About Faye A.


Bio

I have retired from teaching public high school English classes and would love to continue aiding young people and adults with their reading comprehension, analysis, vocabulary, language usage, writing, editing and speaking skills. For 24 years, I helped students graduate high school and prepare for college. Not only did I tutor individual students during lunch and after school--especially on their applications, resumes and research papers--but also I have tutored and edited outside school....

I have retired from teaching public high school English classes and would love to continue aiding young people and adults with their reading comprehension, analysis, vocabulary, language usage, writing, editing and speaking skills. For 24 years, I helped students graduate high school and prepare for college. Not only did I tutor individual students during lunch and after school--especially on their applications, resumes and research papers--but also I have tutored and edited outside school. Tailoring my methods and our approaches as well as study content stimulates clients' learning. Currently in the Public Library's Literacy Program, I use required and individually chosen sources suited to clients' skills and interests.

As a California Credentialed high school English teacher, I led five diverse classes daily. They included many non-native speakers as well as native, from disadvantaged and wealthy families, youth who had difficulty concentrating or believing in their potentials, and those who already had good work habits and great grades. I followed city and state standards in planning my own units and lessons as well as in preparing students for uniform exams. In addition, I worked with students on projects they themselves designed.

Though not now fluent in other languages, I certainly studied and practiced Spanish, French, bits of Latin and German, plus, for 5 years, Chinese. Thus, I met challenges and can empathize with students now similarly striving. Through high school, college, graduate school, and retraining for teaching high school English, I stretched myself, developed some talent and "had a life."

As a tutor, I am adept at working with students plus coordinating plans with their parents and teachers. Students, teachers, and counselors always have found me enunciating clearly, agreeable in manner, flexible, and attentive. I hope you will also.

Please write me through WyzAnt.com or phone me, discuss my fee, and tell me your needs as well as preferred meeting place. When we meet, I hope you will have your texts, assignments and/or other English-related projects. Meanwhile, I look forward to your response.

Handwriting

One's handwriting still has daily uses for most people, and I have used a Los Angeles Public Library cursive handwriting text to help an adult learn cursive. I had to submit my application essay to the School of Education at California State University Northridge in handwriting because teachers need to have all their communications legible. Over my 24 years of teaching classes, I have worked with youth on their writing more clearly and legibly for their classwork, homework, and essays as well as on their using uppercase and lowercase letters. Of course, if my writing on handouts, transparencies, and the classroom board was not acceptable to students, I had to correct it. I respect the teaching of pencil/pen strokes in certain order and direction because that enabled me to learn not just our English writing but also Chinese character writing.

Very impressed with quality of work

I have had several sessions with Mrs. Faye and I have been very impressed with her professionalism and dedication. She has gone out of her way to help me out with shorts coming in English and in particular with grammar. I highly recommend her as an English tutor. Ana

Very knowledgeable and Patient tutor: Excellent Communication

I had one lesson so far with Faye and I can tell that her enthusiasm and her patience to help students and others alike goes far beyond the standard of what most people advertise for. Consistent communication and excellent ability to read the student's situation makes this tutor excellent for your academic needs. Would highly recommend!
