Experienced, encouraging ESL/ABE tutor in Friendswood loves helping people increase their speaking, reading, and writing skills to enhance their lives.

Methodology

My teaching method is eclectic. I draw from a variety of resources that I tailor to the student's needs. I help esl students in reading, writing and speaking English, with particular emphasis on their most needed skills. I also help people with accent reduction.

Background

I've been tutoring a wide variety of people for over 25 years, helping and encouraging them to achieve their goals. I worked for NASA as an editor and for a newspaper as a writer. My post-graduate training in instructional design helps me adapt my tutoring to the individual’s needs and style of learning, since everyone learns differently.

Please indicate part of town in which you live and whether you are willing to do distance tutoring if you live on the other side of Houston—I’m on south side in Friendswood.
