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.

ESL/ESOL

I have a BA degree in Liberal Arts with a major in English. In Oregon, I had certification to teach English in grades 5 through 12. I am currently retired. At Queens College in Belfast, Northern Ireland, I took a certificate to teach ESL in 1990. Following that, I taught adult post-graduate agriculture students in China. I am currently actively working with graduate students, and students from all over the world. I have Chinese, Iraqi and a student from Brazil currently. I can help you meet your goals.

Vocabulary

I have a degree in English and certificate to teach ESL. I regularly teach lessons in vocabulary to graduate students and working adults. I use a large vocabulary , which is probably my best strength. I target lessons to student's interests.

Writing

Held state certification for English grades 5-12. Certified to teach ESL and taught for three years in China. Worked for Americorps for three years in early reading and ESL. I focus on vocabulary and conversation with adults and reading and confidence building with children.
