In fact, I am dual certified, having earned certification in both World Languages and in English Language Arts.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Classics

I teach mythology and ancient history as part of my Latin course; I also teach world literature in the 11th grade English course, including ancient works.

Study Skills

I have taught study skills as part of most of the courses I teach -- primarily in foreign language but also as a separate "study skills" unit in 9th grade English.
