About Loretta

I recently got certified through Wyzant for their online tutoring program. I am now able to tutor not only in person, but also remotely via online tutoring. I have a degree in English with a concentration in creative writing from the University of Central Florida (UCF). I also have 10-1/2 years of paid experience in the magazine publishing industry, with a concentration in research, proofing, fact checking, punctuation and copy editing. I helped train copy editors who were new to the magazine publishing department. I also have volunteer experience in helping masters students from other countries at UCF with proofing/copy editing their papers and helping them with conversational English. For more than 5 years, I have tutored students of all ages. I enjoy helping students reach academic goals and learn new skills. When a student I'm tutoring grasps a concept and it makes sense to them, I get a lot of joy from being a part of that! Even though I am finished with my schooling, I see life as a life-long learning experience, and that's what I hope to impart to each of my students!

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

While studying for a degree in English at the University of Central Florida I had the opportunity to volunteer as an English conversation partner for students from different countries. What a rewarding experience it was! I so enjoy learning about different cultures and helping people from other countries learn about U.S. culture. I also assisted some of the students who were studying for their masters' degrees with proofing/editing their college paper.

More recently, I have been tutoring several elementary-age students in English conversation and grammar as their dad is in Florida for a year as a guest lecturer at a local university. We make crafts together, play vocabulary games, word games, computer games, talk about places they have been, cook together--any activity that helps them not only hear proper use of English, but to use the language as well in everyday ways. Through reading, writing, conversation, using auditory/visual methods, I feel each student will have the best exposure to the English language, and, hence, be better able to use the language.

Study Skills

When I was a student in high school and in college, I quickly realized that to balance all the courses I was taking I would have to come up with a system to help me juggle it all. Whether it was taking detailed notes in my classes, using highlighting to emphasize importance of material or keeping a calendar with the important due dates for all my classes, I found that organization and paying attention to detail was a large part of maintaining good grades. I encourage my students to borrow some of my study strategies at first, but ultimately, every student is different, so their study styles will be different. My job is to help them find a system that will ultimately work for them and be the foundation of good study habits and successful learning.

Wonderful tutor that loves helping students better themselves

Loretta is an absolutely wonderful tutor. She takes the time to get to know her students and determine how they learn best. Once she figures that out she develops learning goals with the student. She did a great job with my 11th grade son who needed to improve his writing and reading comprehension. My son actually enjoyed his lessons with Loretta a lot and said that the lesson time flew by bec
