Learn how to fill out an application, talk to your landlord, ask directions. These are some every day tasks that most of us take for granted. Learning basic English skills can be a stepping stone to a better job or an education. Broaden your horizons and have a more fulfilling social life!
Tutoring with sensitivity, dignity and patience that is so important when tutoring adult learners. Reading and writing can be fun! I teach my students to not only read and write correctly but to enjoy these skills as well. Reading and writing well can open a whole new world to those who may currently be struggling with these subjects. My goal will be to instill an enjoyment and an appreciation of the interpretation and expression of the written word.
I hold a bachelor's degree in Legal Education from the University of Massachusetts. At college I taught and privately tutored adult ESL students in legal terminology and case law. Upon graduation I received the 1988 Book Award for my writing through the Law Department. I worked for twenty five years in human services, specifically with low income individuals and families as a case manager and accessed all types of benefits and services for clients. I also served that same community as an outreach worker, providing referrals for families and individuals in crisis. Additionally, I conducted ongoing education in a monthly seminar format to adults seeking an understanding of landlord and tenants rights and responsibilities for use in the first time home purchasing process.
I offer some flexibility regarding fees. Please inquire at the time of your request for services.
Learn English as a second language! From the first session students will use English exclusively. Emphasis will be placed upon conversational and practical wording. A good choice for those students with limited understanding of their new language.
Learn to enjoy reading! Sessions will concentrate on practical interpretation of words as well as learning an appreciation of the written word. Assignments will cater to the student's areas of interest in teaching the ability to navigate the world of books.
Learn the rules of spelling. Learn how to spot incorrect spellings and make the appropriate changes.
Expanding vocabulary is crucial in improving writing skills. Learning to express yourself well is a liberating experience and opens many doors previously not available to you. Mean what you say and say what you mean!
Writing well facilitates making life connections previously unavailable to you in your life. Starting with the keeping of a daily diary we will expand to writing both fiction and non-fiction short pieces. Learning to edit your own work will allow practical experience that will serve you well beyond your tutoring sessions. Don't be afraid to write. Enjoy yourself.
