students increase their scores.

In addition, I have a 3 year substitute authorization for Colorado public schools and am certified for grades K - 12. This certification was issued August 9th, 2012.

I have been tutoring for about a year and really enjoy working with students. I am able to make my students feel comfortable and confident, and to help them achieve their goals. I have experience tutoring in diverse areas and will tailor my strategies to your needs.

I also have a BA in English, and I'm currently planning to return to college to attain a Master's Degree in Education or a related field.

I enjoy traveling and have lived in Japan and Korea. I also enjoy writing music, playing guitar, reading, hiking, playing video games, watching movies, hiking, playing darts, and many other activities. Please contact me if you need help meeting your goals!

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)

I have 3 years of experience teaching students from the preschool-8th grade range. I also have a BA degree in English that helps show my competency in all of the elementary subject fields. I am confident my degree and experience will allow me to help students with any elementary subject.

ESL/ESOL

I have 3 years of experience teaching ESL in S. Korea to children ages 4-14. My ESL experience focused on using phonics, reading, essay writing, word recognition, spelling, and other language acquisition techniques. I have taught everything from learning the alphabet to writing advanced research essays in preparation for college.

Phonics

I have 3 years of experience using phonics to teach English to students. My phonics classes focus on sounding out letters and combinations of letters in order to help develop language fluency, especially when reading. My classes also use phonics to illustrate that words are built from sounds that are linked together. The goal of my classes is to help students use phonics to sound out and read any word they might come across. We accomplish this by using flashcards, illustrations, and practice through reading texts.

"Made me feel at ease" — I thought that Russell was very respectful and made me feel at ease. He was thorough and made sure he covered all the bases. He also had me practice what he explained to me on the computer to make sure I had a good handle on it and would be successful in completing my assignments for class. Overall, a great teacher! ...
