About Roland

I am a full-time Language Arts/ESL teacher in a state sponsored school, with eight years of experience. This means that I work with some of the most disenfranchised, at-risk students. My most important goal is to help my students fulfill their goals. I am also certified to teach Social Studies and Business courses.

Being a current teacher means I can provide the most up-to-date teaching methods available. In addition, I have access to some of the most successful teachers and their knowledge to help enhance my students' experience.

As a life-long learner, I strongly believe that education is the true equalizer. As a child, my family was very poor. Therefore, I did not go to college until later in life. Growing up, my main source of education and entertainment was reading used books. Reading became my passion and my ticket to success in life. I discovered that through reading, I could go anywhere I wanted to go, and dream of being anything I wanted to be.

Consequently, with hard work and dedication, most of my dreams came true. Since people of all nations have become part of the global economy, and English is the language of business, I feel that improving one's English language skills furthers the chance of personal economic success. Let me help you attain your dreams.

One of the things that helps me succeed with my ESL students is respect for their culture. I take great care to emphasize the importance of maintaining a healthy balance between learning a new language while embracing and sharing a student's cultural heritage. Another aspect of my teaching is that I believe in teaching across the curriculum. This means using subjects like Social Studies and Business to supplement language learning. This method can add a realistic and practical component to language instruction.

If you are serious about improving your English skills or learning English as a new language, please take advantage of my experience. As I stated before, one of the things we will cover first are your goals and expectations. Those goals will then become my goals, and my primary guide to helping you make the most of your learning experience.

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.

Business

I spent thirty years working in sales and marketing for the insurance industry. During that time, I earned my CLU and ChFC designations. I earned a BSB/Marketing degree from the University of Phoenix. I have taught Business and Marketing courses at the high school level on and off for eight years.

Reading

I love to read. In fact one of my teaching responsibilities where I teach is a reading program for emerging learners. I use a variety of methods, including teaching how to skim material and using context clues.

Writing

For essay writing, I work with a simple 5 to seven sentence construction procedure. From there, the student can become proficient and branch out into more complex assignments. In addition, I work with real life situations to broaden vocabulary and promote better comprehension.
