Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

English

I taught English as a second language for many years, both at California State University, Long Beach, and in adult education classes in various unified school districts. My specialty is preparation for the TOEFL exam, which I once took myself, although my native language is English. I studied several foreign languages in college and graduate school and am fluent in Spanish, nearly so in Portuguese, and speak competent French and also passable German.
I have a wealth of teaching materials and my own copy machine at home so I am able to create lessons tailored for each individual student's needs.
I live in Long Beach and have a reliable vehicle.

ESL/ESOL

I have a TESL certificate from California State University, Long Beach, and many years of experience teaching and tutoring ESL. I have a thorough knowledge of English grammar, vocabulary, spelling, punctuation, etc. I am a very patient and kind instructor.

Grammar

I have a thorough knowledge of English spelling, grammar, usage, and punctuation. I taught the fine points of English for many years to students from all over the world to prepare them for
the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) which is a high tech grammar, spelling, and usage test that most native English speakers could not pass.

Proofreading

I have extensive experience teaching and proofreading both English and Spanish. I have a thorough knowledge of the grammar, spelling, and punctuation of both languages. I am currently doing precise proofreading for a hospital administrator to perfect the documents she has to submit as a part of her job.

Spanish

I am fluent in both English and Spanish and have a thorough knowledge of the grammar, spelling, punctuation, and vocabulary of both languages. I worked as a Spanish (and occasionally Portuguese) interpreter for a total of sixteen years. I have a wealth of teaching materials in my possession and my own printer/copier at home so I can create lesson materials tailored to each student's needs and level of proficiency.

Writing

I have been an English teacher for many years. I have a thorough knowledge of English grammar, spelling, usage, vocabulary, and punctuation. I have done a lot of proofreading for professionals in various fields who need to submit reports that have to be as perfect as possible.
