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.

ACT Reading

As a certified ESL/TEFL instructor, it is imperative that I be proficient in teaching reading. I structure my tutoring to the appropriate level of the student. Working for the Literacy Program has equipped me with many skills and activities to guarantee success and enjoyment in reading.

English

Sharing my knowledge of English is very important to me. It is necessary to communicate as English is the universal language.

Vocabulary

I have been professionally trained to teach vocabulary and other crucial skills that apply to mastering the English language. I encourage my students to exceed their goals. I am a big believer in "catching my students doing something right," rather than "catching them doing something wrong." I try to always accent the positive as opposed to the negative.

Writing

I am ESL/TEFL certified and have tutored and taught all levels of students in writing. I am currently a volunteer at the Literacy Volunteer Program in Las Cruces, New Mexico and have had the opportunity to assist my students from many countries to improve their goals in writing. I love the challange it provides, and the reward is to see them improve.
