About Marti

I hold a master's degree in teaching English to speakers of other languages (TESOL). I'm not certified for K-12, but I love working with adult English learners, tailoring our lessons to fit their specific needs and goals. One of the most gratifying aspects of tutoring, for me, is witnessing those AHA! moments and observing my students' progress.

My students tell me that my English is very easy to understand and that I am patient and encouraging. I also try to make lessons enjoyable, to mix in some fun and laughter to lighten the mood.

I also simply enjoy learning about my students' backgrounds and cultures. I have learned a lot from my students; in fact, tutoring in English has brought me many new friends! I look forward to forming new friendships through Wyzant.

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.

Bible Studies

I majored in Religion with an emphasis on Christianity. I have led Bible studies and read the Bible for my own study as well. I am currently a member of a church where we learn how to read and apply the Bible to our daily lives.

ESL/ESOL

I have a MA--Intercultural Studies/TESOL. I am a Volunteer tutor--People's Resource Center, Wheaton, IL. I am also a ESOL teacher--People's Resource Center, Wheaton, IL. I am a tutor for international students--Wheaton Academy, West Chicago, IL. I am a freelance proofreader--Baker Publishing Group, Ada, MI.

Vocabulary

I just completed a master's program in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). As part of my education, I taught in an adult TESOL classroom and tutored adult English learners one-on-one. I received much affirmation from the students I worked with, as well as much satisfaction in the experience of observing their progress.
