Qualifications and Subjects Offered: Hello! My name is Bethany, and I am a Teaching English
as a Second Language
certified professional tutor. I have experience tutoring English, Sociology
, developmental math
, and study skills
. I also have proofreading
experience. Additionally, I have six years of experience working and volunteering with individuals with disabilities (autism
, blindness, deafness, down syndrome
, cerebral palsy, MRDD, etc.). I also have experience tutoring English as a Second language
/ English as a Foreign Language
and helping international students with college level English classes. I speak intermediate level Spanish
, beginning Arabic
, and beginning English word order sign language
, and I read grade 1 braille
. I offer adult lessons over the phone, on the internet
, or in person, and I offer children’s lessons in person.Philosophy
and Approach: I believe that everyone can learn, but everyone learns differently. Therefore, I work with students to find study methods and learning styles that fit each student. I help students deal with issues like testing anxiety so that they can be confident. I also help students learn how to organize their studies and their time. Additionally, I help children take responsibility for their studies and feel good about it.
I truly care about the success of my students, and I work hard to help them succeed. I involve parents in their children’s learning by providing written feedback after every lesson. I also listen to the parents’ concerns about their children’s learning; parents know their children best. Finally, I give adult students as much control as they want over the learning process, and I give children as much control as they can handle. Students can tell me in which areas they need help, and I will tailor lessons to meet their needs. Students can decide for themselves what study methods they like. I will provide detailed feedback after every lesson to help students in this process.
For more information, be sure to check out my blog in the resources section, especially the posts “Guidelines for Tutoring Adults” and “Parent/ Children Tutoring Guidelines”.
I look forward to working with you! :)
