About Andrea

I have a Bachelor of Arts in English, with a focus on creative writing. I have also studied music and singing, which has given me clear enunciation and interest in accent coaching. My own accent is generic American, with faint hints of British and Continental. Soon after college I started tutoring college students in English literature and writing, and a few years later when we moved to Europe I worked as a private tutor for a local adults with their business English. That's when I learned about the differences between British and American English, both in grammar and pronunciation, and was able to tutor my students in British English.

Upon repatriation, I got a job as an ESL Tutor in several American public schools, from first grade up into middle school. I worked with special education students as well as foreign-born students, led writing groups, and provided administrative support to the special ed team and a complete English curriculum to one of the international special-ed. students. I have tutored students in English grammar, spelling, pronunciation, literature, writing (creative, business, technical, and more), idioms, various usages, and even etymology.

My own approach to tutoring, based upon my widely varied student clientele, is to keep trying different things until I find an approach that works. The students know what they need help in, so I work together with the student as a team to address these.

I have a deep love for languages, and have studied several. Let me help you develop your own skills and written "voice," and you will likely find that you enjoy language too! My schedule is flexible and I can travel anywhere in or near El Paso. My rate is $30 per hour for now, for in-person lessons. Contact me, and let's talk about how I can help you improve and succeed!

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.

Autism

I have worked with both children and adults who have autism, with widely different levels of functioning ability. I worked at a residential school that specialized in autism and other neurological differences, as well as worked in special ed. in two different school districts with children with autism who were mainstreamed. My own child is on the autism spectrum, and I have a great deal of experience working with him as we homeschooled on and off for several years.

Homeschool

I have a BA degree in English, and several years' experience tutoring in the American public school system as well as at the university level and overseas. I also homeschooled my own child in grades 4, 5, 7, and 8. I am familiar with several different homeschool curricula, as well as the homeschool laws in my home state. I am very knowledgeable and supportive of homeschooling.

Public Speaking

I have taken public speaking courses in school and in university, and during my working career have made speeches and presentations to audiences of between 5 and 75 members. I have also done some classroom presentations at the college level, and have conducted trainings for co-workers and managers in my professional life. I can teach students how to write a speech, how to prepare visuals, and how to present themselves to the best effect when speaking in front of an audience.
