I have years of experience tutoring a wide variety of populations. At the moment, I am tutoring adults in English
as a Second Language
. I currently have 4 students from 3 different countries. They include a beginner who is working on very basic sentence structure and vocabulary
, an intermediate student who is learning to understand her children's homework and study for her citizenship exam, and two advanced students who meet with me for pronunciation and conversation practice.
I also have spent many years working with special-needs students. I recently worked for two years with college students with Aspergers
syndrome and other forms of autism
. I helped them not only with academic subjects, but with organization
, time-management, and social issues. I have also done ABA therapy with students at different points on the autism spectrum, breaking down everyday tasks ranging from money-handling to computer
skills to using transportation into manageable steps to practice. I am patient and creative in finding a way to reach stubborn or anxious students.
I prefer to work weekdays -- I am available from 8:30 am to about 3:00 pm Mon- Fri. This generally means that I am a better schedule fit for college students and other adult learners. I have also occasionally worked with children in homeschooling programs. I am happy to have a short initial meeting, free of charge, to assess the student's level of knowledge and see if we are a good personality match.
For students who only want conversation practice -- learning new vocabulary, improving pronunciation, and increasing fluency, and who do not need prepared lessons or significant materials, I will meet for conversation group for a reduced rate.
