I have been involved in elementary and early childhood education for over 40 years.

I have a BS in Elementary Education and an MEd in Education with a concentration in Infant/Young Child Mental Health which certified me in early childhood and elementary Special Education.
I am qualified to tutor most subjects (language arts, literacy, reading, phonics, grammar, math, science, social studies) except foreign languages.

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.
I have 60 hours of training in Orton-Gillingham method to tutor students who have a diagnosis of dyslexic.
