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.

Bible Studies

I am the sole Bible translator of the Vietnamese Bible from English. I have also taught as an adjunct professor at Dallas Theological Seminary for two years. I have written a book on Basic Christian Doctrines and Bible Handbook for New Christians to introduce new Christians to the Bible.

ESL/ESOL

I have a master's in ESL from the University of Northern Iowa. I have taught ESL to foreign born students for more than 20 years from College down to high school level. I also have presented many papers at ESL conferences both national and regional. I myself was an ESL students years ago. So I can share my personal and professional experiences with them.

I am a native Vietnamese and have graduated from the University of Saigon with a Bachelor in English and Vietnamese linguistics. I have taught Vietnamese to American Missionaries in Vietnam and Americans who want to learn the language to communicate orally or to improve their reading skills. Depending on the needs of the students I can teach them to speak or to read the language.

The best choice for us!

We have struggled with math and my daughter for many years! This summer we decided to get her help and hired Tam Pham as her tutor. This was the best choice we ever made! She just started 8th grade and has received A's in all her assignments and her confidence is through the roof! I highly recommend Tam Pham!
