About Christine
I started tutoring student-athletes when I was in college. After I graduated with my BS in microbiology with minors in chemistry and Spanish, I was a tutor at a state college working with high school and college students. I have also been privately tutoring students of all ages and levels.

I enjoy the learning process and the interaction between instructor and student, working together to solve problems and figure out concepts that were not clear before. I've always wanted to be a teacher and I hope to be a middle or high school science teacher in the future. I'm currently a grad student fi
nishing my Master's in biomedical science and a substitute teacher.

I have earned good scores in history and English, but I feel more comfortable tutoring in algebra, chemistry, biology, statistics, and Spanish.

As with all services, please give accurate, timely feedback to your tutor. We are tutors, not teachers, and if you are satisfied or dissatisfied with our work, please tell us! We all want to help our students and we cannot do that effectively if the student does not speak up about what they need.

If you enjoy what you're learning and you feel like you're making good progress with your tutor, say it!

If you feel like your tutor is not helping or is not a good personality fit, say it!

Thank you.

Christine was very instrumental in my B in statistic. I could have gotten an A had I been smart enough to engage her services at the beginning of the semester. She was very patient and knowledgeable and wouldn't let me give up on myself.

About Tom
English Literature, BA

Teaching non-English speaking students the basic AND advanced fundamentals of English. The seven parts of speech are nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, conjunctions, and interjections.

I work at the elementary, secondary and post-secondary levels as an adult education instructor providing English instruction to classes or individual students.

As a ESL teacher, developing a curriculum that takes an overall approach to English study that focus on a specific aspect of language use, such as life skills, literacy, or vocational and workplace
English. Both approaches involve teaching my students basic English skills, such as listening, reading, writing and speaking.

Classroom work consist of pronunciation techniques, quizzes, textbooks, videos and computer lessons. I often combine basic studies with real-life interactions involving language use in different situations, such as shopping, schooling, job hunting or working with English-speaking coworkers.

Awareness of the students' culture and I recognize differences that may affect a student's ability to acclimate to a English-speaking environment.

STUDENTS LESSON DETAILS

I prefer to discuss goals with my students and their parents to determine what they are most interested in ACHIEVING. Together create a lesson plan designed for the individual student.

TECHNOLOGY

eLearning is critical in secondary language proficiency - see attached

Excerpt from "50 Ways to Teach Online: Tips for ESL/EFL Teachers" by Dr. Justin Shewell. You can purchase an electronic copy of the book at https://www.amazon.com/Fifty-Ways-Teach-Online-Teachers-ebook/dp/B01M5IS58Q

The Pedagogical Foundations Of EnglishCentral

By David Deubelbeiss

EnglishCentral is a company that takes pride in having experienced teachers on staff and designing a product that will help students learn and acquire English, particularly for international communication.

Too often technology is designed without the control or voice of educators. Technology for technology's sake. We have tried to avoid this error and build an e-learning platform that puts pedagogy and learning first.

Here are the key aspects of English Central's pedagogy:

1. Motivation.

We live in a visual and digital world. Students consume enormous amounts of video content and video has become the new textbook. EnglishCentral harnesses this built in, intrinsic level of motivation - why not learn English while viewing videos you love? EnglishCentral publishes 30 new video lessons per week and its vast library of video lessons and courses offers every student the chance to study what they want and listen to messages they want to hear.

2. Comprehensible Input

Not only do students need to listen to messages they want to hear - these messages must be level appropriate (Krashen, 2001). Each EnglishCentral video lesson or course plus our vocabulary is leveled and can be assigned to students based on their level of English. This provides appropriate practice maximizing language acquisition.

3. Precise, Timely Feedback

EnglishCentral provides instant feedback to students. Students begin to "notice the gap" (Schmidt, 1990) and begin to self-correct as they compare their speech to the original. Tools are provided so students can "dig down" and understand the language and get the answers they need immediately. EnglishCentral works to promote learner autonomy.

4. Lowered Affective Filter

Many students go through a substantial "silent period" (Krashen, 1985). Others need the time and space given through self-study before they are ready to excel in the very socially demanding classroom. EnglishCentral provides a safe, low anxiety environment where learners can proceed at their own pace and practice speaking in a non-threatening place. Teachers are often amazed how the quiet students in their class "bloom" on EnglishCentral.

5. An Oral Language Focus

The 21st century workplace and global nature of communication demands that students have strong speaking skills. The importance of written communication is receding. EnglishCentral's proprietary speech recognition system IntelliSpeech™ trains students to produce, clear, intelligible speech for effective communication across cultures and borders.

6. Blended Learning

The future of education lies in blended learning (Arne Duncan, 2014). EnglishCentral partners with schools and teachers offering a unique blended learning model and platform. Courses and video lessons can perfectly compliment what students learn in class, providing students with extra practice matching the class curriculum. Our free LMS lets teachers extend the curriculum and track student achievement.

7. Structured Learning

Our simple Watch | Learn | Speak methodology provides low cognitive overload and an easy to follow learning pathway. Courses and video lessons are leveled and vocabulary is presented with spaced-time repetition. EnglishCentral monitors every word or expression students study and provides a simple interface where students can use the feedback to improve their pronunciation and build their vocabulary.

8. Gaming

Students are highly engaged by the gaming dynamics of EnglishCentral. Students compete for XPs (Experience Points) and ranking through their study. However, we don't go overboard and aim to keep the focus on the learning, not the gaming.

9. Ambiguity Tolerance

Language is a vast and unpredictable space. Successful language learners are risk takers. Critical to being a risk taker is having a strong ability to not be stressed out by what you don't understand (Brown, 2007). EnglishCentral provides authentic content that challenges students to focus on the general meaning and gist and strengthen their level of ambiguity tolerance.

David Deubelbeiss is a professor, educational consultant and teacher trainer currently at the Schulich School of Education, Nipissing University, North Bay, Canada. He is a leader in promoting the use of technology in language teaching and the use of social media in education. He is the Director of Education at EnglishCentral. Find him online at his professional development community for teachers, EFL Classroom 2.0 or through his LinkedIn profile. He espouses the simple teaching philosophy of “When one teaches, two learn.”

Bill took me through a systematic series of lessons that inspired my confidence in my speaking abilities. I wanted someone who was not just talented, but could also teach others how to be talented (hence I chose this teacher b/c of his teaching credentials). I can really feel my voice resonate now, and I can articulate words a lot more clearly than before. The lessons are also very affordable and I hope to continue lessons with him throughout the year.

Bill is a fantastic teacher! He is extremely knowledgeable and experienced, and will be sure to give feedback where needed, always in a constructive and considerate manner. He is willing to work toward any personal goals related to his teachings, and is highly flexible in the scheduling of lessons.

I started his lessons to learn about voice acting, but I've found that even my everyday voice and speech quality has improved tremendously, largely from his direction. If you are looking to increase the confidence and power of your voice for any reason, I highly recommend Bill as an excellent teacher.
