About Bob

Hello,

My name is Bob and I am looking forward to helping you with your English (ESL) tutoring needs. I have been helping students that are learning English as their second language for over 8 years. My experience includes both structured group learning sessions at a community center to small group and one on one training sessions in an in home setting. I have found that the best learning environment is one where my students can feel free to be themselves, have fun, and discover their true learning potential.

No one has all the answers and everyone comes to a point in their educational journey where they may need a little help understanding a subject. English can be very tricky sometimes and the best way to get through it is working with someone you can trust to discuss, practice and learn with.

My only expectation is that you try and turn learning into a fun experience that you enjoy. That makes all the difference !

I have worked for years with individuals that used English as their second language ranging from Junior High school level through Advanced Business contracting overseas. I worked overseas for over 12 years and had the opportunity to help many students that wanted to improve and build their English speaking capabilities. My students have used structured academic programs that follow a specific desired level of English mastery to more informal English conversation sessions that fine tune the natural flow of English skills they already have.

Specific areas I specialize in include;
- ESL (Elementary / Middle / High School / and College Level assistance)
- TESOL
- English Conversation (Daily Conversation Skills / Current Events)
- U.S. Citizenship Test Preparation
- Paper editing and reviews

I tell all my students that you have the potential to accomplish great things, once you believe in yourself, admit your not perfect, and are willing to do what it takes to master your challenges, then anything is possible. If your ready to take control of your educational goals then contact me today!

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

It is one thing to know what to say it is another thing altogether to know how to say it. The English language has many nuances that can only be learned through consistent effort and a strong dedication to master the subject matter. I help students practice the language through applied English conversation situations and drills.

ESL/ESOL

I have had both one on one and group ESL tutoring clients. ESL conversation sessions can cover a wide variety of learning platforms. These range from English conversation using current events and daily interest factors to structure the session to more formal goal achievements using grammar specific subject topics.

Grammar

Grammar is the glue that binds the English language. My passion for reading all my life has given me a trained ear for the appropriate use of key English phrases and conversational grammar. I help students gain the skill of knowing when and where to use the right grammar to properly convey the desired message.

TOEFL

TOEFL is a more specific objective driven tutor environment. This is where we will focus on areas that are challenging for the student, and where the goal id to achieve better performance in these areas. Here there is great value on building a pre- and post-tutor assessments to gauge the results and value of the tutoring session. These sessions are also usually timeline driven, so efficiency and effectiveness go hand in hand.

Vocabulary

Vocabulary to me is like having the option to best describe a thought or idea to your intended audience. A strong vocabulary needs to built upon through practice and application. I help students put new vocabulary words into action and help them pinpoint their exact meaning of expressed ideas through definitive words.
