If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

In essence, I teach in a firm yet flexible manner, and I feel that this balanced approach will make it easier for the student(s) to learn the material. I also feel that my experience as a sports coach, as well as my background in Mass Communications & Neuro Linguistic Programming is an added benefit to the student. These are extra tools that I use that are not generally found in ordinary schools or learning environments. I can write a lot of beautiful things about myself, but I'd rather prove them. Thanks.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I instructed 4-6th grade at a Summer Program at Sunset Prep School. This included the main subjects of Reading and Math. Covered all other subjects as well.

Furthermore, I have experience in Middle and High School settings, and feel that I am qualified for this subject.

GED

I am experienced in SAT and GED Preparation.

Logic

I am an experienced tutor for over 15 years, and I have a philosophy background. I studied philosophy at FIU, and continue to research the subject personally. Therefore, I feel I am well qualified to teach logic.

Religion

I attended religion/philosophy courses at FIU, and passed them with As. Furthermore, I informally continued to study religion and philosophy, and I would like the chance to take this test.


SAT Reading

I am trained and experienced in SAT test preparation.

Social Studies

I have a Statement of Eligibility in Social Studies and History. I have taught Social Studies and Public and Private School settings.

Therefore, I feel that I am very well qualified to take the exam.

Study Skills

During my tutoring/teaching of English, Math, Science, etc, I emphasize to all of my students the importance of class preparation, study skills, and organization.

Instructing students on study skills is more than simply saying,"Just study...". There are organizational strategies involved that are not emphasized in the classroom, and that are vital for all students, whether they are honor roll or struggling students.

Writing

I have a bachelor's degree in journalism and mass communications.
