Accomplished career educator, writer, editor, historian will happily assist students of any age to write, read, learn basic math, science, or language, or for test prep of various kinds (GED, SAT, PSAT, etc.). Will gladly offer structural or editorial suggestions for revision or improvement of written work, but no ghostwriting. I will guide preparation for tests, suggest tools and pathways to academic competence and increased achievement at school. I have employment background in history, law, medicine, and business, and 12+ years of teaching in HS, college and university settings.

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.

CBEST

I have taken and passed the CBest, which tests basic English language skills, and fundamental math. I am certified at higher levels in all the skills it tests, e.g., Reading, Writing, Vocabulary, Grammar, prealgebra, etc., so I am qualified to tutor someone who needs assistance with this test.

Study Skills

I have taught basic academic skills and study skills informally as part of rigorous academic subjects (History, language, etc.) for many years at the high school and college levels. I am qualified to tutor students in study skills by virtue of that experience.
