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.

Bible Studies

I have taught many Bible studies in different churches over a period of more than 20 years. I have also taken formal classes in a wide range of Biblical topics from college professors, and have an in-depth knowledge of the Old and New Testaments. I enjoy teaching both topical studies and books of the Old and New Testaments. I have read the entire Bible cover-to-cover in a number of different translations, and I continuously take advanced classes to improve my own knowledge of the Scriptures.

Elementary (K-6th)

I taught 5th - 6th grade English, science, and math at Ricardo Christian School in Ricardo, Texas, for 2 years. I taught 5th grade history at Hillcrest School in Stillwater, Oklahoma, for 1 year.

Web Design

Hi, I have 20 years of experience in web design. I have taught advanced courses in web design and data management at the University of Illinois in Urbana, IL, and at the Parkland Business Development Center in Champaign, IL. As a consultant, I have provided web design expertise for the Department of Defense, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Human Kinetics, Busey Bank, and a number of departments at the University of Illinois. I enjoy teaching and look forward to helping you with your web design questions.
