I am an experienced tutor who has worked as a university instructor, high school instructor for the Early College program, as a substitute for the Newport Mesa school district and finally, has tutored privately both for services and on my own, as well as for the No Child Left Behind reading program. In addition to my own field of history, in which I hold a PhD, I can help with English, having written an 800 page dissertation and also Algebra, since I have at least two years of Calculus under my belt. I adore teaching and often say if it moves, I am liable to try to teach it something! I get results because I understand from my own experience that if trying to teach something one way isn't working, just framing the issue another way often helps.

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.
ESL/ESOL requires competency in the native language of the speaker if absolutely no English is spoken. However, if the student has some English already, the tutor is required to administer oral and written tests to ascertain in which areas the students needs emphasis in their instruction. I speak German, Spanish and Russian, and am therefore able to help speakers in those languages increase their English capabilities. Immersion in oral, written and visual interactions in English is optimal with ESL instruction and can lead to rapid improvement in language competency.
