To get a grip on vocabulary I work with my students by looking at synonyms, antonyms, sentence completions, analogies; flash cards can be made into a game. What I bring to my students: I have been a coach for many years and worked with students of all ages and skill levels. I tutor English and German, teach ESL, and coach students in their te [more]

Anne S., French

I believe that I can help a student with English vocabulary because I speak with fairly sophisticated words in my regular speech. I read a lot as well, and I constantly learn new words through this medium. I believe that I can help a student improve his vocabulary by encouraging him in using synonyms, homonyms, and antonyms. I am a French native and a credentialed French teacher. I was born and raised in France and attended the Sorbonne University in Paris before moving to the Bay Area.

Effective English, Writing & Logic Skills

For over 20 years, I have been teaching, training & tutoring in many different forms. Working in small groups and one-on-one, I love interacting with students, asking them questions & getting them to ask questions of their own.

I also employ a modified EDGE method (Explain-Demonstrate-Guide-Enable), particularly with gr... [more]
