About Arlene

I am a retired teacher who taught 11 years as a high school and middle school English and ESL teacher. I taught five years in an alternative school for academic and socially struggling students. Additionally, I taught for 5 years for an online school for accelerated, home school, and diverse students. I love tutoring students in all ages, and work well with any type of student. In the past I have worked with children between the ages of 7-19, and recently have worked with adult learners between 20- 55!

My favorite aspect of tutoring is the ability to give direct attention and specific instruction in a one on one or small group environment. I love seeing students grow in knowledge and confidence as they master the information. My most cherished moments are when students feel fearless and self-assured because they have completed a difficult or dubious assignment.

My goal at every tutoring session is to actively help students learn by creating a positive environment, and fostering a confident teacher student relationship.

My specialty is English: Writing, Composition, Proofing and Editing Papers, Subject Research, and Writing/Formatting Research Papers. I have a NC Teaching credential for English and ESL. I work with ESL students on writing, comprehension, language acquisition, pronunciation, syntax, and correct English language grammar. I am also highly skilled in working with males who need remediation: struggling with literature, writing, and/or reading comprehension.

I am a FIFA D National level soccer coach. I coached club soccer from 1992-2006, (Gu8-GU17) and a was a high school Varsity coach from 2006-2009. Currently, I coach my son's soccer team, and offer individual, small group, and large group lessons.

I am available for tutoring throughout most weekdays from 8:00 am- 8:00 pm. I am available for one on one instruction, small group instruction, and large group instruction. I can also meet with student(s) in person, or in an online environment via Skype, FaceTime, etc. if you prefer.

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 am a retired high school English teacher. I taught in public schools for 10 years, an alternative/continuation school for 4 years, and online high school for 5 years. I hold a bachelor's degree in English and a Master's degree in Education. I also hold a NC teaching credential for English and ESOL for K-12.

Proofreading

My 14 years experience as a high school English teacher has prepared me for almost any type of proofreading and editing. I taught Senior English, AP English, Honor's Senior English and have proofread well over 1,000 college entrance Essays. Beside teaching and editing college entrance essays, I was a professional reader for Pearson Education, for the Cal State University system.
