College of William and Mary (Art History Chinese)
I am AmeriCorps Member currently serving at the Literacy Council of Northern Virginia. I dedicate my time to lesson planning, creating student needs assessments and teaching. I typically work with beginning literacy students, but have also tutored and taught classes centered around the TOEFL and GED basic reading comprehension skills. Additionally, I work at ACPS in the adult education program also teaching beginning literacy classes.
In college I served with a student-run ESL program tutoring 2-3 students at a time. Given my academic background I am very comfortable working with students of any origins but particularly Chinese. I am proficient in Chinese which can help in explaining certain concepts. In college I also worked in the children's room, where I watched children (ages 4-10) and assisted with their homework while their parents attended tutoring sessions.
I am currently in the process of obtaining my TESOL certification through NVCC and have taken numerous professional development courses for ESL through the VALRC (Virginia Adult Learning Resource Center). My future goals are to join the Peace Corps and teach ELL abroad.

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.
