ESL/ESOL

I tutor ESL students by instructing them in pronunciation, basic grammar, the 8 Parts of Speech, basic sentence structure, and work up to paragraph writing. I also make sure a student understands how to write a topic sentence, and then provide solid points to develop a sound paragraph.

When the student is ready, we may move on to writing basic essays that have a thesis and 3 structured points. I also provide students with five ways to write an introductory paragraph.

I also have mini-grammar lessons that I ask the student to read out loud in order to make sure his/her pronunciation is improving. We may also read passages from a textbook or novel to improve reading skill and pace.

Additionally, we work on homework that the student has from school. This may include reading comprehension, reading sample paragraphs, and writing simple paragraphs.

I cater the level of instruction to the student's comfort level and goals. I have had many students improve their mastery of the English language and move up to regular English classes after one semester!

Public Speaking

I teach students vocal projection, pace, poise, professionalism, and enunciation while working on several types of speeches.

I start with an Introduction speech, then move on to an Informative (non-biased) speech, then a Demonstrative "how to" speech with materials, and finally, a Persuasive speech with research and visual aids.

I have taught speech on the high school and college level for over 15 years. I coached Forensics (Speech and Drama competition) for 5 different schools. I have a BA in Theatre/English and an Minor in Speech from U of M.

I have great success with students who are terrified to speak at first; they become very confident by their final Argumentative speech. I am very patient and work on progress.

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
