ELA Tutor with expertise in literacy, grammar, writing and creativity will teach your child (or you) with fun and artistic approaches to learning!

Methodology

My teaching method is to use creative techniques and activities to engage my students in learning. For younger students I use educational games of my own creation, age appropriate humor, even songs to engage and stimulate memory of the lesson. For older students, I use jokes, metaphors and sometimes even acting techniques to engage them in comprehension, and understanding. For all ages I use different approaches for differing learning types, such as visual, audible, learn by doing, and learn by demonstration. I love the English language and my love comes out in my teaching in every capacity that I teach it whether in elementary or advanced subjects.

Background

My name is Vivian Preston. I am a teacher/tutor with years of experience in ELA education! I use fun and artistic activities in my approach to teaching everything from elementary reading, writing, grammar, and comprehension to advanced high school and college literature. I have three degrees from various colleges. BA in English from Chowan University in NC, a MFA in Acting and Dramaturgy from The New School for Drama in New York City and a MA in English Education (k-12) from NYU in New York City.
I love children and I absolutely love having fun and laughing. I want my tutoring sessions to be not only educational but entertaining. I enjoy creating new lesson plans for the the changing technological world. I use my artistic abilities and background in acting and stand up comedy to keep my students’ focus and enjoyment of what they are learning.

Vivian has been tutoring my brother's two girls, ages 8 and 13 for almost a year. They both have ADHD and are challenges to both their teachers and parents. Vivian's patience and educational background have helped both girls focus on their schoolwork and accomplish tasks quickly and efficiently.
