About Gary

Hello, my name is Gary and I tutor English As A Second Language as well as any aspect of Video Production.

I have experience tutoring ESL and I will make sure that I cater the sessions according to your needs. I spend time with you identifying exactly what it is you need to work on/improve and then develop and implement an aggressive plan to make that happen in the most efficient manner possible. I enjoy the English language and while I will make it challenging for you while at the same time not overwhelming. I have a current client who has shown incredible progress from when we first started. I will evaluate and make sure that we are making progress as we go along.

My approach to tutoring in this area is very simple: I identify your wants and needs and cater to that.

Aside from being a writer myself, which requires good English skills I have had since grade school, I am specifically experienced in tutoring ESL. My current client is showing amazing progress and we evaluate it frequently. His confidence level has skyrocketed and to me, that is what it is all about. We cover everything from sentence structure, prepositions, prepositional phrases, proper use of articles, and everything in between. But we do it in a coherent and organized manner, and not everything thrown at you at once. You will never feel overwhelmed when I am tutoring you. Instead, my philosophy is to build confidence slowly, keeping in mind that patience plays a key role. We will not make you proficient overnight. But we will build your confidence each time we meet.

When I sit with you, no matter what it is, you can expect patience, guidance, and rest assured you are in the hands of an experienced professional.

Thank you,
Gary

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 have tutored ESL for two years. I have developed many lesson plans and implemented them for many students with many different needs.

Video Production

I have over 15 years experience in video/film production including directing, editing, and cinematography. I just directed and edited a feature film that was distributed throughout the world by Bridgestone Multi-Media Group and another film in development which will be released through Pure Flix. I have also taught video production for the last 5 years in higher education.
