I have been tutoring students in the English Language Arts for over a year. I specialize in Reading Comprehension for students in 4th to 8th grade. Most students I've tutored have greatly improved their scores from the pre-test to post-test that the companies I've worked for require. I specialize in reading comprehension. I also excel at students improving their writing skills.

I work with the students closely and my goal is for their improvement in the areas I tutor. I also can tutor American History, how the government works, and social studies. I am willing to work on material the student is studying, including homework; as well as bringing in learning guides. I live in the North Hollywood area, but can tutor on the West Side of Los Angeles as well. Finally, I am friendly and conscientious. If for some reason, I need to cancel a session, I will give the parent plenty of notice.

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.

Social Studies

I am qualified to tutor in Social Studies because I was a Government major in college. I have vast knowledge of American History, Government and Politics, and other cultures.

My approach to tutoring in Social Studies would entail finding out from the parent and student what specific areas they need help with and create a flexible approach in aiding them with their Social Studies knowledge.
