I am an internationally experienced educator, having worked both as a classroom teacher and a tutor in the US, and as a tutor and proofreader in Turkey. My students have ranged in age from 5-55, which shows that I am flexible and able to relate to a wide variety of people. I am a clear speaker, energetic, patient but firm, and have a good sense of humor.

I have a Master's Degree in Education from Indiana University. I have recently located to the Charleston area and am anxious to use my skills and experience in a one-on-one or small group setting. I can help younger students in reading, English grammar, spelling, or test preparation. I am also able to provide tutoring to older students in French or to proofread any papers or presentations.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I worked extensively while living in Turkey with both children and adults in improving their grammatical and conversational skills in American English. At present, I am working with a young Japanese woman who is now married to an American and living in Summerville. All of my students have studied English, but want to be able to speak it better and be more comfortable using it.

French

I have an AB degree in French Education from Indiana University, and a Master's Degree in Secondary Education from the same institution. I have 15 years of classroom experience as a French teacher. In addition, I also have worked for a foreign language publishing company, and have conducted workshops with language teachers to help them use their materials more effectively.

Public Speaking

I have been involved in community theater throughout my entire life, so public speaking, poise and presentation are second nature to me. For several years I taught diction and stage-presence at a summer theater camp in South Bend, Indiana. While living in Turkey, I was sought out by parents as English tutors for their children as well as by university professors who knew English but wanted to be able to speak well. I have always been told that I was easily understood whenever I spoke. I can help students to understand the importance of clear, concise pronunciation, of eye contact, of "reading one's audience," and help them to improve in these areas.
