I have taught kindergarten through 12th grade for over 25 years. Most of this time was in middle school. I taught ESL in the content areas, mostly science and math. In high school I taught American literature and nonfiction.
I enjoy challenging my students, taking them through a problem step by step and having them do the hard work. It is rewarding for all.

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.

Phonics

I am a native speaker of English. I have a Master's degree in Applied Linguistics from SUNY at Stony Brook. I taught ESL in the NYC public schools for over 20 years. My experience has ranged from kindergarten to 12th grade. I also taught 5th grade in Mexico for a year.

For younger learners, simple one-syllable words are introduced. For more advanced speakers, I introduce and practice the exceptions and abstractions that frequently confuse even native speakers of English.

In all grades and places, I have always used a combination of phonics and whole language. Neither alone is effective. Meaning is first, means comes next.
