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.

ADD/ADHD

I have taught English for 26+ years, and have had many students with ADD/ADHD. I recognize the symptoms and can adapt my teaching to accommodate them. I give very clear directions and utilize the necessary sequence of events for the lesson at hand. I tailor the lesson to the student, and I frequently change activities and tasks to make sure that the student is following the lesson and stays on task.

English

English grades 7-college. I have done elementary tutoring also. I am certified in Maryland.

PSAT

I have taught high school English classes that have specifically focused on PSAT review. I have also taught 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade. My most recent teaching has been writing courses at the College of Southern Maryland.

Study Skills

I have been a teacher for 27 years. I have taught all grade levels from 6th through college and adults. I have tutored all levels from elementary to an adult Korean woman who wants to improve her English. I taught SAT review courses. I have helped students with their organizational skills and study skills. I give students materials that assist them with studying (graphic organizers, etc.)

Writing
