Reading and Writing Tutor with Orton-Gillingham Capability

I am qualified by WyzAnt to tutor all aspects of American English skills offered: reading, writing, grammar, spelling, proofreading and vocabulary. I have tutored many clients, adults and teenagers especially, in speaking and listening to American English. The ability to spell words correctly is extremely important although, frankly, with tools like spell check in Microsoft Word, the responsibility for spelling correctly is pretty much transferred from the writer to the machine. Still, I pride myself on my command of English and learning new words and how they are correctly spelled and used. [more]

While I love working as a consultant (more on that in a subsequent paragraph), I also really enjoy math and ha... [more]

Writer, Musician, Poet, and Journalist

Dave, born in Toronto, Canada, received his music education at the Royal Conservatory of Music. He began putting his poems to music and this led to his migration to California to seek recognition as a songwriter. He played with several music acts in the Bay Area in the 1970s/1980s and composed scores for the theater. Following the muse of poetry and fiction writing, he went to San Francisco State University and earned Creative Writing (English) degrees (B.A. Summa Cum Laude,?93, M.A. 1995). ... [more]

Not afraid of Virginia Woolf or math formulas!

Learning to spell correctly is a process that gets easier as the student advances in experience and proficiency. Because English spelling is far less regular than, for example, Spanish, students of English need to not only learn spelling rules, but also need to spend time memorizing and practicing vocabulary words. Reviewing and learning 5, 10, or 20 words a week, when combined with reading a few minutes every day, is the most efficient way to master the habit of good spelling. I have worked with students of all ages and levels, from preschool through graduate school. While I have expertise in [more]

English tutor with ESL teaching experience

I'm a 29 year-old master's student in the linguistics department at UC Davis. I went there for my bachelor's degree as well, which was also in linguistics. In addition to my studies, I worked in Spain for a year as a high school English teacher, during which time I also privately tutored several students. I have a passion for language and teaching, and nothing is more rewarding to me than seeing a student finally understand a subject that they have had difficulty with. I have experience tu... [more]

UCB Grad & HS Teacher: HS/College Subjects, Math, Test Prep, etc

To enhance students' spelling abilities I may combine readings, online activities, games, and tried-and-true methods to remember spelling (e.g. mnemonics, color coding, etc). Vocabulary and spelling are related, although doing well in one does not necessarily mean excelling in the other. I graduated from UC Berkeley with a B.A. in Cognitive Science and a concentration in Cognitive Neuroscience. I also have two Minors: Ancient Egyptian and Near Eastern Civilizations and Cal Teach (Math and Science Education). I passed the 3 Math CSETs (California Subject Examinations for Teachers) and I complet [more]
