...brighten your world with language proficiency. A dedicated second/foreign language student need not contemplate any other tutor than myself for maximum results. Even the ubiquitous English language needs illuminating for any student serious about projecting a sophisticated academic profile. Communication skills, so readily neglected in common practice, can be acquired with instruction and practical applications that I have developed during thirty years of classroom teaching. I would be honored to be your tutor and only your own personal level of ambition is the limit to what you can learn from my expert instruction.
The above self-assurance is based on French and Spanish language expertise from having studied,taught,and lived extensively in France and Spain. A third year abroad program during undergraduate school centered at the Institut de Touraine in Tours, France allowed me to develop my French as a second language. Subsequent to completion of undergraduate school, I was awarded a Fulbright Assistantship and profited from an instructor's position at a lycee teaching English literacy and at the Universite d'Amiens teaching American literature. Years in Majorca, Spain, working at the Son Vida ranch, provided an initial introduction to Spanish which I later honed in Spanish classes and as a Spanish teacher K-12. My Spanish is one hundred percent proficient and my French is fluent. Currently, I have ranch hands on my farm from Chile and Spanish is the daily language of communication.
Thank you for considering my credentials and I look forward to working with you soon.

Elementary (K-6th)

Teaching to the criteria of the North Carolina public school curriculum has been the focus of my professional career for thirty years.

ESL/ESOL

North Carolina Esl certification is very difficult to obtain and in which to become certified. The program at UNC Chapel Hill was developed at the same time when I was becoming certified. Thus, I had an integral part in the definition of the program's curriculum. It was a wonderful experience to work/study/learn in a brand new educational field which ESL was at the time. I am an eleven year ESL veteran teacher with excellent commendations of which I am extremely proud.

Proofreading

Proofreading is an exact practice that requires strict adherence to rules of English grammar, syntax, punctuation, agreement, etc. I scored 100% on the WyzAnt mastery test for this subject proficiency. I would be happy to help whoever needs my services in this discipline. Thank you.
