ESL/ESOL

I tutored German middle school students in English for a number of years while I lived in Vienna, Austria. I have gone over pronunciation, spelling, grammar and sentence structure with children of all ages. For adults, I have spent more time teaching the conversational aspects of the English language working on fluidity and pronunciation as well as defining the nuances between similar vocabulary words. In teaching ESL I typically use a multimedia approach which engages students instead of boring them.

Geography

Explore the world's most fascinating places from the Great Wall to the Great Barrier Reef. Every continent, country and U.S. State has something interesting to learn about. Geography is not just about learning countries and capitals; it is about people, culture and language. Geography is what makes a place have a feeling, it is what makes traveling worthwhile. Without the diversity of places we would never need to leave home. As your tutor, we will explore from home and travel via internet, photos and text books to distant places, or even neighboring states to learn what the world has to offer!

German

I have a Bachelor's degree in German Language and Literature. After a 6 month intensive language course in Vienna, Austria I sat for (and passed with flying colors,) the Austrian Language Examination. After my first 6 months abroad in Vienna, I spent the next 5 summers as a Nanny to 4 Austrian children enveloped in the language, dialects, school system and culture. I offer a well-rounded German education using my vast knowledge of the German-speaking world, language, grammar and pronunciation.

Phonics

Having spent a number of years learning a second language, I have spent a great deal of time teaching others English phonetics. As a young child I also required additional help pronouncing all the sounds properly. After that help, reading became much easier for me as well. With a knowledgeable tutor by your side we will learn the ins and outs of the alphabet and all the funny sounds it can make in a creative and effective manner!

Social Studies

I have been tutoring Social Studies, American History, Geography and Geology to university students since 2004. I have my BA in Geography and German Language and Literature. My area of focus in Geography was Human and Anthropologic Geography, where I studied primarily the various ethnic groups of Sub-Saharan Africa and the Caribbean. I have traveled extensively throughout the western hemisphere from Turkey to Alaska and have a strong understanding and knowledge of even more cultures and peoples - well beyond what is taught in books.

Study Skills

I have tutored and mentored student-athletes in study skills, organizational skills and note-taking for 5 years at the University of Miami. I am well-versed in working with students who are disinterested, have learning disabilities and are otherwise disadvantaged in the educational system. As a result, I have a wide array of ideas and suggestions that can be used to find a study method, which works for the various learning styles and educational stages of students.

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
