Tutor Personal Information
Ms Claire F.
Tutoring Style and/or Experience
My name is Claire Frances and this is my TutorMatch profile for teaching English as a Second Language; and also basic English, reading, writing and grammar. My teacher training experience includes working at several schools in Thailand to teach English for both private and public middle schools. I love the English language and hope my enthusiasm has a positive effect on my students.My background in education includes a B.A. degree from the University of Madison-Wisconsin in Comparative Literature and Spanish. I studied Portuguese for one year in Brazil where I also tutored ESL. In San Francisco I tutored homeless students after school, taught adult literacy and ESL to Spanish speakers; and instructed for internet and PC users. I have produced several video presentations and a hands-on Internet accessible e-book.My most recent training in Thailand stressed language immersion. I believe language proficiency in class can be reproduced both formally and informally in context; for instance, social settings and conversation practice via the Internet or in-person can function to improve learning skills.My personal interests vary from knitting to reading, and blogging. I am committed to volunteering in communities where I have lived.
