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.

ESL/ESOL

I have a great deal of experience working as an ESL tutor and instructor. I have worked with many private students in the Peoria area ranging in age from six years old to adult. I worked as an ESL tutor for two years for college students and graduate students while I attended graduate school at Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia. Furthermore, I taught a month-long ESL intensive to exchange students through the ASSE program here in Peoria in the summer of 2005. The intensive helped prepare foreign students for their year in American high schools. Finally, I taught ESL full time at New York Language Center in New York City in Manhattan and Queens. I taught Levels Basic, Intermediate, Advanced, and TOEFL Prep. I often taught classes where I had students from more than twenty countries in one class. I love teaching English, and I love learning from students with different cultural backgrounds.

Public Speaking

I have two degrees in theatre and have taught speech and public speaking on the college level. I have judged speech tournaments for the Illinois High School Association and have made and given several speeches.

Voice (Music)

I have a Master's degree in Media and Performing Arts. I have been singing my entire life. I studied private voice in college and graduate school, and I have sung in both madrigal and chorale ensembles. I currently sing in the Peoria Area Civic Chorale. In addition to this, I have performed in numerous musicals and concerts. I recently performed in Songs For A New World at The Waterhouse in downtown Peoria.
