About Margaret

I am an Occupational Therapy Assistant, and have taught handwriting for 15 years in elementary schools in U.S. and at an international therapy studio in Saigon, Vietnam.

I am qualified to tutor English as a Second Language, and have experience teaching English to young Vietnamese children and young Vietnamese university students.

At the end of the course, I love to compare the initial handwriting samples to the final ones with the students, and watch their faces light up when they see how much they have progressed. It makes all my efforts worthwhile.

I like to challenge my students, but at the same time make it fun, as I believe PLAY is the work of the child, for the younger 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.

Handwriting

I worked as a certified occupational therapist in a school district and taught printing and cursive handwriting. I took many handwriting courses and became eligible to teach the program "Handwriting Without Tears" written by Jan Olsen, OT from pre-school to cursive.

This program uses a very kinesthetic approach.
