About Skyler

Hello, my name is Skyler and I teach English at an international school in Santa Barbara (EF) to high school and college-aged students. The courses I teach now or have taught in the past include General English (B2.1, B2.3, C1.1, C1.2), Grammar & Idioms, Music & Poetry, Film Studies, Cambridge Exam Prep and Fundamentals of English.

I am a recent graduate from Westmont College with a B.A. in Religious Studies and a minor in English. I have five years of tutoring experience with a specialization in writing and the humanities.

Over the years I've learned that a combination of patience and an understanding that every individual learns and communicates in different ways are essential. In the beginning of each session I will ask the student what his/her short-term and long-term objectives in the tutored subject, then together we will devise a plan to take steps toward both goals. In every session my objective is to make writing fun. :)

If you have any additional questions feel free to contact me!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Bible Studies

I have been a Biblical Studies major for two years now; first at Gordon College, and now at Westmont College. I took classes such as Old Testament, New Testament, Intro to Biblical Studies, Geography of the Bible, and Missiology. I went to Israel on a three week seminar to learn about the geography of the Bible. I also led a Bible study with five teenage girls in the summer of 2012.

Study Skills

I currently have a 3.6 cumulative GPA in college due to study habits and skills that I have come to learn. I make flash cards, create memory games, rewrite notes, make sample worksheets, make online quizzes, re-highlight notes, etc. If I was to tutor a child in study skills, depending on their age I would choose one of these methods. I know that memory games work for all ages and are the easiest tool to help my learning.

Writing

I currently serve as the Op/Ed editor for Westmont's student newspaper publication. I am responsible for overseeing and editing each article in my section, along with adding the occasional contribution.
