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.

Biology

My BSci degree is in biology and I have had a passion for the subject since high school -- too many years to count! I have helped my students grasp the main concepts for biology, and can do the same for you. I can adjust my tutoring to your needs and help turn confusion into understanding!

Chemistry

Chemistry is FUN! I am licensed in both Physical Science and Chemistry and have helped students grasp the main principles of the subject and can do the same for you. I can adjust my tutoring to your needs and help turn confusion into understanding!

Elementary Science

Science is FUN! I've always found science to be one of my favorite classes in school. Let me help make it one of yours as well!

Macintosh

I have worked with Macs since they were introduced as Apple II's - even at school that is PC based, my work is done on my MacBook and then I transfer and adjust it on the school PC.

Physical Science

I have taught physical science for 15 plus years and it is one of my favorite subjects! I have helped my students grasp the main concepts of both introductory chemistry and physics, and can do the same for you. I can adjust my tutoring to your needs and help turn confusion into understanding!

Study Skills

Under the guidance of the school Learning Center, I implemented IEP's for a variety of students at Hill Murray School.

I instructed 25 at-risk students in an alternative academic program at Cannon Falls High School, MN. I also tutored a Native American boy in English, Math and other subjects through Division of Indian works in Minneapolis, Mn.
