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! I am a licensed teacher available for lessons this summer!

Fluency and vocabulay expansion. Interesting class covering multiple topics. My 15 years old rated excellent and eager to continue with english classes.
She teaches me on English. She is serious on everything and she is patient on my every question and responds with a correct answer for me. In addition, she helps me to promote my English. She is a really nice teacher not only on her field, also on tutoring.
Miriam has been tutoring our child for nearly 3 years now and she has made a great deal of difference in our child's ability to clearly think through his ideas and get them down on paper. Our child has also improved in spelling and his attention to the grammatical details which can be challenging for students. Miriam works very diligently and always with the purpose of building on the previous lesson to steadily make incremental progress. She is genuinely engaged and cares about our son and the progress that has been made. I would strongly recommend Miriam to anyone that is looking for a dedicated and caring teacher capable of effectively producing outstanding results.
I'm French and I've been here for 8 months. When I arrived I don't speak English, any word, any sentences, It was so difficult. Then I met Miriam with Wyzant. And I guess that for her, at the beginning, it was difficult too to teach me because I didn't speak English, so it has everything to do. Miriam had known how I had to work, she gave me confidence, she is very attentive. It is also available and can teach any topic, it is highly cultivated and taught me a lot about the US' culture. I am very pleased to have Miriam as a teacher. So of course, I recommend Miriam!!
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
