About Wendy

I have been tutoring ESL/ESOL students for many years, beginning with adult friends at church and working for a local NCLB tutoring company, tutoring K-9 students in English, grammar, reading, writing and math skills. I currently teach K-9 ESL and adult ESOL students. The important skills are met every meeting, including Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing, as well as grammar, vocabulary and culture. I help students develop the confidence to learn and use their English skills in a variety of learning environments and everyday life skills.

I really enjoy working with students from other cultural backgrounds, and working on vocabulary and life skills. I'm patient and supportive in working with lower-level students of all ages and abilities. Developing positive relationships is a great way for students to gain confidence in learning a second/other language. I also learn a lot from my students... it's fun for me (not a job!).

I graduated from OSU in 1992, and UC in 2009 with a TESOL endorsement (Teaching English for Speakers of Other Languages). However, I have been tutoring adult ESOL students since 1996, working and teaching adults at the Literacy Council for 5 years (and tutoring there prior to that for 4 years!). I have worked as a teacher in many local districts over the years, as well as held other part time jobs along the way (including tutoring!). My students always comment that they love their ESOL teacher, and learn so much from my classes. They are comfortable asking questions and for my making them feel comfortable and not ashamed to learn/use new vocabulary. I've been working with grade school ESL students over the years at various schools, but especially since 2006.

I care about my students and want to see them succeed. I'm committed to continuing my own professional development, so that I may learn updated information and meet my students in the best ways I can. I prepare (a variety of) items based on student needs and goals. I carry many physical items to class with me... you can never have too many things in preparation! I'm also willing to work on-line at various times, so that you may feel comfortable in your own home or other environment, as busy lives flourish around us.
