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.

ACT English

If you need a great tutor for ACT test preparation in English, get in touch with me. I can help you.

Algebra 1

Although I did not study much math in college, I did do very well with math in high school. I have found that I have had success with students that are starting algebra and I can tutor any high school math but pre-calculus and calculus.

American History

If you need a tutor US history, particularly US military history, from any period, I am your man. I specialize in The Civil War, WW1 and WW2 with respect to US history but there are very few areas which which I am not familiar.

English

As an English minor in college, I have both a personal and academic background with respect to English. My mother is a writer and professional editor, and she certainly has been an important influence. If you need help with a paper or project in English, no matter what the topic, I am your guy.

ESL/ESOL

Being fluent in two languages and a novice in 3 more, I am quite familiar with the processes of learning a new language. I am a licensed Spanish teacher for middle and high school students, and I am one semester away from completing my MEd in Spanish, so I am well versed in modern educational theories and practices with respect to foreign language learning. Lastly, I have lived in 3 different countries on 4 different continents, and I know what it is like to be a fish out of water. I can help you with your ESL needs.

European History

Much akin to my interest in US history, I am passionate about European History. I tend to know more about the wars and political/religious influences on Europe over the years, but I am fairly familiar with most areas of European history. If you need help with anything at all in European History please, give me a call!!!

Geography

I am always surprised by the lack of geographical knowledge that students possess these days, and was not surprised to learn that many Americans cannot locate New York City on a map. I don't have this problem, however, and if you need a geography tutor, I am your man.

Geometry

If you need a good tutor for geometry and most other math, I am the tutor that you want. I promise that you will not regret it.

Grammar

As an English tutor and English minor in college I have learned that most students who struggle with grammar speak only one language at home. I myself did not fully learn and understand English grammar until I had mastered grammar in Spanish. This is true despite the fact that I did not struggle greatly with my use of grammar in spoken or written English. If you need to improve your grammar, give me shout!!

Italian

If you need a tutor for beginner to intermediate Italian, I am your man. As well as being a Spanish teacher, I am moderately fluent in Italian and do well tutoring beginners.

Literature

If you want the dirt on all the great literature, or just need help understanding, from writing papers to in depth summarizing, I am the tutor who can help you.

SAT Math

If you need help preparing for standardized tests like the SAT Math, SAT Reading or SAT Writing, I am the tutor for you. I have helped many students prepare for their SATs and I know that I can help you improve your score.

SAT Reading

If you need help preparing for standardized tests like the SAT Math, SAT Reading or SAT Writing, I am the tutor for you. I have helped many students prepare for their SATs and I know that I can help you improve your score.

SAT Writing

If you need help preparing for standardized tests like the SAT Math, SAT Reading or SAT Writing, I am the tutor for you. I have helped many students prepare for their SATs and I know that I can help you improve your score.

Spanish

As a licensed, high-school, Spanish teacher, I know the difficulties that most English-speaking learners have as well as the tricks that make learning certain aspects of the language less difficult. If you need a tutor in Spanish, I can definitely help you, but also if you need translation, simultaneous interpretation and more or less anything you might need in Spanish.

SSAT

If you need help preparing for standardized tests like the SSAT then I am the tutor for you. I have helped many students prepare for their SSATs and I took the SSAT myself. I know that I can help you improve your score.

Vocabulary

In both English and Spanish, I can help you improve your vocabulary. If you need to improve your vocabulary in either of these languages, get in touch with me!!!

World History

Along with US and European history, if you need a tutor to help you with anything in world history, I am your man. I am passionate about history, and whether it is a paper you need to write, information and clarification or just piece of mind about your work, I am ready to attend to your needs in history.
