About Tracey

I am an experienced English tutor to adult and teenage students who are learning English as their next language. There is nothing more rewarding than helping a student learn language through reading, writing and conversation. I really enjoy meeting people from all over the world who want to learn.

I have always chosen careers where I helped others and fed my curiosity about the world around me. Before I was an ESL tutor and teacher's aide, I was an editor and writer in newspaper and television news. I have also been a business trainer and volunteer public speaker. Since childhood, I have pursued music, dancing and choral singing as a means of self-expression.

Communication and information, in all forms, are important in today's world. Literacy should also play a lead role. It often takes a back seat to math, science and technology, but it shouldn't. Our global economy requires workers and leaders who are adaptable and proficient in many diverse areas.

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.

ESL/ESOL

In June 2011, I completed a nine-month certification program at S-TESL, accredited by Seattle University. I completed a TESOL internship at Shoreline Community College in March 2011. I have been volunteering since January 2011 at Shoreline Community College as an ESL teacher's aide and co-teacher. I have been a paid ESL tutor since April 2012. I have experience with all levels of English learning, from beginning (preliterate) to advanced (college prep.)

Public Speaking

I have been a volunteer public speaker since high school, when I became an activist in politics and local government. I have taken public speaking classes in college. As a former broadcast journalist and current teacher-in-training, public speaking is natural to me.

TOEFL

I have been tutoring students on TOEFL for many years. I own two TOEFL books with CD-ROMs. They are published by the makers of the TOEFL. Students who have taken the TOEFL before have told me that they recognize some of the practice questions from the test.
