Language and Communication are my specialties.
I hold a Masters Degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages and have taught ESL: Reading, Writing, Speaking, Listening and Pronunciation in both adult and community college settings. I studied French for 8 years and lived in France as well, where I did private tutoring and taught English to business people. I have more than 20 years of teaching experience. I work with students on a one to one basis in order to uncover where the gaps in understanding exist. My approach is often multi-modal and always creative, as I believe that the pathways to understanding a particular subject area and the ability to progress in that area may come from other more familiar disciplines. For example, I am a visual person. I learned to write well when I was able to connect my visual abilities with the need and desire to write.
I have also worked in film and video, am an independent filmmaker with numerous awards and other credits. I can assist with some of the current editing programs: Final Cut Pro, Avid, Premiere, etc. Language and Communication are my specialties.

Roberta's reviews drew me detailed pictures about her lessons and my kids participation during the last section. I greatly appreciate her time focusing on teaching my kids and time for the detailed report. With her report, I can help my kids put more focusing, or pay more attention in the areas they were lacking off.
Thanks for your feedback, Jenny. It pleases me to know that you find the reports helpful. We are a team, all four of us!
Roberta is an excellent tutor who continues to push forward with teaching our guys English even though there has been a continual problem with getting the guys to show up each week. She works very well with the guys and is able to get them to participate and be active in class. The guys who attend the class feel very comfortable with her and I think respond well to her style of teaching.
I'm satisfied with my tutor. She helped me correct grammar mistakes and made my application polished. I hope get help from her until my application is complete.
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 am an award-winning film/video maker with numerous grants for production and distribution to my credit.
I am most comfortable teaching editing on either Premiere or Final Cut Pro systems.
I can definitely help you get started on one of these programs and if you are feeling shy about jumping in.
I participated in several Writing Process Seminars for teachers, as graduate course work, in addition to my Masters Program course work.
I struggled with writing as a young person, but discovered the secret to being able to write through another medium that I loved. I do believe that the secret can be applied to help anyone who struggles with writing.
