I'm a prolific freelance writer for numerous magazines and newspapers and currently am an editor with a daily newspaper and monthly magazine.

I also tutored individual students from middle-school through college level in reading (including advanced reading), writing, grammar and ACT Prep for more than five years at a Sylvan Learning Center.

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.

Business

Tutoring would cover basic business principles, market forces, supply/demand, investment, privately held and public companies, borrowing, theories behind long- and short-term risks, diversification.
