Students should have fun (enjoy what they are learning) while they are being tutored. Finding out why they need tutoring in the first place is always a goal of mine. A student will not learn if they do not enjoy how a subject is presented to them. I also like to enhance what I am teaching with visuals, but that does not mean we do not use the assigned text. Film is often a viable way to enhance the learning process. Histories and (English) literature go hand-in-hand, and there is also art that was being created while these were being written (or made).

English grammar is extremely important for if you cannot communicate your ideas and thoughts to others, it does not matter who you are or what you know.

I have a Master in Education and am certified to teach history and am working on my English certification. I taught ceramics for 11 summers at a private day camp as I also have a degree in art -- my first degree being a Bachelor in Fine Arts Interrelated Media.

I have taught middle school and high school overseas twice (Egypt and Turkey) -- where I taught history and English (and also -- in Turkey -- drama) and also taught these in the United States.

I am also interested in the arts, films, and theatre. I love to read. I have a dog. I had my own (swing and jazz) radio show for several years.

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.

ACT English

I am an English and history teacher. I attended Lesley College in Cambridge, Massachusetts for my Masters. I have taught in Brookline and overseas (Egypt and Turkey) twice. I have written a book that has been published (my second one is being edited). I love correct English and proper grammar. Correct use of the language enhances communication.

American History

Boston is THE best place to live, learn & teach American History!

English

It is important to communicate properly. English is being used more and more worldwide. A good grasp of the language is a must. I love good grammar. I have taught English here, in Brookline, MA, and also overseas in Egypt and in Turkey. I would love to help you.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught English to non-Americans overseas two times. I love to help others understand what is fast becoming a universal language.

Public Speaking

I joined Toastmasters in 1992. I am still an active member. Toastmasters is a worldwide public Speaking Organisation founded by Dr. Ralph Smedley in California in 1924. Women were allowed to join in 1973. It teaches you how you how to present, talk, organise your thoughts, interact with others, listen to others, and compete. It also teaches you to use your voice : emphasis, inflection, and many others. I have held many offices in Massachusetts and in Florida -- Sergeant at Arms, District Fundraiser, Public Relations, and an Area Governor. I joined just before I became a teacher and am sure glad that I did! I have mentored members and took part in the Youth Leadership (teaching youths in school). As a teacher, I do public speaking ALL day!

Reading

Reading is one of the most enjoyable adventures, and pleasures, one can have without being arrested! :)

SAT Reading

I love to read, and will help you improve your reading.

SAT Writing

I have written two books and some poetry. One of my books has been published. The other is being edited for delivery to the publisher.

World History

I have lived in other parts of the world. I have seen some of what we in the United States only read about in our history books.
