About Martha

My love for teaching comes from the joy in seeing my ESL/ELL students make such rapid progress as they learn English. I am well qualified, having a MATESOL (Master’s Degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages).

I have experience teaching all ages, from Kindergarten through 12th grade, and adults. I also tutor college students who are preparing for the TOEFL and/or Versant exams. I teach all levels of Writing, Grammar, Spelling, Reading, Vocabulary, Speaking /Pronunciation, and Listening. I also teach all of my students Conversation skills and Accent Reduction, which are so important.

I have lived in 3 foreign countries and know how difficult it is to learn a new language. Not only can I empathize with my students, but know firsthand which methods are effective with adults and children.

My experience also includes helping our 9-and 7-year-old sons through their own four- year linguistic immersion in French public schools in France. In Michigan, I worked as an ESL paraprofessional at an elementary school, tutoring students in all grades, K-5th. Teachers, students and parents alike appreciated my non-threatening demeanor, my patience, understanding, and fun and effective methods of teaching.

I am flexible and will meet you at your home, work, library, coffee shop, or other place.

Let me help you perfect your English!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I worked as an ESL paraprofessional in a K-5 elementary school. I helped classroom teachers by pulling out students to tutor them in English. I also sat in classrooms next to ELLs and explained to them what was being taught. I tutored ELLs in all grades and in most subjects.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught and tutored adults and college students in Writing, Grammar, Spelling, Reading, Vocabulary, Listening, and Speaking/ Pronunciation. I also tutor students preparing for the TOEFL and Versant exams. In every lesson I include Conversation and Accent Reduction skills, as they are so important.

Phonics

I have a MATESOL degree and taught and tutored reading and conversation to university students. Before I got my degree I was an ESL paraprofessional working at a K-5 elementary school. I worked with all grades tutoring reading and phonics.

Spelling
