Dear Prospective Students and Parents,
Hello! Please allow me this opportunity to introduce myself and offer the assistance of my exceptional teaching skills for your educational endeavors. Using our combined efforts, I can assure success taking those tests, writing essays, learning effective study habits, or simply improving your English language speaking skills. First of all, I am a licensed, experienced English and Social Studies teacher, Highly Qualified for grades 5 - 12, in the state of Oregon. As a classroom teacher of 13 years, I am aware of the standards and demands of our public school system and can guide you in meeting those demands. Writing is my forte; I have not only taught students to write wonderful, qualifying papers for their state tests, but have led many workshops for other teachers across curriculums on the writing process. I have also completed several courses in technical writing and research and can be a terrific asset if this is where your needs lie. Starting this fall, I will be completing my masters program in ESOL and will therefore be in study mode right along with you!
Speaking of ESL, during my ten years teaching in Oregon, I taught ESL along with my core subjects of English and Social Studies. For the past three years, I have been working overseas with students whose first language is not English, teaching both classroom and private lessons. My first year was spent in Istanbul, Turkey, mainly focusing on Business English; my second year I taught private language skills, college writing, and TOEFL test prep at a University in China, and this year I am teaching High School English at a top private school in Indonesia. At this time,I have several graduate credits under my belt in my ESL program, and have taken copious ESL professional development courses in these last 13 years of teaching. In any of the social sciences, my working knowledge of subject matter is far-reaching and I am qualified to to teach most of the humanities. I am what they refer to as a professional student and my love of learning will show (and rub off on you) when we meet to study.
I will be back in the US in June and would like to develop a clientele over the summer and into the fall. I can be flexible on meeting arrangements; either I can provide the space and you come to me, or I can come to you. Travel fees will depend on the distance. Please consider me among the most enthusiastic of teachers and let me help you accomplish your educational goals.

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 currently hold a valid Oregon teaching license for English grades 5-12, a social studies endorsement for grades 5-12, a middle school multiple subjects, and am currently working on my master's in curriculum and instruction with a concentration in ESOL. This has provided me with many effective learning strategies to share with my students that can be used in all courses of study.
I have taught ESL in the US and overseas for 13 years and am currently working on my Master's degree. I have several ESL clients in Portland and some online in China as well.
I have worked overseas for three years teaching university and high school students training for this test. I have some great curriculums and am well versed as to what this test entails.
I have a strong classical literature and technical writing background.
