I have the qualifications you seek in a teacher, for I have led many children from the confines of literary bewilderment into the pulsating clarity of light. I am well acquainted with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), as a credentialed California teacher I am familiar with methodology and pedagogical skill set targeting to meet required objectives.

Being well versed in English literature and composition allowed me to overhaul vast swathes of curriculum while at Chungdahm Learning; particularly at the advanced levels. Most courses were modeled after boarding schools reading lists, thus I became adroit at distilling the key thematic concepts from a variety of stories and novels into crystalized and digestible bits of knowledge for all my students.

My familiarity of subject matter is not confined to literature, I am well versed in rhetoric and history. I have also explored heaps of philosophers and I have become to philosophize as well, for what are but a verb?

Sincerely,

James F.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Public Speaking

This is in regard for teaching public speaking and debate. I have extensive experience in both and have taught debate format classes for many years, as well as developing curriculum and activities for beginner and advanced classes. I am well versed in both parliamentary style and Frederick Douglas.

Study Skills

I have helped students with study skills for a better part of a decade and understand the time management issues that children have with subject area content. I am currently working on my single subject endorsement in the state of California and feel that I am extensively qualified in this arena of tutoring.
