When choosing a tutor, nothing substitutes for a well-experienced, diversified, and extremely knowledgeable teacher. Having taught for forty years in many areas, I have met and worked with students who differed in educational levels, learning styles, multiple intelligences, learning disabilities, and motivation.

My fields include American, World, South Asian, European history; ESOL at all levels; Writing and editorial skills; Citizenship; Career and Job Training; Computer Literacy. I am highly skilled in all areas. I also work in the field of Distance Learning (online learning).

Students are individuals and need to be taught/tutored as such. Prefacing any tutor/teaching situation with an assessment of the specific needs, abilities, difficulties, learning styles, and motivation of the student, I then strategize how best to meet student desires and learning needs. I am particularly skilled at matching student needs with my tutoring/teaching methods.

Honestly, I am a real catch!

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.
