I have been tutoring for over 10 years, both in an academic setting and privately in students homes. I enjoy working individually with students because I can see an ongoing increase in their understanding of and proficiency in a particular subject. Initially I assess a student's learning style, strong points, and weak points, and from there I determine the best way to approach any subject that the student wishes to focus on. It's a wonderful feeling for both the students and me when the "light goes on" and they have a better understanding of a language
concept that had been puzzling them. Many students and their parents have referred me to other students. Also, upon graduation from University of Massachusetts Boston, where I tutored English
, and German
, I was presented with the Tutor of the Year Award. This distinction came as a total, but pleasant, surprise to me.
In addition to tutoring, I also teach English as a Second Language
- ESL, Basic English, First Year English Literature
and Composition, Public Speaking
, and other literature classes at a small college in Boston. During the summer I teach ESL to high school students who come to the Boston area to improve their English skills and enjoy the summer in this area. My skills in all levels of English, including grammar
, and writing
are well-developed and constantly being strengthened and reinforced. Therefore, I can pass on my knowledge to my students and be helpful to them!be of great assistance to degree in a foreign language
. I have also taught English as a Second Language to both adults and international students.
Personally, I love reading, traveling, theater, art
, and animals. When I tutor, I find out the student's interests and relate them to what he or she is working with. I hope all of this information has been helpful. I'm sure that you will be pleased with my tutoring skills.
