About Beth

I am a mature former high school English and history teacher. In recent years, I have been a higher education administrator for enrollment services. Since I retired, I have held tutoring positions at Joliet Junior College and Moraine Valley Community College in reading, writing, social studies, history and GED prep. I cater to individual needs and am comfortable working with students with disabilities. I am a mature former high school English and history teacher.

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.

ACT English

I have worked with pre-college and college students for over twenty years. I am also a former high school English teacher. I have proven strategies and considerable knowledge and expertise about how to take the ACT and maximize the results. My tutoring strengths are in English, writing and reading. I do not tutor for the math portion of the ACT.

ACT Reading

I have spent over 20 years working with pre-college and college age students.

Public Speaking

I was a high school teacher for 4 years and taught public speaking classes to sophomores. As a higher education administrator for 22 years, it was my job to give presentations to university officers, boards of trustees and prospective students and their families. I successfully campaigned for public office three times, which required significant public speaking. I have moderated countless candidate's forums for the League of Women Voters in the Palos-Orland area. I currently serve on the Orland Park Library Board of Trustees, which also requires public speaking skills. As a tutor at Joliet Junior College and Moraine Valley Community College, I worked with students to improve their speech composition and public speaking skills.

Social Studies

My major in college was Divisional Social Science. This major required the completion of 40 semester hours in three social science areas. Mine were: history, political science and psychology. I taught U.S. History for three summer school sessions. My student teaching experience was at the junior high level in social studies/civics.

Writing

In the past, I have taught writing at Governors State University.
