All of Helen’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Helen’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Algebra 1

I have taught the content of the Algebra 1 course as a part of GED test preparation. I am familiar with the Los Angeles Unified School District's Algebra 1 course outline and CA state content standards. I enjoy teaching Algebra very much.

Biology

I taught Biology for 7 years in high school. I have just successfully coached a HS senior in AP Biology. She got a score of 5 on the AP Bio exam and the highest final exam score in the school. I am very enthusiastic about Biology.

Elementary (K-6th)

I taught 3rd grade in a private school for 3 years. I am familiar with Los Angeles Unified School Districts course outlines for subjects at elementary grade levels. I've taught reading and basic math for many years.

Elementary Math

I very much enjoy the challenge of teaching Elementary Math. I explain the concepts clearly using different approaches to assist the student in understanding. I have a calming presence which helps to assuage "math anxiety".

Elementary Science

I have taught science for 7 years. I am able to explain the principles of the subject very clearly so they seem easy. I have a calming presence which helps my students overcome any anxiety.

English

I have taught high school English subjects to young adults as well as upper level ESL classes. The GED test preparation classes I give also involve grammar and writing conventions, as well as essay structure and writing. I enjoy teaching English.

ESL/ESOL

I taught ESL and reading to students of ESL in adult school for 14 years. Most of students in my high school teaching and GED preparation have had English as a second language. ESL has been a major part of my teaching.

GED

I have taught GED preparation for 10 years as well as proctoring and grading the official GED practice tests. I am very skilled at teaching the skills and knowledge required to succeed in passing the GED.

Phonics

I taught a reading lab class for 13 years with LAUSD. Phonics is an integral part of the program for lower level readers.

Prealgebra

I have taught pre-algebra extensively as part of the GED preparation program. I am creative in my explanations, and am able to clarify difficult concepts and make them simple. I very much enjoy teaching math to young people.

Proofreading

I have worked with many students on writing. I not only proofread for grammar mistakes, but also help students clarify the structure of their writing. I have great powers of analysis which enable me to dissect and elucidate the logic of a thesis.

Reading

I taught reading to adults for 13 years. Most of my students had English as a second language so phonics was important as was vocabulary development. I also worked with students so they could visualize the meaning of what they read to have a full understanding.

Study Skills

I have directed students in their successful studying for the GED. My most recent student who is studying in a very fast paced technical program had no idea how to study effectively. After one tutorial she feels empowered and is maintaining a 91 average.

Writing

I have taught writing as a part of GED preparation and the school English courses for 10 years. I am an expert at identifying and correcting structural and grammar problems in essays. I teach my students to produce work that is organized and on topic.

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
