If selected, 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.

All of Peg’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Peg’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

ACT English

WyzAnt requires all its tutors to pass a qualifying examination in each subject before we begin teaching it, and my fluency in English allowed me to pass ACT English creditably.

We will begin sessions with sample ACT questions, to determine what level of skill the student is presently working from, and then increase vocabulary and composition skills from there.

I find that one of the best ways to improve writing skills is to practice regularly, and I am glad to help all my students with that.

I obtained my B.A, from Towson State in 1975, have been writing personally for decades, as well as proofreading, and tutoring English.

ESL/ESOL

At the beginner level, I will work with you to help you become fluent in English. Together, we will develop a list of daily phrases and sentences that you need, for work or school. I will help you practice these phrases and sentences, and become familiar with thinking and speaking them.

If you have already begun learning English, I can also help you expand your vocabulary. We will discuss exceptions to gramatical rules in English, and learn about word contractions like they've and we'll.

I can also tutor you in reading English.

I have Skype, and can tutor online, as well as in person.

Proofreading

I proofread both nonfiction and fiction. My most recent fiction proofreading credit is for science fiction novel Warpaint by Holly Lisle, released December 2012. My name is listed in the acknowledgements as part of the proofreading team.

Spanish

I studied Spanish for 7 years, and have used it in practical context, from communicating with Spanish speaking neighbors from Mexico, to giving directions at the bus stop to passengers who did not yet speak English.

From a tutoring standpoint, I like to give my students weekly links that combine Spanish vocabulary with a cartoon, or story. By keeping practice interesting, people are likely to continue doing it longer. If the student is comfortable with singing, I will teach songs in Spanish, as well. We will also include word games, like Scrabble, In Spanish, that incorporate the week's vocabulary words.

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.
