ESL/ESOL

I have taught English and related subjects -- drama, speech, general humanities/social studies -- in both public and private schools for 14 years.

I have also taught ESL to individuals, small groups and full classrooms ranging in age from young teens to adults. Included among my students were individuals from Japan, China, South America, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia and India. I have worked for a company which provided the curriculum (Japanese exchange students) and have designed programs for other small groups and individuals. Currently I am working almost exclusively with adults who wish to improve their English skills.

Public Speaking

I have taught English and related subjects for 14 years in both the public and private school systems in Washington State. Included in the English curricula were speech and drama. As well as classroom work for Drama, I put on over 20 high school theatre productions. Preparing students for particiation in a dramatic production is the ultimate in teaching "Public Speaking" skills.

I have also taught speech at the high school level as a separate classroom subject I have worked with a valedictorian on her graduation speech and have some experience with debate class.

Study Skills

I have taught English for 14 years in both the public and private school systems. As part of the English curriculum, I taught study skills -- reading comprehension, skimming, summarizing, analyzing, note taking, listening, organizing, test taking, etc. Sometimes these skills were incorporated in a general classroom instruction; sometimes they were taught separately as specific learning skills, especially at the private school which focused on one-on-one instruction. Some of my students at the private school faced challenges such as ADD/ADHD, Asperger's, social anxiety, drug addiction histories, and depression. These students were most likely to need individual instruction in basic study techniques.

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.
