My master's degree is in curriculum and instruction. At present, I am particularly busy teaching ESL
, and preparation for the TOEFL
exam. However, my undergraduate degrees are in secondary education, French
, and English
. I am an experienced public and private school teacher and tutor international university students in ESL and preparation for the TOEFL EXAM. Students at both the undergraduate and graduate level profit from my experiences of teaching and tutoring. Much of my coursework is already online, giving students an opportunity to practice and continue learning at home. I am presently teaching both face to face and online. The WyzAnt online platform makes it possible for me to teach students who are residing in another country.
My experiences with WyzAnt include tutoring SAT
, and TOEFL test preparation
for the child and adult, and French. I expect students to continue studying and practicing after each tutoring session. Students will be assigned reading
for comprehension and discussion, and a written assignment.
Since I thoroughly enjoy teaching and tutoring, I am glad to teach any age. My husband and I have three grown, married sons, and seven grandchildren who keep us on our toes in the real world.
Please do not ask me to teach if you are not truly committed to hard work and advancement. Be open to frequent reassessment and redirection in how best to see the progress we both seek. Any cancellations must be notified within at least 12 hours, so I can make alternate plans.

For 2 to 3 students with the same subject and in the same age category (within 2 years difference), the price is negotiable. Larger group lessons can also be negotiated.

Do you have a number of students who enjoy learning games, or online quizzes, or instant feedback? I enjoy using a few sites that prove both entertaining and reinforcing for several of my students. Though some require an annual fee, I find these sites
advantageous, time-saving and totally worth the small expense.
My first choice is Quia.com . I have a number of "pages"...
Do you look forward to each session of tutoring? Have you ever considered tutoring to be an
adventure? I was telling my husband last night that one aspect of teaching that really excites me is that each and every lesson has at least one positive surprise. It may be a comment that the student makes relative to a lesson from two months
ago. Ah, yes! She did listen...
When study time is limited, students need to be extra prepared. Here are some ways in which a parent can help.
Provide index cards for various subjects. If these are color-coded, the student can just grab the color of the subject that needs the most review as she, or he walks out the door each morning.
Make sure the student writes her/his own notes, but check them when they are...
