About JoAnn T. Coleman
My credentials include a Bachelor of Science degree in Education from Auburn University and additional coursework in teaching English as a Second Language from the University of California. I hold a lifetime teaching credential from California.
I believe equally important to educational qualifications and experience are some qualities that are not measurable. The best tutor is compassionate, patient, caring, and understanding. The client must feel comfortable and confident so that he or she can succeed. Throughout the years, I have helped many people achieve their goals, and I would love to have the opportunity to do the same for you.
Teaching is my passion. I have taught throughout the United States and in Europe. In the beginning of my career, I taught elementary school. While living in Germany, I spent four years teaching Adult Basic Education courses to United States military personnel. Upon returning to the United States, I taught Adult Basic Education courses, GED Preparation, and English as a Second Language. I have taught English as a Second Language in public schools, private schools, community colleges, a college, and a university. My teaching experience includes all skills of English, including grammar, speaking, listening, pronunciation, phonics,
vocabulary, reading, and writing.
