I have earned a four-year degree from an American university and a CELTA certification. I am confident that I can help because I love my job and I have a lot of experience. I have taught on the college and university levels. I have worked with many students from all over the world, of different ages, and at various levels. To make it convenient for my students, I travel anywhere in and around Houston.

All my students say that I am patient and make them feel comfortable. My students also say that I have a unique and effective way of teaching. One of my students said it this way: "Adam, you really know how to put the eye on the dragon!"

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 have specialized training (CELTA certificate) and a comfortable, friendly approach that helps student reach their potential. I have taught students from all over the world at the college and university levels, and privately. Also, because I am learning a second language (Italian), I can understand the challenges an ESL student faces. I can customize an program to fit an individual's needs to maximize their potential.

Reading

I have a passion and love for reading that motivates me to utilize my teaching abilities to educate others. Based on my experience teaching at the college and university levels, I am qualified to increase your reading comprehension ability and efficiency. I can also show you how reading can help you write and speak better. Based on my experience of teaching over 1000 hours with students from all over the world, I am confident that my approach will provide results. Whether you want to read better to make you more valuable at work, or to appreciate literature such as The Great Gatsby, I can help.

Speech

My ESL/ESOL training (Certificate in Teaching English to Adults - CELTA) included how to teach pronunciation. My experience in teaching speech includes over 100 hours of teaching the proper ways to move and shape the mouth, lips, and tongue to properly form all the sounds of the English language in accordance with standard methods and texts. The teaching of proper intonation is also included in teaching speech in an ESL context.
