Hi there! My name is Toomy. I am an experienced tutor. I have taught kids from K 1 to 6 in general subjects. I have also taught ESL to students from different countries. I have recently finished two-year program in Business Management. I used to work in Bangkok, Thailand as an English teacher. Most of my students and their parents were satisfied by my teaching techniques. I worked well with children as I have always come up with some games related to the subject to help them develop their skills.
I have also tutored other skill sets such as grammar, reading, writing, spelling, and conversation that are related to ESL. One of my memorable experiences was a student from Korea decided to have me as his tutor after getting lessons from different tutors. He chose me as his tutor because he said he felt comfortable taking lessons with me.
As a tutor, I will try my best to help my future students learn and improve their skills.
I can help students with basic math from K to 6th. Since I have just finished my two-year degree in business management, I took a couple math and accounting classes, so I help elementary students with their math homework.
I have a BA in Communication and recently finished two-years degree in Business Management. I taught and tutored ESL students both in Thailand and California. I have my way of teaching, which can be different from other tutors. I let my students express their opinions whether they are right or wrong, and have them read, write, and speak freely. In the mean time, I help them by correcting and showing them the better way to learn English as a Second Language.
As my English is also a second language, I find grammar is one of the most intimidating skills. Most of my students found that grammar has always been difficult for them. Somehow, I found the way to make it a bit more interesting to them. I have taught a couple people who hated grammar and now they can use basic present or past tense better than before.
When I was a kid, I didn't like reading. During my college years, I started to grasp a concept of reading that it helps me improves other skills and generate ideas. It is also important to understand the main idea and what the whole story is about. I have used what I learned to help students to understand the main idea and whole story, so they can succeed in their classes. My technique is also to have students read out loud, so they get to practice speaking in the same time.
I know for the fact that we all can misspell even English teachers do sometimes. My method of spelling is to read and write a lot. I would tell my students that it is okay to look up the words you don't know because that is how you learn. I found that it is really helpful to improve spelling skills.
I always tell the students that vocabulary will enhance your other skills. The methods are to look up when you don't know the meaning and write both words and meanings down to refresh your memory. My other method is to have illustration, so students can learn those vocabularies quicker.
I took many English composition classes while in college and got decent grades, so I have been asked to help my ESL friends with their essays. I have also tutored a high school student who had a hard time with her paper. Eventually, she passed the class and got accepted in college, which made me glad that I could help her some through out the semester. If anyone needs me to look at the paper, I will be happy to help.
