Approved subjects are in bold.
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.
I have taught ESL (for adults) for many years, both at the Lado Institute in Washington, D.C., and at CAMBA, the Church Avenue Merchants Block Association in Brooklyn. I have worked with students from beginner to advanced levels, using the direct (or natural) method.
I am a native speaker of English, fluent in Spanish, conversant in French and at an intermediate level in American Sign Language. I have worked with students from many different language backgrounds including Spanish, French, Turkish, Arabic and Russian.
I have had several years experience as program coordinator for an adult education program which focused on GED prep and computer literacy.
I have extensive web production experience as a developer, project manager, and information architect/UX designer for clients that have included The Weather Channel, Oppenheimer Funds, Cadillac and American Express.
As a long-time teacher, I have a lot of experience in public speaking. In the academic setting the audience may be limited to a couple of dozen. However as a member of a mutual aid society, I regularly address much larger groups (as many as a hundred or more). And I also teach a number of skills classes (outdoors), which has its own set of challenges -- and opportunities. While I have no pretensions about an acting career I do appreciate that in pedagogy (or motivational speaking) a little theater goes a long way. And of course, always leave them wanting more...

I am hearing, but I studied sign language for about a year at the Sign Language Center in Manhattan.
I am an intermediate level signer (I can hold a casual conversation), and am proficient in finger-spelling. I understand the various conceptual systems of ASL: fingerspelling, ideograms, idioms, qualifiers, use of space, basic grammar, etc. I was for a time one of the facilitators of the NYC ASL Meet-Ups and tutored many newcomers informally.
I am also conversant to fluent in English, Spanish and French, and have a deep appreciation of the similarities and differences between aural/oral and visual/manual languages.
