About Pepper

Hello!
My name is Pepper and I have been teaching for more than 11 years. I started in this field because I was interested in travel, and wanted to have time with my son while I was in college. As a result, I learned more about people and the importance motivations have on the ability to learn, retain and feel confident communicating and living in the culture of English speaking communities.
In practice, I have taught students from kindergarten, to retirees re-entering the work force. I have experience with cultures and customs from little known provinces, as well as familiarity with the more prominent immigrant and refugee language learning communities.
I enjoy learning about my students' views on the world as we work to achieve their learning goals, and I take joy in the opportunity to help others find their voice in any language.

I'm excited to speak with you and find out more about you and your educational goals! The more power and control you are given, the faster you will learn (and the more fun you will have doing it)! Hope to hear from you soon...

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.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I have worked with people from 5 to 60 years of age with autism in the classroom, in a group residential facility and one-on-one in their homes. I have experience implementing educational, social, and employment skill development curriculum targeted by IEPs in both California and Missouri.

English

The basics we learn in elementary school can be trusted to shape and organize our work as adult writers. My job as your tutor is to remind you of what you know and teach you what you don't know. The end result is a product you can be proud of.

ESL/ESOL

My masters degree is in TESOL. I have taught as part of a team of adult educators in community colleges, and as the head of a vocational program with online and in-person, group and individual classes. I love teaching because learning is a process, and I get to watch it happen right in front of me.

Grammar

Grammar instruction does not have to be intimidating! Building understanding about the smaller pieces of English based on the students' knowledge and experience with communicating, creates a safe environment for learning and making mistakes.

Homeschool

I have tutored and taught grade-schoolers and adults since 2006. My degree and teaching experience includes both vocational, and common core curriculum. I am also able to adhere to state requirements for records keeping.

IELTS

My IELTS students will receive a rubric score for each lesson based on the IELTS bands. I have an MA in TESOL and am familiar with the challenges for adult and adolescent non-native speakers during testing.

Sociology

My associates and bachelors degrees are in Sociology. It is compelling, salient, and one of my favorite subjects. Developing an understanding of this science will help the student comprehend and navigate society on a larger scale.

Thanks Pepper

Pepper tought me not only language but also culture. It was usuful to understand this county. She suggested me to improve pronounciation. We practiced how to pronounce vowels. Education tools which she used were easy to undestand.
