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

I have over 30 years' experience training individuals at all levels. I speak another language, which gives me an insight into how speakers of foreign language may communicate differently from English speakers. I use a hands on approach, focusing on the interests of the learner, where they are likely to have the most enthusiasm around learning.

Public Speaking

I am an Advanced Communicator (Bronze) with Toastmasters International. I have been a leader in my Chapter for 4 years, have delivered at least 30 speeches there, and have won competitions in the area.
I understand the elements which make a good speaker out of a nervous speaker, and how to deliver sensitive yet honest feedback to aid in that learning.
