About Devin

Former Soldier and Indiana University graduate. I am a certified English tutor and I also speak French and German. I spent a number of years living and working abroad and I have experience with a wide variety of Language and Cultural backgrounds. I have lived in Germany, Italy, England, Korea, Japan, Taiwan and Panama to name a few. In addition, I have visited many other countries over the years.

I have a BA in Communications from Indiana University. I received my certification (CELTA) to teach ESL through the International House in London, England where I also spent some time teaching.

I have an easygoing personality and a strong familiarity with many cultures. This helps me to have a deeper understanding of the specific problems a student may encounter with their English that is unique to their native language.

In addition to ESL, TESOL, and English background, I was in the military for 8 years and can help potential new recruits prepare for the ASVAB and military service. I am also able to help people prepare for other tests like GED and SAT. In addition to the subject matter, I like to prepare people mentally for taking a test. This involves helping people determine the best way to approach a specific test to achieve the best results possible.

I am enthusiastic, knowledgeable, patient, and culturally sensitive, and I would be a great choice to assist with your ESL/English or your test preparation needs.

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.

ASVAB

I am a Desert Storm era veteran who served 8 years of honorable service both in the USA and abroad. I also served in several specialty positions such as Training NCO, NBC NCO, Equal Opportunity Rep and earned a Master Fitness patch. My scores on the ASVAB were very solid (AFQT was 95) and I have also taken the Defense Language Aptitude Battery (DLAB). I was also a PLDC and BNCOC graduate during my active service. I am able to help potential new soldiers prepare for both the ASVAB for entry into the military as well as other tests they may have and during their term of enlistment. I am also able to give inside tips and sound advice on how to make the most of your military service.

I am able to speak French and German. Though I usually teach ESL however, I am able to provide a sound foundation with English Grammar and usage as well as vocabulary. I am able to teach or refresh native speakers on some of the fundamentals of English that we all learned but may have forgotten. I teach with patience and understanding and will assess your skills and develop a plan that is unique to your needs.

ASVAB Tutoring

I used the services of Devin for a few months to pass the ASVAB for enlistment in the Army. I always had trouble in school and he helped me a great deal in focusing. He used techniques to help me remember information. I loved working with him and am proud to say that I am officially sworn into the Army and awaiting boot camp. Thank you, Devin. I could not have done it without you.
