About Leigh

My background is in ESL/ESOL tutoring and teaching and I would love to get back into it. Recently I have taught GED subject areas with a major focus on reading, writing, and math. I have really enjoyed my work with the students at a literacy agency in both North Philadelphia and Center City. This past year I have taught Adult Basic Education and GED prep classes, which included teaching basic computer literacy skills. I will bring in ideas and materials when I tutor, but I also encourage students to bring in their own ideas, too. I am accustomed to working in a very student-centered learning environment.

I completed my Master’s degree in TESOL at the Graduate School of Education at UPenn in August 2007. I graduated from Bryn Mawr College in May 2001 with a degree in English. I love working with English but would be happy to teach math and computer basics as well.

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

My background is in ESL/ESOL tutoring and teaching and I would love to get back into it. I will bring in ideas and materials when I tutor, but I also encourage students to bring in their own ideas, too. I am accustomed to working in a very student-centered learning environment.
My experience: I have taught an informal English class at the International House at UPenn. This was a class of about 10 students from all different countries, and we worked on improving conversational skills;
I have tutored an advanced ESL student at the Center for Literacy;
I have tutored Korean children and their parents in their homes.

General Computer

My most recent job experience involved teaching Adult Basic Education and computer literacy basics. In my past classes, I helped adult students navigate computer programs such as Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint, and all about using the internet. Some of my past students had never used a computer before, so we started at the very beginning. Some of the students were more advanced, so we would start with what they knew and built up their computer skills from there. I also helped many students look for jobs online and showed them how to use the CareerLink online system.
I really enjoy helping people with the computer. They not only feel like they've made a huge accomplishment, but they have learned very valuable tools, too.
