About Colten

Hello,

My name is Colten, I am 27, live in Indianapolis, and I have been helping individuals with their writing skills and also help those who are new to the English language. Whether you at the beginner, intermediate, or advanced levels, I can help you improve your skill and allow you to get where you need to be.

In the past three years, I have volunteered at Indy Reads, tutoring a local Indianapolis woman and helping her improve her literacy skills. Also, I worked at Berlitz and taught English to international businessmen. Finally and most recently, I taught ESL to students in Costa Rica for six months.

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 have taught Bible lessons at College Park Church, including for an adult class and a sixth grade class. While I am still learning, I also have an extensive knowledge of the Bible, and can help people connect information within Scripture. For 23 years, I have read the Bible regularly and enjoy discussing Scripture with others.

English

I have a bachelor of arts degree in English from Purdue University. I have studied various types of literature. I also have a dynamic writing style.

ESL/ESOL

I currently teach ENL for the Washington Township School's Adult Education program. I teach morning and night classes and several of my students have made significant gains. I also taught ESL in Costa Rica and in volunteer positions in Indianapolis.

Grammar

I have a bachelor of arts degree in English. I checked grammar daily at McGraw-Hill. I currently check grammar at my ENL position. I have knowledge of grammar rules and update myself regularly.

Proofreading

I was a test evaluator at McGraw-Hill. I developed tests and proofread extensively. I proofread the work of my coworkers as well.

Vocabulary

I teach vocabulary at my current position. I help students use context clues to discover unknown vocabulary. I have taught vocabulary lessons for over four years.

Writing

I taught an introduction to writing course at Ivy Tech for a year. I write in my free time and have submitted a few articles for local organizations. People have enjoyed reading my free-form articles as well.
