Elementary (K-6th)

I taught Elementary School for three years in Massachusetts. I took creative writing courses in college and have taught basic writing courses and vocabulary to Elementary level students. Most importantly, I have Home Schooled three Russian students in required Elementary level subjects. I passed Elementary level subject tests that required knowledge and teaching experience in Language Arts,Reading, English Grammar,Spelling,Literature, Social Studies as well as early Math and Science. All of these subjects were also taught when I home schooled the Russian students.

Social Studies

Social Studies to me, largely covers political science, history, economics, religious studies and geography. I majored in history in college and that included courses in political science, and economics. I also took a course in religious history. I taught geography to freshman high school students. Most importantly, I home schooled three Russian students at an elementary and Jr. high school level. This teaching covered all required subjects and included time spent in covering Social Studies.

Study Skills

My work with students also emphasized study skills.These involved how to organize and take in new information along with concentration techniques. Study skills for me also had my students using proper time motivation and time management capabilities. I also instructed them on how to properly condense information and the use of key words to stimulate correct answers. I also emphasized the importance of comfort level on tests by first answering those questions where they were sure of the answers and to not waste time on questions that involved more thinking. In this way they would not find themselves running out of test time.

Writing

I taught Elementary school English that included grammar, spelling, reading and writing. I also taught High School Creative Writing. I am a published author and I have tutored several clients on reading and writing.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

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.
