Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: From teaching and homeschooling different subjects to training dogs as “canine coach” to tutoring kids and adults in a variety of academic subjects including reading and writing G1-8, English, Japanese and Spanish. I enjoy teaching all of these things so much! I have a BA degree in International Relations and MA degree in International Journalism from Baylor University. I also have 10 years experience teaching ESL in Japan, Spain, Thailand and the USA. I love teaching ESL to international students of all ages so that they can reach a level of confidence in speaking English well. I happily travel in and around the North Dallas area in order to teach students in a personal setting. If you want to improve your conversational English, I can help you with speaking, pronunciation, accent reduction, reading and writing in English and we can quickly customize your ESL private lessons to meet your individual goals!! I also teach reading and writing in English to elementary and middle school students. I enjoy teaching Beginner Japanese and Spanish to students of All ages. And my love for dogs and the outdoors results in a love for training my canine friends from puppyhood to adulthood. I have trained dogs all of my life. I also enjoy training and exercising with new (human) friends for a healthy lifestyle. I am always interested in eating nutritiously and staying physically fit. I can help you with losing weight and motivation in exercise. I would be happy to discuss any of my educational services that you think might help you and we can formulate a plan of action. If you decide that I am the right fit for your project, we can quickly move forward! As we reopen Texas during this Covid 19 period, we can still exercise and meet outdoors using social distance in our local parks. Let’s set up a meet and greet now and get started on your New Adventure of Investing in YOU for the rest of 2021! Please contact me anytime!

Dog Training

Renee Gayton was great to work with. I adopted a rescue dog. She gave me great tips on how to deal with his anxiety issues. She worked with both of us on basic commands. Frankie is doing great. If I need Renee, all I have to do is call. She is very personable, kind with pets and very reasonable. I highly recommend her!

TT&T took care of my dog, Pete, like he was their own when I was out of town. He was fed, watered and let out in a timely manner and given love when he was sad that his family left him home. Thank you so much!

Renee is a great tutor, I started wanting to learn conversational Japanese and very quickly realized how awesome my sensei is. Very knowledgeable, and because she actually lived and worked in Japan, she was able to share her experience with me making each lesson something I looked forward to. Because of work, I couldn’t always keep our scheduled lesson. Renee worked with me on my schedule and encouraged me to keep studying. It has really been great experience.
