Hello Student and/or Parent,

If you need a tutor for SAT, GED, Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Praxis, writing, or grammar, I am accepting students.

My most recent Wyz Ant success story is that I have helped a recent college graduate prepare for and pass the PRAXIS I exam.

I successfully complete a 12-hour SAT/ACT teacher training course, that provided SAT and ACT content and techniques needed to help students improve their performance on the either test. In addition, I have been a GED instructor at Prince George's Community College since 2007. I have also tutored Business Math, Accounting, Statistics, and Finance while obtaining my bachelor's degree and substitute taught in a local public school system. Also, I passed the Praxis exam (standardized teacher's exam) in 2007 on the first try, getting 28 out of 30 questions correct on the math part of the test. In addition, I obtained my Masters of Business Administration in 2011.

In summary, I have the training and experience to teach and tutor for multiple exams and subject areas, and in different age groups. In addition, I have developed the ability to assess a student's level of understanding to help determine the best teaching techniques for the tutored subject.

Thanks,
Arvel

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.

Algebra 1

I have been teaching algebra in the Adult Education program at Prince George's Community College since 2007 and previously with the Prince George's County Public School System's adult education as well. I actually answered 28 out of 30 correct on the math part of the national teachers’ exam (PRAXIS). In addition, I have the unique ability to explain math topics in multiple ways just in case the student does not fully understand the way the topics are taught in the textbook.

GED

I have been a GED instructor at Prince George's Community College since 2007 and have taught GED classes previously with the Prince George's County Public School System. I have the unique ability to explain the more challenging areas of the GED subject areas.

Grammar

I have been teaching grammar and reading in the Adult Education program at Prince George's Community College since 2007 and previously with the Prince George's County Public School System's adult education program as well. I have a deep understanding of mechanics, punctuation, and sentence and paragraph structure. I also have the ability to explain complicated grammar topics in a way that most students can remember.

Prealgebra

I have been teaching pre-algebra in the Adult Education program at Prince George's Community College since 2007 and previously with the Prince George's County Public School System's adult education as well. I am able to explain math topics in a way that students can understand.
