TEFL Certified, Wyant top 10% tutor.

I am located in rural Virginia. Please note that our lessons will be online.

I enjoy working with students one on one or in small groups. It is such an honor to meet so many students from around the world meeting new students and learn their history and teach them to tell their story.

I have a B.A. in Dramatic Art and a certificate in American Sign Language.

I have tutored low literacy adults and enjoy the discovery when someone 'gets it'. I also teach English as an Other Language to adults. Studies do not come easy for me, so I understand that sometimes people need extra help or a different viewpoint to understand something new. I find that many times students fall behind because they find the material dull. I believe in breaking complex problems into components to make the subject understandable.

My goal is to present material in a way that the student will understand the basics and be able to move to the next level with confidence.

Public Speaking

I have a BA in Dramatic Art and studied speaking skills, linguistics and phonetics in pursuit of a career in the theater. I have performed in numerous community theater and small professional theater productions of the years. I know (and can explain) techniques for improving speech quality and calming nerves when having to face a group.

Corporate Training

ESL/ESOL,

ESL/ESOL

I teach ESOL by total immersion. I tailor each session to the needs and vocabulary of the student. I don't spend a lot of time explaining grammar, but use grammar and vocabulary to help students reach their goal. My training in theater arts has given me the tools to teach students American pronunciation as part of their vocabulary lessons. I have had the privilege to teaching ESOL to financial managers, journalists, pharmacists, accountants and other professionals. I always remember that my students are intelligent adults who have come to learn another skill. Most importantly, I believe that the learning experience for adults should not be a chore but something they look forward to each time that we meet.
Grammar,

Grammar

I love English grammar. Although the fashion is to promote fluency without focusing on how or why the language works. I teach students the basic eight parts of speech, then show students how each piece fits together with the others. I teach students how to make sure that subject/verb match and the importance of antecedents when using pronouns. My students learn that grammar is the foundation for their expressions, not simply rules that have no place in their communication. I teach students that grammar is a puzzle and my method is to show a student how to put the puzzle together to make many beautiful pictures.

Reading

I am a former volunteer with the Washington Literacy Council where I tutored low-literacy adults and trained other tutors on using the 'Wilson' method of reading. The Wilson method provides a structured way to using sounds to read and spell and also encourages students to write. The Wilson method is adaptable to all age levels and is great tool for those who wish to begin a life of reading pleasure.

Knowledgeable, Attentive & Great Tutor!

Professor Moire is a very versed, smart, and authentic tutor. Her class is amazing! It is a fun and interesting class to be enjoyed, without loosing the focus on the subject. Professor Moire genuinely motivates me, which encourages me to move forward in my study. When we work together on my assignments, for instance, she goes through with me diligently. If my job is really good she compliments me. But, when I have to do a better job, she corrects me with firmness and patience, which I appreciate. I am an immigrant student who is taking credit class at College. I highly recommend professor Moire for those who needs help with English classes, either for ESL or credit classes. Furthermore, if you are seeking for assistance with your citizenship preparation or in your professional education to work on your English she is the one!

Grammar Review

Her teaching style is simple to follow. She takes notes and gives them back, which is great for reviewing. I would definitely recommend Morie to anyone looking for a teacher with a sense of humor and who knows her stuff, and I will use her again.

Great Tutor - positive and attentive

I have been taking lessons with Moire for two months already. She is a very positive person and an attentive teacher. We are covering different topics in every lesson. One day we are working on pronunciation and vocabulary; the next day, she reviews the text that I wrote, corrects grammar, or explains how I can enhance the sentence in some cases. I like this balance. She is a good listener and doesn't hesitate to interrupt you and correct when needed. I like it a lot. I highly recommend hiring her as a tutor.

Amazing Tutor ever!

Moire is an astonishing tutor with a great personality. I just like the way she starts our classes with current events.I also began to notice improvement in my writing just after a few days of Moire tutoring me.

Vinette, 9 lessons with Moire

Great starting!

Moire knows how to help me and understand what I’m looking for. I can wait for the next class and see what more I can learn.

Juan, 20 lessons with Moire

Very patient and knowledgeable tutor.

Today is the first time to meet Moire. She is very nice and kind. Great lesson - great at determining exactly what was needed. I can keep up when she talks and she can explain in a way I understand.
