About Paulette

I have lived and traveled internationally a great deal. I also speak a second language (French) and am studying a third (Arabic). I am very sensitive to the needs and challenges of the adult English language student. I am also TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language)-certified. I have a lot of experience with adult ESL students from many countries and at different levels with their English. I make sure my lessons for the adult learner are based on what they want, what they need, and their interests. I use many different materials, not just one "course" book. I also make sure we work on all four skill areas: listening, speaking, reading and writing. Yes, there is also grammar -- but grammar can be fun!

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.

ESL/ESOL

I am an experienced, patient tutor and TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language)-certified. I work with adults (only) at any English level, using a variety of methods and materials to focus on the student's needs and interests. I understand the challenges of learning a new language, because I speak French and am studying Arabic -- and I think language lessons should be fun!

Writing

I am a native English speaker and former broadcast journalist. My profession has been marketing and communications, and thus most of what I have done has been writing! An experienced and certified English as a Foreign Language instructor, I can help you with your writing needs -- how to better express yourself, how to organize your thoughts, vocabulary, correct use of grammar and punctuation.
