I have always been interested in helping other people learn. I did very well in college, at law school, and in an MBA program. My written and oral communication skills are excellent, and I can be very detail oriented. I have studied French and Russian at the college level, and have traveled abroad extensively so I have learned how to communicate with people from all walks of life.

I am very patient and understanding when others are having trouble with a skill or concept. My church has a tutoring program with which I have been very involved. The students are usually from inner city or failing schools, yet not one of them has failed to improve with my help and their hard work.

I have also had the opportunity to work with migrant workers from Mexico, and with my college Spanish, and their eagerness to learn, we managed to communicate well. I love helping other people learn and try to make it fun, while also achieving the students' goals.

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

ESL/ESOL

While living in Oceana County, I had experience working with Spanish speakers, mostly migrant workers. I was successful in helping them learn to communicate with English speakers. In college, I tutored other students in French and Russian, and enjoyed it immensely. I have always been an expert in English grammar, spelling, and vocabulary.
I have lived and traveled abroad and was always able to communicate with those for whom English was not their native language. My church had a tutoring program and many of the children were Spanish speakers. I take great pride in the success the students had in improving their command of English. I took courses in linguistics in college and have numerous books at home as references in the field of linguistics.
