About Rita

I make books. Everything from cover to cover, including the covers. You can learn English the traditional way and by making books with me. The ratio of traditional to art work is different for each student.

I have an MA in English and a certificate in Book Arts. My background includes forest lookout, rural letter carrier, teaching ESL to adults and tutoring children. Learning English is not just about grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. You will learn all of those. You will also learn the most important thing: to understand meaning.

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

Reading, writing and speaking English have been my lifelong pursuits. From grammar to reading literature and writing poetry, we can concentrate on the areas of English you need.
