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 did my graduate work in French and Linguistics at The American University and completed a certification program in Teaching English as a Second Language. At the university level, I structured and delivered courses in Grammar, Pronunciation, and Communication. My curriculum was strengthened with activities based on skills acquisition and student production ability. I evaluated student accomplishments using multiple assessment methods and assisted in curriculum development and evaluation of educational materials. Since I was able to encourage student enthusiasm for the learning process, my classes were considered to be favorites. As a writing tutor in the Academic Support Center, I assisted ESL students in a variety of assignments from formal essays to business letters and helped with the writing process from brainstorming ideas to the final draft.

I organized and structured an ESL program for migrant workers and their families,including the development of course materials for varying skill and literacy levels.


Finally, I have years of experience working with community agencies as an ESL tutor.
