I have graduate degrees in TESOL and Creative Writing. Also, I have 28+ years of experience in theater both as a writer and an actor. I believe in using the collaborative approach to tutoring where both the tutor and the student work together to strengthen the desired skills of the student.
We each bring unique talents to the tutoring session; therefore, my aim is to facilitate the sessions so that these strengths are optimized. I will take on the role of "teacher" when necessary if a particular lesson needs to be conducted, but the majority of the tutoring sessions will involve collaborating on a particular issue to discover your strengths and strengthen those areas that need attention.
I approach the teaching of English to speakers of other languages in a holistic way, integrating all of the components; speaking, listening, reading, and writing, so that the lessons are based on your unique needs.
Language is acquired not learned, and the acquisition occurs when students use the language in ways that are meaningful to them. As a tutor, I will help you to discover your learning process and guide you to take your language learning out into the broader world so that you become an independent learner.
Grammar lessons are incorporated into the larger focus of achieving fluency so that learning happens through use and not through boring grammar drills. My responsibility is to assess your needs and direct you toward the material that best fits what and how you need to learn.
Together we will develop a clear plan by setting clear objectives that help you to achieve your goals.
