Trans World School of Education (Master's)
As a veteran teacher with almost 19 years experience, I have taught and worked with students from diverse background including Europe, the Middle East and CA. I teach to international students at all levels. Reading, writing, grammar, listening, conversation, and spelling to help students achieve mastery in academic and professional English. I have an MA in CTESOL from Trans World School of Educations in San Francisco, CA, where I also worked as an ESL instructor. I have an undergraduate degree from UMKS in Clinical Psychology, Where I specialized in Child Development. I love to tutor in one-on-one situations, because interaction with a student is the best way to the teacher and student to become comfortable with each other where the real learning and progress takes place.
Some information about my policies:
1 - I tutor students of any age. All Education levels, ethnicities, and backgrounds.
2 - If the student is a child, an adult (preferably a parent) must be present at the tutoring session as well.
3 - Tutoring takes place at the student's home or in a public place; such as a library. I will travel 25 miles from 92672 (my home). If we meet outside of that area, I will charge for one-way extra driving time.
4 - If you must cancel a session, please inform me at least 2 hours before the scheduled session. If you cancel within 2 hours of a scheduled session, the late cancellation fee is half of the session time.
5 - If I must cancel or reschedule, I will tutor 30 minutes of the next session for free.

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.
