Also, I produced and directed a publicly presented home-school play. Currently, I write theater history manuals and produce videos for the Academy of the Arts in Ft. Lauderdale, Fl.

Special Needs

Compassion and patience are the most important characteristics of anyone working with special needs students. As a substitute teacher for twenty years (1982-2003), I was placed in many classrooms for the handicapped. Bright Horizons is one of those special schools I was privileged to gain experience in. Sycamore High School was another. Indian Hill Middle School offered integrated classrooms for special needs students. I learned to look beyond the physical and focus on the spirit of a person, meeting that individual where he or she is.

Awesome English Tutor!

First class with Bonny today. She has a nice attitude and excellent knowledge in writing and grammar. Bonny came in prepared. She wrote all the notes at the same time identified corrections needed with sentence structures and references. I learned so much from her. Bonny is also pleasant, I was able to achieve my goal with this paper today. I wished I knew Bonny few months ago, however she will always be my go to English tutor in the future. I cannot wait to work with her again.

Elisabeth, 1 lesson with Bonny
Tutor responded:

This lesson required reading two drafts of research papers and combining them into one paper. I pre-read the material. The task took almost two hours in class. We achieved the desired result.

Absolutely the sweetest

I had my first session with Bonny and she was very helpful. I felt very comfortable and learned techniques to enhance my speaking skills . I’m looking forward to our next session .

Raven, 1 lesson with Bonny
Tutor responded:

Public speaking students need encouragement and pointers on perfecting their skills. I use YouTube for my students’ presentations. This gives them confidence.

Responsive and Timely proofreading

Bonny reviewed and edited two graduate school entry essays. She fine-tuned my ideas and helped create cohesively formated work. I would highly recommend her services.

Rebekah, 2 lessons with Bonny
Tutor responded:

This student is applying for admission to universities. I am skilled and practiced in editing college applications.

Bonny is a great tutor

I worked with Bonny several times. She is patient and listens carefully when I have questions. She's also flexible. She proofreads the documents for me on short notice. I would recommend Bonny to others for any writing/editing related needs.

Chieh, 2 lessons with Bonny
Tutor responded:

Listening carefully helps me to teach what each student needs. I try to answer emergency situations, but I would rather have reasonable notice. The best editing requires more than one proofreading.

Really helped me!

I had some serious writer’s block and Bonny really helped me map out what I wanted to write about. She made me feel more confident in my abilities!

Audrey, 2 lessons with Bonny
Tutor responded:

I’ve had writers block, so I was prepared to encourage this Master’s student to continue at the point of the blockage. We discussed the topic and decided how to proceed.

Writing business

She thought me how to write a business letters and new vocabulary. How to pronounce the words such as applicable, excessive, and appropriate. I can not ask for a better teacher than her.

Mahshid, 3 lessons with Bonny
Tutor responded:

Students from other countries often need exercises in reading as well as grammar. Business writing and telephone communication must be clear and concise.

Knowledgeable and Patient

Last week was my first lesson with Bonny, and she seems very patient and knowledgeable. I am looking foresrd to continuing learning from her and improved ng my writing skills. Also, I like that she takes a note during my leason, so she knows what I need to work on the next lesson.

Miranda, 18 lessons with Bonny
Tutor responded:

Preparation for lessons is important. I study to become more knowledgeable about each student’s needs.

Knowledgeable and Nice

I approached Bonny about voice acting. She gave me a few quick tips/pointers on my first few script readings to help me identify and embody different characters! I plan to use this information on my next few auditions! Cannot wait for the next lesson!

Jacob, 3 lessons with Bonny
Tutor responded:

Teaching acting is great fun! I studied the Stanislavsy Method and have been in a number of plays. This student has much potential, and he is willing to work to perfect the art.

Friendly and helpful tutor

Bonny is an awesome tutor. She taught me many things such as vocabulary, grammar, analyzing texts, idioms, and so on. She is very patient and gives me the right tools to improve my English. I don't hesitate to work with her every week. Thank you Bonny for your support.

Chaymae, 6 lessons with Bonny

My ESOL students need a variety of materials to advance their skills. I am continually researching to keep them interested.
