Bridgewater State Uninversity (biology)
I have taught ESOL to adult learners for five years ranging from beginner to advanced levels. I have TEFL certification. In 2006, I trained to become a state certified literacy tutor. Since then, I have tutored both adults and children. I have been able to help many adult learners earn their GED and improve their English language skills. In 2010, I began substitute teaching at a local Adult Ed program and for the last five years I have been a teacher to adults in ESOL and GED prep classes. I have respect and admiration for adult learners who work hard to improve their lives. The dedication and focus of these students is inspirational to me.
I worked as a biological researcher ten years after earning my BS in Biology from Bridgewater State College. I am very comfortable assisting students in understanding math and science concepts.
I think I have had success in tutoring and teaching because I am patient and empathetic. I have a love of learning, travel and other cultures.

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 have several years experience working with native and non English speakers working towards passing the GED Writing test. I have taught these students to write 5 paragraph essays on given prompts and successfully correct grammar exercises. I have worked with a number of HS students to edit and polish their college essays.
