About Miriam

I am a licensed teacher available for lessons this summer!

I have several years of experience teaching English. Some areas I've covered during tutoring include: writing, reading comprehension, test prep, spelling and vocab development.

As a moderate special education teacher, I have a strong background in working with elementary to high school students who have struggled with academics. I would be happy to discuss a tutoring plan that will address your needs.

I have also worked with children and adults who want to improve their ESL-EFL skills. We can work on daily conversation practice, listening and reading comprehension, pronunciation, grammar, driver's test prep, or other topics of your choosing. I taught ESL for three years, hold a TEFL certificate.

Please email with any questions. I look forward to hearing from you!

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.

ADD/ADHD

I am a licensed special education teacher (State of MA). I have a broad range of experience teaching students with learning differences, behavioral challenges or social-emotional issues, including ADD/ADHD.

Aspergers

As a licensed special education teacher in California and Massachusetts, I have taught students on the Autism spectrum and specifically students with Aspergers. We can work on a variety of issues related to academics or social skills. I'd be happy to talk with you about the specific needs of the student.

English

Some topics I have covered in tutoring sessions in the past:
reading comprehension
literary analysis
essay planning
proofreading and revising essays
poetry
symbolism
character development

ESL/ESOL

I focus on a communicative approach (rather than a grammar approach) to help my students use the language as much as possible. I provide a lot of feedback and I review the corrections at the end of each lesson. In 2012 I have worked with students from France, Japan and Korea. I tutor elementary age children up to adults.

I taught ESL in Colombia for a year. While there, I earned a TEFL certificate.

Phonics

I have used phonics with children and with adults who are learning English as a second language. Some concepts that that we can use in tutoring are: learning the alphabet, phonemic awareness, word families like the CVC words that end in "at" "it" "et". These are a few examples of topics I can incorporate into a fun, engaging lesson for someone learning the sounds of letters in English. I am a licensed teacher. I have several years of experience teaching English.

Spanish

I majored in Spanish in college and have been using it ever since in my travels. I am not a native speaker, but I lived in Spain for a year and in Colombia for a year. We can work on grammar, vocab, conversation, etc.

Special Needs

I hold a Massachusetts teaching license in moderate special education. I currently work as a special education teacher in the Boston area. I'm happy to work with you to create a tutoring plan that works best for your needs.
