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 method of teaching English is considered the natural method or direct method. My English lessons forces the students to speak English to communicate without the usage of their native language. I find this method to focus on conversational skills, and correct pronunciation in gaining the most of learning the English language. In addition to using the natural and direct method, body language is also critical to learning another language, so this will also be strongly used in the way I teach English.

For example we would begin with practicing common words for basic communication until he feels comfortable. I believe it is very important to focus on common words and phrases in any language, so that students have the ability to begin conversing immediately.

My objective is to make my lessons for students fun and to achive their ultimate goal.

Study Skills

I have previously tutored grade levels k-12 in study skills. As a distance learner, I know different methods on teaching good study skills for a student to reach their goal.
