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.
I have taught KIndergarten in Kenya where I was a class teacher for twenty four year olds. I am patient and kind with children.
Having good English skills is a key to advancement both socially and professionally. This need not be difficult with a systematic and gradual approach to improvement using writing and reading exercises. I believe in making learning English fun so the student is eager to learn more and more.
I studied ESL at Humber College in Canada. When I graduated, I was hired back by the same College to teach composition to ESL students. I enjoy the challenge of getting students to improve their English skills and seeing them gain more confidence.
I have taught grammar for years to both ESL and native American students. I use drills and exercises but also make students see the grammar mistakes in their own writing. Students can be intimidated by grammar, but it can be fun and practice makes perfect.
Literature is one of life's great pleasures, a fact that is often forgotten in this world of tests and exams. Not only can I help you do better on the tests but you will learn to enjoy reading the great books that are part of our cultural heritage.
I have worked as a magazine editor where I proofread many articles to weed out spelling and grammar mistakes. I have aslo taught composition and helped my students learn how to proofread their work more efficiently.
I make all my students read novels and newspapers until it becomes part of their daily lives. I can help you improve your reading skills by teaching skills like pre-reading, skimming for content and understanding the main points of the reading. It is very gratifying when students tell me they never realized that reading can be so much fun.
