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 have more than 25 years experience teaching English as a Second Language at all levels to learners from all parts of the world. I have taught pronunciation, writing, conversation, and grammar. I’ll be happy to customize lessons to meet your individual needs.

Grammar

I have a California State Teaching Credential for teaching high school English. I have tutored all grade levels. Mostly I have taught grammar extensively to adults in adult school, college, and summer exchange programs.

TOEFL

I feel qualified to tutor prospective TOEFL-takers because I have a Master’s degree in Applied Linguistics. I have taught ESL in community college, adult school, and summer exchange programs. I briefly taught a TOEFL prep class at Watsonville Adult School.

Writing

I have a California State Teaching Credential (from San Jose State University) in teaching high school English. I have taught composition to college ESL students for over 20 years. I teach writing to all levels.
