English Instructor Looking to Teach All Ages

I have taught and tutored a variety of students using reading-based vocabulary. Many of my students are English Language Learners or English as Second Language students, so I start with the basics of age-appropriate vocabulary: what the word is, how to pronounce the word, how to define the word, how to use the word in a sentence, and words similar to and opposite of that word. Vocabulary words are not simply memorized and then forgotten; I encourage my students to build a wide foundation in English, and then use and re-use the words we've already studied. [more]

Academic and formal writing, paper and statement of purpose revision

Writing is hard. Formal writing can be even harder. Maybe you have to write a paper for school. Maybe you want someone to look at your thesis or statement of purpose. Maybe you just want to improve your writing. The best way to improve is to practice with someone who's been there. Together, we can identify your weaknesses, hone your instincts, and learn the craft of formal writing - a skill that will serve you throughout your life and career. I have a variety of formal writing experiences. ... [more]

Patient and experienced tutor here to help students Excel!!

I have helped many students in kindergarten, elementary, middle, and high school to improve their vocabulary. Reading can greatly expand vocabulary. Writing down new words, looking up definitions, and actually using these words regularly will ultimately enhance a student's vocabulary. Hello, My name is Chino. I have been tutoring for over 6 years and served as a teacher's aide for 4 years at Edgemont Elementary School. I began tutoring when I was a freshmen in college. I have now graduated and have continued to tutor. While tutoring throughout the years, I have worked with different levels of [more]
