Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

IELTS

I completed an TESL training course at the University of Arizona in 2012. Since then I have tutored international students in the preparation for the TOEFL exam, which is similar to the IELTS. I will be able to help Wyzant clients prepare for the IELTS by helping them improve their speaking, writing, reading, and listening comprehension of English.

Study Skills

I received my K - 8 teaching credential from San Jose State University in 1989. I taught elementary school for 3 years before having children, and since then I have substitute taught and tutored. I have worked with special needs children as well as typical students. I have experience in helping students get organized and enjoy learning, and I feel confident that I will be able to help Wyzant clients with study skills.
