Are you looking for an expert and encouraging English or ESOL tutor? I am an experienced Fairfax County Public Schools adult ESOL instructor, and I also have taught middle school Language Arts. I have a Bachelor's degree in History from Brown University, a Master's in Public Affairs from the University of Minnesota, and I currently am working toward certification in Secondary Education with a content-area endorsement in English.

Everyone has enormous untapped power to learn! An expert teacher or tutor is someone who has the patience and creativity to discover and draw upon the strengths of each student. I have a record of success with teenagers, including my own. I look forward to learning about your or your child's unique learning needs and how I might partner with you to help meet them!

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.

ADD/ADHD

For eleven weeks, I was a long-term substitute teacher in middle school self-contained and team-taught Special Education (LD/ED) classrooms which included students with ADD/ADHD. I offered structure, high expectations, and genuine interest in students as individuals, to make learning relevant and engaging. I have the proven ability to help students with ADD/ADHD improve their focus, self-motivation, and self-esteem to enhance their learning.

Aspergers

For eleven weeks, I was a long-term substitute teacher in middle school self-contained Special Education (LD/ED) classrooms which included students with Aspergers. I offered clear structure, high expectations, emotional and social modeling and support, and strong, genuine interest in students as individuals. My goal for students with Aspergers--as for all students--has been to discover each person's unique interests, goals, and combination of cognitive, social, and emotional skills, and to build upon them to create and deliver an effective, engaging curriculum and lessons. I also have experience volunteering as a mentor in a social club for young adults with Aspergers.

Study Skills

I have extensive adult education and secondary school age teaching experience. I have taught adult ESOL for many years, have substitute taught in secondary schools, and I currently am working toward certification in Secondary School English. I earned a 3.9 GPA in graduate school and graduated from Brown University with a degree in History. I can help your family member or you achieve academic success using proven study skills techniques.
