Approved subjects are in bold.
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 a Master's Degree in Education and have taught many students in this area. I am an experienced teacher who knows how to get the best out of my students and look forward to helping in ACT Reading.
I have tutored many students in U.S. History. It a fascinating area, and reading it leads to interesting conversation/discussion between myself and the student.
I am also a very strong writer, and can teach research and writing techniques.
I was a computer teacher in a grade school. I am able to teach most Microsoft and Apple programs.
In the past year, I tutored many students in elementary grades in English and Math. I can teach younger students anything. Most importantly, I have patience with them. All of my students improved at least 10 percentage points in their tests with my 1-On-1 tutoring.
To me, knowing Math is extremely important, and you cannot do any advanced Math if you do not have the basics down. And, I have been tutoring elementary Math students now for at least three years.
In one of my teaching positions, one of the areas I taught was geography to sixth grade students as part of their Social Studies program. This included intense study of the United States, South America, Europe and Africa, and included but was limited to learning capitols, rivers, lakes, etc., including spelling.
Grammar is something I enjoy teaching and know can help any student in this subject.
Literature is one of my favorite things to teach, and I have done it now for more than 15 years. I will read the same material that you will read and thus should be able to help you in anything from analyzing to answering questions, as well as writing papers about the works.
Over the past four years, I have tutored many junior high students in math. I have seen most of them greatly improve their understanding of the mathematics work they do with me.
My first job was as a professional writer. I wrote, edited, and designed the newspaper pages for my department.
I believe that my editing/writing/proofreading skills are excellent, and I know I can help any student improve in this area.
Reading is such an important thing, and I have learned in my teaching how to help struggling readers. Any student that needs help in reading will improve if I am her/his tutor.
I have been a teacher for more than 15 years. I know study skills. Over the past several years, I have worked with tutoring companies as well as teaching positions. In looking at my resume, my credentials to teach study skills should be clear.
I was a professional, published writer for eight years before I went into education. There is no doubt that I can be successful in improving almost any student's writing skills.
