About Zion

Learning a language can be frightening. You may feel nervous using the most simple of English phrases. I can help you get beyond your fear and start to have fun using your English skills. I find that in my years of teaching and working with young people from around the world curiosity crosses most cultures and sometimes correcting word order in questions is the little thing that opens up the language for you. Maybe you feel rushed. Maybe American society moves so fast for you that you are intimidated to ask someone to slow down. You can work with me in a comfortable environment and build your self esteem in using the language more fluently.

I will ensure that you understand grammar in all situations and learn valuable grammar for whatever topic you would like to learn. I am an experienced ESL instructor in San Francisco. I have been voted teacher of the term and many students prefer my teaching style over others. I am a patient instructor, focused on applying the language to you. I realize that learning styles are unique like the student. You can trust that the materials were customized for your level and style of learning. All you have to do is bring the the willingness to learn and practice. I hope you will take some learning techniques and make them your own as you continue into the future with your learning.

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 TEFL certified through UCBerkeley. I am an employee of an international school, where I have taught English for the past three years. I've taught beginning English through Business English.

Grammar

Having taught English at many levels within the past four years, I have a lot of experience in discussing and demonstrating grammatical points quite clearly. I use a few different methods in teaching grammar. I believe it is most effective to apply the grammar to everyday life. Once students have an understanding of the appropriate time to use a specific grammar point they feel that much more independent in using the language. They begin to feel successful.

Vocabulary

I am an employee of an International School, where I have taught English for the past three years. I've taught beginning English through Business English. One of the major strengths of this institution is the importance of speaking the language. Vocabulary is a very important component of language and the understanding of structure doesn't help in basic communication or business if one doesn't understand or know vocabulary. Learning through visual, verbal or mapping can be used to increase vocabulary.
