If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

I have taught ESL at the Houston Community College, and while there, I also tutored students in the Language Lab. I can offer you coaching in the following areas: Conversation; Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced Grammar; and Writing. You may contact me if you need instruction or help with revisions; or, if you just want me to proofread your written material, I can do that too.

I have also Associate-taught at various school districts in Houston where I gained considerable experience coaching children and young adults in the Language Arts.

I'm a devoted and committed tutor. My method of teaching is thorough and medium-paced. My reasonable fee is non-negotiable. For long-term ESL students, my first lesson is free. I allow you to make a decision about continuing with me after the lesson, and letting me know through email. I can meet you at your place, at a coffee shop near you, or at one near me. My hours are flexible on weekdays and weekends.

I check my email twice a day. When you call my land-line and there is no connection, it means I'm online. Shoot me an email or call another time. I disclose my cell number to committed students only.

I have studied Spanish grammar and speak the language somewhat; this, I'm sure, will be of some help to students whose native language is Spanish. I must also add that I have traveled to many places on the globe and have gained an international perspective on many things that I delight in bringing to the table.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Art History

I have an M.A. in Art History. If you need help writing high school or undergraduate papers on Art or Art History, I am the one to approach.

English

I taught ESL at the Houston Community College, where I also tutored students at the Language Lab. I can help you brainstorm ideas for a thesis, clear doubts about grammar and the writing process, and proofread your work for errors.

ESL/ESOL

I taught at the Houston Community College as an adjunct instructor of ESL for a period of three years. I also tutored there, at their lab, where I saw students who had persistent problems in comprehending difficult grammatical points. I also went over papers for correct sentence structure, helped revise and rewrite paragraphs, and finally, proofread the papers for mechanical errors.

Grammar

I have tutored native and international students at the Houston Community College, helping them with persistent problems in grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure.

Literature

I can help you comprehend and analyze literary material, and also check your analytical papers for clarity, elucidation, cohesiveness, and structure. I can also help with creative work, like the short story and poetry (adults and children).

Writing

I have taught Composition at the Houston Community College to students of ESL. I have also tutored (in the same college) both native and international students at the Language Lab, helping them with papers on pretty much any subject matter, be it in the expository, analytical, or creative style of writing.
