About Delores L

Hi there potential student: I will be delighted to help you with the study of French, Spanish, Reading, Public Speaking. I have experience teaching all levels, pre-school, middle school, high school, college, and adults in the work force. I love teaching students and have the ability to understand an individual's hurdle to becoming a successful student. I have a long experience in teaching. My experience with teaching foreign languages has provided me with skills to teach reading,and writing. Very often, the difficulty lies in spending quality time with the study, and learning study techniques which assist in the retention of material learned. I have written foreign language course materials and tested the materials in my own classes. I have also worked as a department head, assisting new teachers to more fully realize their potential as successful teachers.

I have worked as a translator for Faxon Subscription Services, translating documents for this company for at least 8 years, prior to their leaving the state of Massachusetts. I have translated brochures for the office of District Attorney, serving the area of Brockton Mass. I have enjoyed teaching adults in the work place. My first experience was at a publishing firm, Horizon Publishing, Westwood, MA; my second experience was with the Brockton Housing Authority, teaching the rental agents, rental administrators. I am proud of my extensive vocabulary.

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.

English

I was certified to teach English, as a teaching minor. Teaching English coincides very well with the teaching of foreign languages. The study of other languages gives one a greater appreciation of one's own language. Speaking English well in enhanced when one has the opportunity to add to one's vocabulary. Having a broad vocabulary adds to a person's credibility and to a person's ability to communicate well, orally and in writing.

ESL/ESOL

ESL/ESOL is a perspective designed to assist foreign speaking students with the study of English. With my background in French and Spanish, I believe that I can be very helpful to foreign speaking individuals in the learning of English. Past experience has included the teaching of English to Japanese, Haitian and Portuguese students.

French

The learning of French can be approached on a variety of levels. I believe that you find the level of language proficiency that the student possesses, and build on it. A beginner requires a different approach than a working professional needing to function in a specific environment. The obstacles to overcome in the learning of French, is to learn to listen well, as the pronunciation is sometimes frustrating. I am fluent, and I have had opportunities to use my French skills, working as a professional translator for the Plymouth District Attorney; working as an instructor for professionals working the Brockton Housing Authority; working as 10-12 year translator for subscription service agency. Years of experience in the teaching of pre-school, middle school, high school, community college and university students have enhanced my knowledge and use of the language.

Public Speaking

I hold a regional state championship in a decathelon, state of Michigan as a high school student. I enjoyed winning seasons as a debator during my high school experience. I have worked very hard and I am very proud of my ability to speak with pure diction and an understanding of the English language. My speaking abilities are augmented by my ability to speak French and Spanish, broadening my vocabulary base.

Spanish

To learn Spanish in our ever changing world is a very important asset to add to one's resume. I have long been a fan of people being able to communicate in languages other than their native language. Learning an other language brings with it a desire to know more about the people who speak that language. Knowing our neighbors better is the cornerstone of greater tolerance for each other. In modern United States, and going forward, speaking Spanish is very important and makes your resume stand out.
