I am a person who enjoys learning and teaching. I was a stay at home dad for many years; so I spent a lot of time teaching my own children. I believe I would be a great help to your children in (Elementary) math, reading, grammar, writing, spelling, vocabulary, geography and athletics.
I also have a pretty firm knowledge of American History, especially the Civil War Period. I also have an athletic background and know a lot about baseball, football and running as well. I believe that a well rounded and confident individual learns best-something that I aspire to myself.
I am qualified to tutor as I obtained my certification for Elementary Education from Lesley College in Cambridge, MA. I also spent several years as a substitute teacher.
Thank you so much for considering me and I look forward to tutoring your child in the near future!

Andrew, from our experience, has been great. Our son enjoys his lessons and Andrew works to keep him engaged with many innovative approaches. We have combined some drawing with his math, since our son suffers more from boredom in regular class. Andrew in my mind has been spot on with his approach and high energy level. Our son really enjoys a tutor that can speak his language!
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 was previously certified in Elementary Ed. I also substitute taught for many years and am married to a veteran teacher (25 years). I have two daughters in 6th grade and understand younger children quite well. I especially excel in Math and History.
I have always been strong at math. I was an 'A' student all through high school in math. I love math and find it extremely useful to know every day!
I understand the basics of good reading habits. Both of my children are excellent readers-they started very young-as we read to them at an early age. I can help your child learn to read!
I am qualified to tutor in SAT reading due to my extensive understanding of the English language. I am someone who was tested by my father as a child in writing and reading. I am a very proficient reader and know I can help students to succeed on the SAT. I have also tutored successfully in Math (for WyzAnt) and have my degree in Education from Leslie University (1995). Thank you for your consideration!
I am qualified to tutor in SAT writing due to my extensive understanding of the English language. I am someone who was tested by my father as a child in writing and reading. I am a very proficient writer. I have written many editorials and currently write a weekly blog and have been for over a year. I have also tutored successfully in Math (for WyzAnt) and have my degree in Education from Leslie University (1995). Thank you for your consideration!
I was in the top 20% of my high school class. I was an 'A' student in college and could be very helpful to any student who wanted to learn good study skills! I can help anyone who is struggling in this area.
I am a life long tennis player and have also taught before successfully. I am currently teaching my daughter to play. I understand the game and athletics in general, very well. I could help any player who is new to the sport with such areas as how to serve, backhand, forehand, scoring, strategy and more!
I have run for most of my life. I also ran track for eight seasons in High School (1/4, 1/2, and mile) and often won. From the basics of stretching to proper nutrition, from sleeping habits to the actual running, I have an excellent understanding of what works for runners!
I have a background in graphics arts. I did this for almost 20 years. I have also designed my own website for my company. This website has been successful in gathering clients and displaying what it is my business does. I feel I could help others with designing their own sites.
