English Tutor - Grammar, Phonics, Reading/Writing, & ESL (all Ages)
My passion for English as a 2nd Language (ESL) sparked 10 years ago. I worked on ESL reading and phonics with a 4th grade girl falling far behind in her mainstream classroom. The deep gratitude of her mother struck me, and I spent the next 10 years pursuing language teaching from pre-K to high school in many contexts: privately in the home and during school hours, individually and in groups. Specific subjects include English, Phonics, Grammar, Writing, Reading, Rhetoric, and Bible. I've worked with students with autism, ADHD, emotional disorders, and other disabilities. My experience in English-specific instruction spans from teaching 3-year-olds the alphabet to supporting middle school grammar and high school AP Language exam prep. My passion for tutoring today reflects my initial tutoring experience, as I have gone on to obtain my certificate in Teaching English as a Second Language (TESOL) at Cal Baptist University.
