What I do best is engage students one-on-one or in very small groups. The conscientious student will learn the material, and will learn to think critically about the material. Chances are that we will have a good time doing it. [That's really all I have to say, but the form I'm filling out requires a minimum of 250 words for some unexplained reason (no critical thinking allowed?) so I'm continuing to write, giving you some background and maybe insight into the process I'm going through to get the chance to help you learn to be able to think independently for yourself. I wonder if that's 250 yet.]
I am currently teaching English to students from Poland and India, for whom English is a second language. My strong background in English speaking and writing, as well as theatre and public speaking, enable me to do this very well. I work hard to tailor all my classes to the student's specific needs.
For five years I was head of the drama department at the Woodstock Country School, grades 9-12, where I taught acting classes and directed plays.
For about 20 years I directed a small comedy company in which my work included working with actors in different media -- radio, television, stage. I was also one of the actors.
For about 20 years (overlapping), I presided as a judge in small claims court, where I was practicing public speaking all the time.
My tutoring approach would vary, depending on the goals of the student.
