English as a second language
Foreign language instruction asks a lot of students. Reading comprehension, writing, listening, and conversational skills often progress at different rates because each requires a different skill or ability. But these skills build on one another, too. With one-on-one attention from a certified tutor, your student can master the listening and conversational skills that will bolster their success in writing and reading – and vice versa.
If foreign language instruction in the classroom is too abstract or focused on meaningless drills, it’s easy for students to become bored and disengaged. At TutorUp, we hire tutors who know how to design lessons for specific learning styles and who can easily shift instructional methods to better engage your child. Work with a tutor who can personalize lessons to your student’s interests and help them develop fluency in a foreign language even faster.
“This is my 7th year in public education. I taught HS Science for 4 years in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools. I enjoy everything about teaching, but most of all – I enjoy building strong relationships with students, seeing the proverbial “light bulb” come on when a student learns something new, and seeing the incredible impact that education can make in a child’s life. There are thousands of careers out there, I get to spend every day around thousands of teenagers with bright dreams and futures. I can’t imagine doing anything else.”
“I am in my 31st year as an educator. I have a Master’s Degree in Literacy Education and was awarded the Milken Educator Award in 2004 for the State of Maine (mff.org). My experience includes teaching grades 1-6 and a reading course at the Graduate Level. Literacy is my passion.”
“I have had the pleasure of teaching high school English for eight years. After earning my Master’s degree, I began my teaching career at a suburban school teaching senior English. After a couple of years, I moved to teaching junior English and ACT prep, and three years ago I was given the opportunity to teach AP Literature and Composition. Although teaching is my second career, it is truly my passion.”
“I am originally from a small town called Kingstree, South Carolina. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology and a Master’s Degree in Education. I am currently on my 4th year of teaching. I am certified to teach all science courses. Primarily I teach Earth and Environmental Science, but I also teach Physical Science, and Biology during our credit recovery program at school.”
