A Few Tutor Qualifications
Since I have served as a lead classroom substitute teacher for three area local school districts since 2008 and have taught in a public classroom for these grades many times I am qualified to tutor elementary (K-6th grade) students. Presently, I substitute for two school districts and I am nearing the completion of state teacher certification.
My qualifications in writing include a bachelor's and a Master's degree in journalism, as well as experience as a newspaper reporter. I also have a teaching license in English as a second language which has allowed me to teach writing to students of all ages. I like making messages clear and concise. In addition, I find joy in fixing grammatical errors!
I'm in constant literary pursuit. Part of my expertise is in Shakespearean literature and performance, which I teach at the college level. I detect variances in spelling in early texts, from when publishing was new; from the time when spelling was more fluid. The Theater is my second home. Among the hundreds of theater works I've been involved in were 10 Shakespeare plays I directed (two of them twice). I teach Acting and Shakespeare at the college level. So, I'm familiar with the development of English language and spelling. I do at least one Sunday NY Times crossword every day. I'm always engaged in different styles of writing, from poems and plays, to press releases.
My B.S. is in System Engineering with a focus on programming and system thinking. My M.S. is in Educational Technology with a focus on programming and instructional design. I am currently teaching computer science courses at the University of Arizona as an Adjunct professor.
I was born in China, so Chinese was my first language. Growing up in the U.S, my parents never learned English so I only speak Chinese with them. Thus, I'm fluent in Chinese (Mandarin). I also took a Chinese reading and writing class in college and received a 4.0.
I currently teach music theory and composition in a classroom lab, using online resources. I am certified in Massachusetts and Maine as a music teacher, both vocal and instrumental, K through 12.
I enjoy the subject immensely and because I am certified in special education, I can modify topics according to level and interest. I look for meaning and relevance of the topics when I teach as well so students are better able to connect to the material.
Precision in written and spoken English is essential to every mode of communication. Additionally, having a large rich vocabulary can keep your writing and speaking fresh and dynamic. It is never too late to build a rich vocabulary. At the elementary level, building a rich vocabulary starts with reading challenging texts and books and looking up new words in the dictionary. I also like to use some vocabulary-building video resources that make the acquisition of new vocab fun for young learners. At the high school, college, and professional levels, having a rich vocabulary is essential for mastering any content area. I love to work on the Latin and Greek roots that form a high percentage of advanced English vocab. I use several books that help with the development of vocabulary and I also help students develop techniques for quickly acquiring and remembering new words. I emphasize the need of practicing the use of new words as well as looking at expert models to understand the correct usage.
I am a recent Regis University graduate who has completed relevant coursework in algebra 2.
I have a BS in applied mathematics and have extensive experience in using Mathematica. I took courses that taught me how to use it and more classes that required the use of Mathematica. I understand the syntax and can help you understand how to use it to achieve your goals.
