Learn how to write and speak Standard English and have fun learning! I've been teaching English, Composition and Speech in high schools (inner city and suburban) and colleges for over twenty years and have developed a method to learn and remember the grammar rules you need to succeed in writing and speaking proper English. With my Theatre background, learning how to express yourself through Composition and Speech will be very enjoyable.
We organize your lessons into compartments to work on your particular needs. You will learn to love expressing yourself through writing and speaking, be proud and confident of your ability to write excellent English, and stand apart from the crowd by speaking and communicating effectively and properly. Improve your progress in job interviews and in the work force.
I have coached and taught professionals on the stage, in film, and in corporate and educational settings. I have earned several degrees in English and Education and attended a prestigious NYC professional acting school.
I tutor high school and college English Language and Theatre Arts, for which I am certified as a Language Arts Teacher, grades 6-12, in NY State and Illinois. You can preview my list of Certified subjects I am able to teach here on my profile, which contains the Humanities, Science, Math, Prep Courses for College and ESL International Exams. I teach an-easy-to follow formula for how to write a five paragraph essay, and also work with grammar school-aged children, having taught K-6 grades throughout my career for extended periods of time as a long-time substitute and grades 5-8 for 3 years.
I was also employed for over a year contract by a large international educational corporation to professionally write reading comprehension passages and their accompanying Bloom's taxonomy questions for Grades 1-9, 200-500 words per appropriate level, which are currently published in three continents, including North America, the UK and Oceania, and use these reading composition passages to develop my clients' reading comprehension to a superior level. They include fiction, non-fiction, folk and fairy tales; thus, my students also learn subject material while honing their reading comprehension via the Bloom's taxonomy questions, which are universally recognized in the global educational community as questions devised to develop, improve and facilitate students' reading comprehensions organically, as one passage per day, 7 days a week is worked on by the student and then reviewed by their instructor/tutor once a week. By the time students reach Grade 9, their reading comprehension is at a superior proficiency and they are as prepared as much as possible to sit for their major qualifying exams in their continuing academic careers and professional education. They also really enjoy them, and I have written them with today's students concerns, interests and necessary educational and reading comprehension development, and are structured to target all students from Grades 1-9 appropriately as per their current grade level.
ESL and college Composition and Speech students are also encouraged to respond, as I can help rewrite and edit your essays and papers, having taught College Composition for many years. Deliver your speech to me before you deliver your Speech before your class and your Instructor! We will rehearse your Speech until you feel comfortable, and when you deliver your Speech in front of your class your your Speech will be a resounding success. Early on, I experienced performance anxiety, but was trained in a professional acting school, and can teach you how to conquer any fears.
ESL speakers of English also experience performance anxiety because ESL speakers of English perform when they speak English, as it is not their native language, and suffer many of the same performance anxieties as performance professionals, but I can also teach you how to eliminate your fear or anxiety when speaking English. You will learn English that is most appropriate to use in business and in your everyday personal life.
