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.
I have a multiple subject credential and CLAD certificate. After starting with my own first grade class for 7 years, I later did intervention work, substituting, and private tutoring with both elementary age and adults over the past decade.
I am credentialed to teach multiple subjects, and certified to teach ESL.
I have passed all three exams for CTEL: CA teachers of English learners, which qualified me for the CLAD certificate: Cross Cultural Language Acquisition and Development. I have taught ESL privately for both children and adults.
I am a credentialed teacher with experience either teaching or tutoring from Kindergarten to adults. Early in my career, I taught many young students how to print, and later when I subbed in all elementary grades, handwriting was included. I always use white boards with colorful markers and erasers for all ages that I currently tutor, so that the writing process is fun and pressure-free. I have access to many online resources and workbooks for this subject.
I am a credentialed teacher of 30 years, and also have a CLAD certificate which qualifies me to teach all areas of ESL, including working on speech to reduce accents. I obtained this by passing all 3 of the CTEL exams, which stand for California Teacher of English Learners. I work with all ages and all areas of language arts, with a more recent emphasis on privately tutoring ESL. I adapt my instruction for speech according to the learning style and interest of each student. I use recordings and repeating methods for my students to practice saying aloud what they hear or reading along with what I record for them. They set the pace and progression according to their goals.
