Teaching is my passion. I am a retired foreign language teacher from Rochester, NY who has taught in middle school, high school, and college, as well as adults in Adult Education. I hold permanent NY teacher certification in German, Spanish, and Russian K-12. I find teaching to be very rewarding and I miss the interaction with students. I enjoy the one on one aspect of tutoring because it enables me to tailor lessons to the specific needs of the student. The smiles on students' faces when they are successful is the best part of the job. I have a Master's degree in Liberal Studies with many graduate level courses in English and Linguistics, and many hours of literacy training, so I would also be very comfortable tutoring English, especially as a second language. I am very organized and have over 20 years in the classroom designing lessons and tutoring students who needed extra help. I like to use a variety of materials in lessons and different approaches to learning the four skill areas of language. My teaching philosophy has always been that all students are capable of learning.
English can be a confusing language, whether you are a native speaker or not. If you are a student who is having trouble in school, or learning English for the first time, I can help. I am a former foreign language teacher, who has done extensive coursework in English Literature, English Grammar, and Linguistics. I also have training in Literacy. I can help with grammar explanations, literary analysis, and vocabulary acquisition. My forte is in organization and study skills for students at all levels.
I am a native English speaker and retired foreign language teacher who knows several languages, German, Spanish, and Russian, and would like to tutor students wishing to learn English as a second language. I have done graduate work in Linguistics, English and English Grammar, and have many hours of Literacy training in English.
As a former teacher, I am familiar with methods of language teaching and language acquisition. I enjoy working with students of all ages. I have taught at the middle school, high school, and college level as well as with adults in Adult Education.
Let's learn German! I have taught students German in middle and high school, as well as adults in Adult Education. I have NY State certification K-12. I enjoy working with students of all ages. Learning another language is useful and I try to make it fun and interesting. If you are already studying German, I can help with any problems. I have lots of ideas to help students be successful. I focus on all four skill areas of speaking, listening, reading, and writing. If you would like to study German, I would love to help you learn a very useful and important language.
English grammar can be confusing, whether you are a native speaker or not. If you are a student who is having trouble in school, or learning English for the first time, I can help. I am a former foreign language teacher, who has done extensive coursework in English Literature, English Grammar, and Linguistics. I also have training in Literacy. I can help clear up the mysteries of English grammar and give you the tools you need to succeed.
Reading is the key to success. Difficulty in Reading is often a result of lack of sufficient vocabulary. I can help students by giving them techniques for increasing their vocabulary, as well as ways to improve their reading comprehension. I have lots of ideas for making learning more fun. I am a former foreign language teacher, who has had a lot of training in Literacy. My goal is always to help students improve their reading ability, but also to enjoy reading more.
I have a BA in Russian from SUNY Buffalo. I taught Russian at the University of Virginia. I have also taught Russian in Adult Education, and possess permanent NY State Teacher certification in Russian N-12. I am an experienced foreign language teacher.

Writing well is a fundamental skill and one of the keys to success. I can help students improve their writing with techniques I learned in the Literacy training I received as a high school teacher. Some of the things we focus on are sentence construction, punctuation, spelling, and grammar. Students can learn to express themselves well and be more successful in all their subjects or in their jobs.

Great tutor — Gilda and I have been meeting once a week for a month now. I am learning Russian at a beginners level. Having never learned a foreign language before Gilda is making it very easy to understand.
