Kent State University (Telecommunications)
I am a good tutor and have completed twelve successful years of TESOL teaching overseas and two years in the Peace Corps, combined with tutoring. I believe that I can help students achieve the academic success they desire, providing they complete their work on time and keep me up to date on what they don't understand.
I understand that achieving success in academics is important, as well as keeping one's skills up to date in this competitive world. That's why I have increased my teaching skills every couple years, by getting certificates that will help not only my teaching style, but will enhance my tutoring. I have achieved over a 3.5 in my TESOL studies. I also have experience in grant writing from the University of Fairbanks, Alaska and teaching advanced American methods of reading and writing, certified through the Peace Corps. In addition, I have taken a writing course in journalism at CSU and also American Literature at Texas A&M and received an "A." In addition, I am familiar with broadcast writing and reporting and was a co-anchor for TV2 at Kent State University for two years. So, I believe I have the skills to help students improve at academics, specifically in English and writing.
I am available to tutor online or in person and my fee is $40. I can teach all levels of English and can tutor students of all ages. I can also tutor for IELTS, TOEFL and Cambridge English tests. I believe my academic skills can make an improvement on each student, yet they must take the initiative to try hard. Success is achievable. The skies the limit!
I have 14 years of ESL experience. I have also taught IELTS English at New World IELTS School during winter camp, in Mainland, China. I have also tutored several young adults in IELTS English and my students have done well on their IELTS exam In addition, I have done extensive proofreading for my students, on their homework writing assignments and have also proofread 2 thesis assignments and proofread a research assignment. My students have done well and improved their writing and reading skills.
Feel free to contact me in June of 2016. I can help all those that are interested in online tutoring and look forward to providing help in English reading, writing and grammar. Just keep in mind, if success is not quickly seen, then keep trying and the results will be in your favor. Wish you luck!

I understand that
Please cancel 36 hours in advance or I will then charge a full fee for the lesson, unless the student can prove the reason for cancellation was a legitimate reason.
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 been teaching English for over 15 years and have also had many years of training in English, grammar, writing and English conversation. In addition, I recently passed my Praxis II test in English and I am also certified to teach English overseas. In addition, I have been tutoring mostly college students and adults after school for about 10 years. Therefore, I feel I am qualified to tutor students and it is my area of interest.
I have had years of experience proofreading English compositions that my English students had given me to grade, when I assigned them an English topic to write about. I have also taught my students how to proofread. In addition, I have had to proofread my news reports before I went on-air, when I was a broadcaster for my campus TV2 station and make a habit of proofreading my assignments, before I turn them in. Therefore, I believe I have developed a skill at proofreading quickly and correctly.
I received a certificate in teaching advanced reading and writing from the Peace Corps. In addition, I passed my English Praxis II, which included English reading and comprehension. I also took World Literature from Texas A and M and received an "A." I enjoy reading and writing and am happy to tutor and help those that need improvement in those areas.
