Don L-- English, Literature, SAT prep, Grammar, and Writing Teacher

Every student of English should work on building vocabulary. I have materials that focus on building good vocabulary, especially for the middle school and high school years. Finally, I provide 'common context' to illustrate appropriate usage in a sentence for new words. Since retiring in February 2014 from teaching high school English full-time, I have really enjoyed tutoring all aspects of English instruction. I loved teaching high school, and I am finding tutoring just as enjoyable. I am meeting many new, interesting people, and I am teaching students of all ages now. I am patient, flexi [more]

Face to face, personalized instruction, for ESL and English

As a retired teacher with grown children, I have experience with students at many grade levels and abilities. I appreciate that everyone has interests that can be connected to subject matter, to make it more relevant and interesting. Using accommodations for these interests or abilities will make a student more successful and motivated to learn. For example, I have been known to use my student's interests in art, sports, science, or history to liven up or illustrate a concept. Let's make conn... [more]

Experienced Tutor in Elementary Ed, Special Needs, and More...

Vocabulary is essential to develop reading comprehension skills. One communicates with a parent, teacher, physician, banker, police officer, retailer, etc. There are forms to complete. Vocabulary usage should range from common to advanced words. The key is to learn when, where, how, and with whom to use specific vocabulary. I can help assist you in meeting your need to improve your skills. My passion for teaching comes as a result of having amazing teachers in school and dozens of educators in my family. Hard work, dedication, flexibility, goal-setting and patience can help anyone learn and fu [more]

Seasoned tutor for Spanish, English, ESL (TOEFL), SAT Test Prep Skills

I have a degree in literature and languages from Bennington College, Bennington, VT. I am also a trained language teacher. Over the years, I have devised drills, games, and other activities designed to strengthen a student's vocabulary. Students do not always know what they can accomplish. With an empathetic teacher, they can come to realize that learning is one of life's greatest joys. I know because I was referred to as a "slow learner" in grade school. Flash forward and I hold a Ph.D. in Spanish and Latin American literature from New York University. What changed? Research indicating t [more]
