Multi-Subject Tutor

Words are power. For the ESL learner as well as for the native English speaker, expanding the vocabulary is an important part of any English lesson. Every lesson includes certain new words; and depending on the study section it will be the main focus.

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]

Exceptional Elementary, And Middle School, Educator Extraordinaire!

I believe strongly in constantly expanding one's vocabulary as it subtly shows your education. A vocabulary is the "meat-and-potatoes" for communication and obtaining knowledge. Having an extensive vocabulary is a common denominator in being able to comprehend a certain language as well as write and speak that specific language, such as English, for example. Also, for those preparing for their SAT exam or ACT exam, one of the sections is writing and having a good vocabulary will help a student in diction, grammar and usage. Reading helps increase a student's vocabulary, too. [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. I have been teaching at all levels of high school, community college, as well as after-school programs for [more]
