ExperienceEnglish/ESL tutor: I spent a decade teaching English as a Foreign Language in 3 universities in China. I can tutor in all aspects of English: spoken (pronunciation, fluency, intonation, vocabulary), listening, reading, writing (including writing term papers and essays). I am a compassionate and caring teacher, but also extremely professional. I will provide you with lessons that are fun and relaxing, but will assist you in achieving your language goals.
Proofreading/editing: I have assisted graduate students and professionals at two universities (Auburn University, Alabama & Southwest Petroleum University in Sichuan Province, China) with proofreading and editing their theses and articles that were successfully submitted for publication in professional journals. You are responsible for the content, but I can assist you in organizing your thoughts, and with grammar and writing style. I absolutely LOVE doing this!
Study Skills Coach: for several years, I taught a Study Skills class at Davis College for incoming Freshman that concentrated on time management, planning and organizing study space and time, identifying one's own study strengths and weaknesses and finding a study method that works, enhancing concentration and memory, and preparing for and taking tests. I also implemented and managed a peer tutoring program at Davis, where I trained academically successful students in tutoring struggling students in the above study skills. This significantly reduced the Freshmen attrition rate, helped a number of students move out of academic probation into a successful academic experience, and also helped the sports program by keeping players from being benched due to low GPA or failed classes. If you are a high school or college student who wants to improve your GPA, I can help you! I LOVE seeing students blossom and flourish!

I have reduced rates for multiple hours of tutoring during the week, for students who refer other students, and for group tutoring.
HobbiesI have traveled and taught and lived around the world -- especially Asia -- and have a great respect and love for students from all walks of life.
Two of my three children (now grown and in their careers) were high academic achievers; on the other end of the spectrum is our youngest child -- who has Down Syndrome and seizure disorder: I'm experienced in working with students with high IQ's and with students with mild learning disabilities and with my own child who has severe cognitive delay. I love nothing more than seeing my students surpass expectations, and I will do everything in my power to assist them in this quest.
