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 am an ESL teacher and work at a language institute in the Financial District. I have over six years experience teaching English to students.

Reading

I am skilled at teaching reading skills. I help students build a strong phonetic foundation and to be familiar with common sight words. I also focus on reading comprehension by asking students to look for the main idea and to be able to summarize and retell the story in their own words. I like to set up an atmosphere where reading is a positive experience that students look forward to doing.

I taught kindergarten students for two years in Taiwan focusing on all of these areas. All of my students excelled at reading. Now, I teach reading to young adults helping them improve their skills and also prepare for the TOEFL test.

Patient & knowledgeable

Patricia is extremely knowledgeable and connected very well with my 9 year old. She is an awesome reading and ESL resource and was able to accomplish a great deal during the session. My daughter is on a regular schedule with Patricia and I'm happy and hopeful about the progress to date. Patricia is a miracle worker!!!
