In ESL, I can help you with writing, reading, grammar, and conversation. I can help with your presentation skills, too. If you have to speak or give a presentation at work, I can help you with that. I have worked one-on-one with professionals who need to improve speaking skills and writing skills. I teach the rules of English grammar in a sequenced way so that the progression from basic to sophisticated English is clear.
I have taught English at the University of Louisville and the University of Tennessee. I have taught in Saudi Arabia and Venezuela. I am now an ESL instructor at Jefferson Community and Technical College. I have a Masters in Education and a BA in American history.

Marc was a very good listener trying to understand my English language difficulties and needs. I think he caught what I was intending even the short time I stayed in the USA. His tips in English learning will be useful for me from now on.
Thank you very much.
I learned so much about your country when we met for lessons! I hope someday we meet again when you are back in the US.
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.

I am now an English as a Second Language instructor at Jefferson Community and Technical College. I have taught at the University of Tennessee, the University of Louisville and schools in Venezuela and Saudi Arabia. I like to teach all aspects of English--writing, grammar, reading, and vocabulary development. I also like to help students with specific areas of language. For example, a student who is interested in a nursing career may need help with the vocabulary and grammar of nursing expressions.
I have also helped students in giving presentations. Students often need assistance in creating a clearly organized presentation, sometimes with a Powerpoint.
I am a member of TESOL, which is the professional organization for ESL instructors.
My Masters in Education (M. Ed.) is from the University of Louisville.
Basic verb tenses necessary for conversation are covered: present, present continuous, past, past continuous, future, and present perfect. English clause structure is covered including independent and dependent clauses, noun clauses and adjective clauses. High-frequency irregular verbs are presented (for example, leave, buy, bring). Use of active and passive voice is emphasized.
Vocabulary review means learning the definitions and uses of academic words in English. These words are found in high school and college textbooks and they are important for educated speakers of English to know. I approach vocabulary through books in the "Inside Reading" series (Oxford).
