About Harriet

I have been an educator all my adult life, both internationally and in the United States. I began my teaching career with a Bachelor's degree in elementary education, initially teaching English, Math, Social Studies and Science to elementary school students. With further study and a Higher Education Diploma, I continued teaching at college level. I also have an internationally recognized TESOL certification.

Since coming to live in Greenville 17 years ago, I've taught ESL to international adults and children in the Greenville area. I have recently worked with 2 teenage students, one of whom is special needs, teaching them English language skills and also two adult Asian students. I'm used to working with groups or one on one.

For students who already speak read and write some English I can help you prepare for your citizenship interview. Eight years ago I became a US citizen myself and I understand well the requirements of this test.

With many years of teaching experience behind me, I'm extremely patient and understand how challenging learning a new language can be for both children and adults. I also understand first - hand, the challenges international students face as they adapt to living in a new country and a different culture. I know too, that in the right learning environment and with a patient supportive teacher, all students can develop confidence and improve their skills. I'm here to help you be the best that you can be.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a bachelor's degree in education. I taught English, math, social studies and science in South Africa, grades 4 - 8, from 1972 until 1981. From 1983 until 1986 I studied early childhood development at UNISA (University of South Africa) and taught preschool children. I especially enjoy teaching English and math to elementary school children.

ESL/ESOL

I currently work for a literacy agency where I have been instrumental in helping develop an ESL curriculum for the international adult students we serve. I also teach ESL classes to these students.
During 2002/2003 I worked on a committee of The Adult Education Branch of the Greenville School District to develop a training program for ESL tutors. I helped present this training across the state of South Carolina.
