About Cat

Language has been a fascination for me for decades and I have studied it most of my life. I have a certification to teach ESL and have many years of studying other languages. I lived overseas growing up and know what it's like not to be understood. I homeschooled my children in all subjects, taught a class in ESL for adults and served as an assistant in a camp for kids.

Having spent time in another country, I feel compassion for those adapting to this culture. I love to learn about different ways of living. I often learn as much from my students as they do from me! I am creative so when it comes to solving problems in understanding, I will find a way!

I teach ESL, linguistics, English, elementary French, writing, and proofreading.

Learning is fun and I am a hard worker. I don't give up! With some advance notice (like a few days to a week) I am usually available most days. Please send me a note so we can meet and get started!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

English

I began learning English and French grammar at a young age at a private school in Europe. I have a BA in linguistics and am recently certified in ESL. I homeschooled my two kids and have a reputation as a rather astute grammarian.

ESL/ESOL

I am certified to teach ESL and have a BA in linguistics. I also studied French for many years. I was an assistant at an ESL day camp for children, volunteered for the Literacy Council here in Michigan. I created my own curriculum for adults, but am very flexible and will adjust based on your needs. I have lived overseas and know how difficult it can be to learn a new language in a new culture.

Proofreading

I have studied English grammar since I was 7 and learning French in school. I have a strong grasp of English construction partially through extensive foreign language work as well as years of tutoring others, teaching my kids, plus writing during my free time. I have proofread fellow students' papers for grad school as well.
