About Esther

I thoroughly enjoy language studies! I have 3 years experience teaching English-as-a-second-language (ESL) to Slovaks and Hungarians in the Slovak Republic. While living in Komárno, Slovakia, I was teaching 1) in a high school, 2) in an English academy, and 3) as a private tutor to adults and children.

I am also open to tutoring in English grammar/writing for any age of child or teen. I feel confident to tutor elementary students in all subjects except mathematics.

My confidence for tutoring comes from my varied teaching experiences which also include:
1) homeschooling my own two children from the beginning--they are currently 16 and 11 years old.
2) 12 years working as a horsemanship and riding instructor.
3) 1 year teaching 2nd grade, and junior high Spanish I, at a private Christian school.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

My confidence in tutoring the subjects at an elementary level are due to my varied experience in teaching:
1) homeschooling both my children from kindergarten to their current grades: 11th grade and 6th grade
2) teaching 2nd grade classes (A Beka curriculum) for one school year in a private Christian school)
3) teaching English(ESL)while living in the Slovak Republic at a high school (2 years), in a language academy (1 year), and as a private tutor to adults (3 years).

General Music

I read music, and I am proficient on the baroque recorder. I have also given private recorder lessons.
I played several years with an amateur Celtic/folk music group called the Heart of Grace.
I was a member of the Monterey Bay Symphony choir for two seasons in the early 1990's, and performed a few times in the Hartnell college (of Salinas, Ca) choir as a soloist.
I compose songs along with my husband who is both an amateur guitarist and singer; and our two children are musicians, as well, studying the piano, guitar and ukulele.
