English: I teach correct English pronunciation, (including phonics) conversational speaking, listening, understanding, reading, writing, and grammar. For the very beginners, I teach the alphabet letter names/sounds/consonants blends/, and the correct writing/pronunciation of the vowels and consonants. I use a variety of teaching aids, including books, a magnetic letter board, cards, and tapes. I can help you learn at your level and pace. For those who are advanced and ready to take the ACT or the TOEFL tests, I can help you prepare for those tests. [more]

Let's Learn Using Your Best Learning Styles!

"English"! The word brings to mind many things: a subject in school! A language -- spoken and written -- that millions of people around the world want to learn! And, for some people, the "how-to" of putting together the mechanics of the English language in coherent sentences and well-constructed paragraphs. Still others think of English literature, and the great writers who were born in England. English is my first language, and I would love to help you or your student to improve their use of the English language or their understanding of English literature. I minored in English, and, as a na [more]

PhD Offering Tutoring Services in Reading, Writing, & Literature

Don?t worry, I won?t go into too much detail about my research! I?ll just say that it involved the close reading and analysis of literary, legal and historical texts in the original languag [more]

Versatile Teacher, Passion for Music and English

I'm a recent graduate from the University of Iowa, magna cum laude, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and a Bachelor of Music in Composition. In my time at the School of Music, I came to enjoy the personal and unique one-on-one interactions I had with many of my professors. It was through their expertise and engagement with my own way of learning that I came to enjoy the prospect of tutoring others with the same passion and effort. Even as I was passing through middle school and hi... [more]

I've been tutoring and training for years!

My undergraduate degree is in journalism and mass communication. That degree program focused on English, grammar, writing, and editing, among other things. My master's degree is in adult learning, performance, and development, which focused on teaching methods and how people learn. I have tutored individuals from elementary to college students and have designed training for groups of adults for many years. Each situation is a little different. I believe we should never stop learning. I've loved helping others learn since I tutored in middle school and high school. I continued tutoring in colle [more]
