Introduction: NOTE: While the pandemic is a threat, I am only tutoring over the Internet using Zoom for pods (Zoom) and individuals (Skype). I have been working as a tutor for the last 12 years. I began tutoring when I was a resident of Mexico, living first in the town of San Miguel de Allende where I tutored French and then in Guadalajara where I prepared student clients for the TOEFL exam. Since returning to the United States in 1212, I have been tutoring English with clients reached through WyzAnt, Hey Tutor, Thumbtack and Bright Bird Tutoring. I am qualified by WyzAnt to tutor all aspects of English (reading, writing, grammar, spelling, and vocabulary), ESL, and to prepare students for the English parts of the ACT, GED, and SAT and to succeed on the TOEFL. I have also worked with clients having problems with all aspects of English Arts in elementary, middle, and high school. I have worked with intermediate and advanced English students needing to improve their English, helping especially where critical reading and essay writing is an issue. I have conducted English sessions at SAP, San Ramon, California. I have also taught beginning English to a class of junior foremen at the Urban Company in San Rafael. My latest qualification is a certificate as a dyslexia tutor. I have been a reading/writing tutor for the Solano County Literacy Program. I have also worked as a walk-in tutor at both of the Vallejo public libraries. I have passed the California Basic Educational Skills Test (CBEST). Besides U.S. citizens and residents, I have worked with ESL clients of all ages from China, Japan, Vietnam, India, Indonesia, South Korea, Lithuania, France, Russia, the Ukraine, South Sudan, Mexico, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Bolivia, Brazil, Venezuela, and Colombia. using Skype or zoom. I hope to hear from you!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Since the length of sessions and number of days a week that the student studies with me varies, I charge by the hour. My hourly rate includes all travel expenses.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    The first meeting will be an evaluation of the client's current skill level and a "let's get started" session. I typically use published guides as the focus of the session. I am equally at home tutoring in person or online.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I continue my writing career. I have recently completed the translation of a libretto from French to English, and ended work on a project for Guidance Software Corporation, rewriting an out-of-date user manual.
