If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

I have lived in seven countries, am multi-lingual, and have twenty years of experience with Asian, European, and American students.

At the university level, I have taught: English Composition, Scientific English, Italian Language, Cross-Cultural Understanding, and Anthropology.

Teaching groups large and small within the framework of educational institutions usually requires a set curriculum, but on a one-on-one we have the freedom to design something precisely to meet the needs of the student.

This is ideal for the student who is really striving for improvement.

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.

English

Learn to Write: expository, descriptive, persuasive, compare/contrast and research.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught Japanese, Mongolian, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish-speaking students to speak English. We focus on practical spoken English to develop vocabulary and grammatical structures through usage.

Grammar

This is a subject geared to either the native or non-native speaker of English. Whether writing or speaking, grammar still matters. Learn the basics and terminology.

Italian

Whether for love Italian food, the need to communicate on your next trip to Italy, or to read a rich literature or contemporary magazines, Italian opens up a new world. I am ready to teach on any level beginning with the basics of grammar.

Literature

We review English literature from the 17th century to the present with special focus on modern English and American literature. We explore re-occurring themes, genres, literary devices, and characters.

SAT Reading

Critical reading and a good vocabulary are key to doing well on the SAT. We focus on these skills.

Vocabulary

Learn contemporary vocabulary through studying word roots derived from Latin, Greek, and the Romance languages.

Writing

Learn to write a coherent essay, a convincing letter, or a critical review.
