About Rosalyn

As a retired teacher with grown children, I have experience with students at many grade levels and abilities. I appreciate that everyone has interests that can be connected to subject matter, to make it more relevant and interesting. Using accommodations for these interests or abilities will make a student more successful and motivated to learn. For example, I have been known to use my student's interests in art, sports, science, or history to liven up or illustrate a concept. Let's make connections!

I'm proud to have continuing trusting friendships with former students and their parents,from years ago. After years of working with students from other countries, helping them to develop not only English conversational skills, I have enabled them to learn and apply content area vocabulary, through literature and hands-on activities.

Learning how things relate and connect to each other, and understanding how we are alike, helps us to appreciate and learn from our differences. I have learned as much from my students as they have from me, as we work together as a TEAM!

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

For the last 11 years, I've taught English as a Second Language. Whether you already speak it and just want to improve academically, or are just learning, I can help!

ESL/ESOL

I have taught ESL students from Kindergarten to adult, in classroom, small group, and individual settings.

Grammar

After years of teaching ESL students in particular, I know that grammar and syntax are key elements for good writing and communication.

Reading

I've taught ESL, and all aspects of language arts, and know how to adapt instruction to my students' needs.

Social Studies

In addition to a personal interest in the social sciences, I have taught this subject at the elementary level. I have also passed the the PRAXIS test for Middle Years Social Studies. My M.Ed is in Multicultural Education, as well.

Great First Meeting

I felt like Rosalyn had a structured way of assessing my daughter's reading / writing level, as well as a structured way to proceed forward. She also has the kind of personality that, I think, will help to mitigate the anxiety a young student might feel when trying to be function in a new language.
