"Patient, experienced ESL tutor specializing in professional adults."
I have taught English for 14 years in both the public and private school systems. As part of the English curriculum, I taught study skills -- reading comprehension, skimming, summarizing, analyzing, note taking, listening, organizing, test taking, etc. Sometimes these skills were incorporated in a general classroom instruction; sometimes they were taught separately as specific learning skills, especially at the private school which focused on one-on-one instruction. Some of my students at the private school faced challenges such as ADD/ADHD, Asperger's, social anxiety, drug addiction histori ... More
She was very flexible when it came to the hours and days that I wanted her to come by. She also gave me her phone number, so it was very easy to contact and she was always on time. She worked with how I learned and taught me how to do my work in a way where it came easiest to me. She is very outgoing and kind and seems to know what shes talking about.

"Certified English/Theater teacher with 35 years of experience."
I graduated with a degree in English, and am a certified English/Theater teacher in the state of Washington. I've made my living for the past 35 years in theater, as a playwright, director, and actor. I have been in this profession so long for one reason; collaboration. I think a teacher-student relationship must be a collaboration, not dependent on the power or authority of the teacher. I don't think you can teach successfully with an iron-clad set of rules for success.
I have taught many ... ... More
