ACT English

I can help you progress in such ACT skills as making comparisons and generalizations, sequence of events, general prose understanding, tone and voice, and your own specific questions on this topic.

English

Your English studies can focus on what you most need or be a careful review of all areas needed. The goal may be to pass a course, be able to graduate or enter a new higher education program, or qualify for a job you are seeking. Grammar rules, spelling, punctuation, capitalization, vocabulary development, and improvement in the various types of composition and essay skills are some of the subjects that we can work on together to meet your goals.

ESL/ESOL

I have both a B.A. in English and a graduate TESOL Certificate and ESL Endorsement in secondary teaching. My intensive, joyful experience with refugees, immigrants, and visitors to the U.S. of all nationalities spans more than 22 years, both at the community-based non-profit adult program where I was the director and in school district programs. I have taught pre-literate to advanced level students from age 17 to 80, in small-group settings. Topics for listening, speaking, reading, and writing ranged from survival skills and citizenship to High School/GED Preparation and job-specific terminology.

Phonics

Phonics and phonemic awareness are the key to becoming a good reader and speller, who can absorb and enjoy all types of texts, for school, pleasure, or skilled employment. We study carefully the sounds of letters, short and long-vowel or double vowel sounds, diphthongs,the varying consonant sounds and blends, voiced and voiceless consonants, silent letters, and other essentials, at age-appropriate levels. The use of sound/example cards, detailed word pairs and comparisons, basic sight words,and academic vocabulary lists for pronunciation practice enliven this topic to promote quick learning gains!

Proofreading

Proofreading is something I do very well, both because of my university training in English and grammar/usage studies in my TESOL certificate training and because I have always been a very good writer and speller, since early youth. My college papers were the ones that were read out loud to the class! I graduated cum laude from BYU. I also wrote successful grant proposals several times a year in my last job (for 20 years). A former job of mine was as Assistant Editor at BYU Press. I'd love to help you.

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
