My first tutoring experience was with my daughter when she was in middle school. Even though she was a very good student, she had never learned to write a strong essay. To show her the different ways to structure an essay, we reviewed "The Three Little Pigs" and "Cinderella." It was funny to combine children's stories with a serious subject! She caught on right away. I can help students to write essays, paragraphs, business letters, resumes, cover letters and other correspondence. I am a pass...
My focus on teaching English is to coordinate skills in grammar, speaking and writing so that students see how they work together. I also use short texts (poetry, fiction or non-fiction) by writers in the United States and other countries to provide a meaningful framework for the lessons.
