I am an enthusiastic adult school teacher with over 25 years of experience. I taught ESL, Citizenship, GED preparation and Spanish at the Salinas Adult school. I also trained teachers in using cooperative learning strategies and a variety of teaching methods including visual, aural, and kinesthetic (hands-on). I really enjoy teaching. In addition to creating instructional handouts, I created several videos to welcome and orient our students and to help students prepare for their citizenship interview.
I am eager to help you succeed with your goal. I use a variety of strategies until the "aha" moment arrives. I believe in your ability to make progress even if you have struggled in the past. I would like to work with you at least once a week, and I have a fairly flexible schedule.
I look forward to hearing from you and being of assistance to you in your studies. I am an enthusiastic adult school teacher with over 25 years of experience. I taught ESL, Citizenship, GED preparation and Spanish at the Salinas Adult school. I also trained teachers in… Read more
An has been a perfect match for my son ... Always patient and has been quite flexible working with my son who travels the country playing tennis competitively.
Foreign Language is not a strength and An has made it as "fun" as it can be !!
We would absolutely refer An as a Spanish Tutor!!!
An is personable and nice, but quit after 4 sessions without notice, telling me her schedule had changed and we should get a tutor from MPC. When I emailed her to inquire further about why she quit, I did not get a reply. My son felt An helped him in the sessions he had with her. After we were into the tutoring 2 sessions, An informed me she was not really a geometry tutor. I let WyzAnt know and the subject is off of her tutor topic list.
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 taught English as a Second Language for 30 years at the Salinas Adult School. I also taught ESL and ESL video classes at the Pacific Grove Adult School. While most of my students have been from Mexico, I have worked with students from many countries including China, Vietnam, Turkey, Korea and others. Since I have a BA in Spanish from Monterey Institute of International Studies, I am especially effective in working with native Spanish speakers.
Before graduating with a BA in Spanish from the Monterey Institute of International Studies (now Middlebury), I studied in Valencia, Spain and I spent two summers at UNAM - a University in Mexico City. I worked full-time for 4 years with the United Farm Workers in the 70's and worked in Calexico and Coachella with the field workers. I use Spanish in my volunteer work at a diabetes clinic and at a non-profit agency serving Latino seniors. I have several Spanish textbooks and I include Spanish music if the student like to learn thru music.
