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.

ESL/ESOL

I have performed more than 500 practicum, student-teaching, and field experience hours in grades K-5, high school, and 2-year college ESOL classrooms while earning my Masters of Arts in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. My other teaching experiences include substituting middle school and elementary school classes, tutoring algebra, teaching and training Army soldiers for eight years.

My ESOL students have come from fifteen different countries with various previous schooling backgrounds that ranged from no schooling to university graduates. I have worked with students in Kindergarten to adults from Entering to Bridging levels of English proficiency in listening, reading, writing and speaking.

Phonics

I have taught phonics and phonemic awareness for more than 6 years to beginning readers and students learning English. I incorporate traditional lessons with pictures and games to help students enjoy learning and look forward to learning to read for a lifetime.

Reading

I am a certified teacher with a Reading endorsement. I've tutored elementary school and high school students in reading to improve skills ranging from basic letter sounds to reading comprehension. I would be glad to assist your child with improving his/her reading skills, which will in turn improve his/her other academic areas and personal confidence.

Spanish

Hola! I took Spanish classes throughout middle school, high school, and college, but did well because I took opportunities to practice speaking with native speakers and continue to do so today. You can do well with practice as well! I can help you as a beginner through advanced beginner level with pronunciation, vocabulary, verb conjugation, conversation, and enjoying the learning experience.
