Hello!

My name is Ishmael J., and I would love to help you speak better English. I am currently fresh from completing my undergraduate degree; I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Sociology major and minors in Philosophy and Russian Area studies last spring.

I have just completed a Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) program at the Boston Academy of English (an ACCET accredited institution). This course, which included live practice teaching hours with real students of all levels, immersed me in the communicative language teaching methodology. I truly believe it is the best and fastest way for a person to acquire and use a language.

My tutoring style would be completely focused on the development of the student. My methodology would include activities and exercises that engage, interest, and stimulate learning for the student. Nothing is more important than the student walking away with new material they have learned. It is extremely rewarding for me to see the progress of my students in any or all of their areas they require instruction in.

My demeanor is friendly and open. I, as a teacher, hope to build a relationship of respect and trust with my students in order to facilitate better and more rapid learning in a positive environment.

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.

Bible Studies

I have taken four college level Theological courses at my alma mater - Saint Anselm College in Manchester, NH; it is a small liberal arts college integrated with a Benedictine monk society on campus. My classes included Biblical Theology, Liberation Theology, The Old Testament, and Sexual Ethics.

I worked as a tutor for general Biblical Theology at the recommendation of two professors at my school. I had four students over the course of my time mentoring. Tutoring hours included subject matter for test review, essay work, and general information clarification.
