About Toni

Hello,
My name is Toni. I have taught a multitude of individuals from various backgrounds. My students enjoy working with me because I am friendly and very patient. I enjoy my students because they are unique.
Some of my credentials include a MA in Education, and BFA in Communication Arts. I have taught students as young as 7 years-old and as old as 95, covering a variety of subjects including ESL, academic writing, psychology, sociology, art and computer skills.
In my post-graduate studies, I wrote an instructional plan which I titled, 'Self-actualizing Portraiture'. I designed this instructional plan for individuals with post-traumatic stress disorder, especially combat veterans who have been traumatized by wartime activity. However, I have taught variations of my plan to other populations.
Public speaking is another subject area in which I have experience. Having spoken at Columbia University and moderated panel discussions in New York City, I would enjoy empowering others to confidently present themselves in their best light. I also host a weekly internet radio program.
I enjoy teaching and learning with the personal philosophy that 'Education represents the intellectual infrastructure of our global society'.
Thank you for your time. I look forward to providing my teaching services.

Sincerely,

Toni

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

Learning English is very unique to most students . This is because most learners of language have specific needs. For this reason, my lessons are always tailored to those needs.
It is my belief that effective communication is imperative to academic, career and personal success. I have found that it is also very important to build the confidence of students pursuant to empowering effective communication skills.
I engage my students in a process in which they are empowered as they learn at an appropriate pace and retain the learning content. My students look forward to their sessions because the lessons are enjoyable and effective. I always integrate the selected learning materials within each lesson with other learning tools to keep their interest piqued.
As a teacher, I maintain my focus on the goal of the student; the student’s goal is also my goal. We work together as a team.

Writing

Writing Skills
Students of academic and creative writing often require skills they can take with them throughout their lives. With this in in mind, my sessions integrate grammar and sentence structure with vocabulary building.
Good writing skills contribute to the confidence needed for effective overall communication. This confidence enables creativity, and helps to establish a foundation for lifelong communication.
Every student is unique. My tutoring sessions are always tailored to the individual needs of the student.
