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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been teaching at the college level since 2001, but I have also had extensive experience babysitting as well as tutoring children. While I have primarily tutored children in foreign languages, I am well versed in children's books and have always excelled at math and science as well. I recently passed a background check with District 11, and I tutor math and ESL for the Pikes Peak Library District.

English

Since 1999, I have tutored native speakers of Spanish, Italian, and Korean, helping them improve their writing skills, reading comprehension, conversation skills, and pronunciation of English. In addition, I am a volunteer with the public library system's ESL/adult literacy program. I hold two Master's degrees and a doctorate, and have been a university professor for three years.

ESL/ESOL

I have been helping native speakers of Spanish, Italian, and Korean improve their English comprehension and production skills since I began tutoring one of my Spanish professors (a native of Colombia) in 1999. I recently participated in volunteer training at the public library and will be tutoring ESL students there. Having learned two foreign languages myself and having taught German at the university level for eight years, I understand very well the difficulties and rewards inherent in acquiring a new language as an adult.

German

In 1996, my high school German teacher recommended me as a tutor for a younger student who was struggling in second-year German. After helping him raise his grade in the class from an F to a B, I was hooked on tutoring and have been helping students and community members improve their German ever since.

I have a doctorate in Modern German Literature and Culture from Indiana University. I have lived, studied, and taught in Germany and Austria several times. Since 2001, I have been teaching German language, literature, and culture classes at the university level, but I still enjoy working with private pupils whenever I can.

Whether you wish to start learning German for fun, need help with a class, or want to brush up on the German you learned years ago, I would be happy to assist you.
