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.

ACT Reading

My Praxis Series reading score of 175 is passing for those wishing to teach in states like MS, TN and AR.

ESL/ESOL

My educational background is foreign languages and immersion is the key to becoming fluent. Everyone learns at their own pace with the knowledge that reading, writing, listening and speaking are essential. The teacher's job is to make the learning fun.

Public Speaking

With college course work in public speaking, seven years experience as a minister, and two years experience as a school teacher, I am willing to teach this subject to college students or business professionals.

Reading

My Praxis Series PPST reading score is 175. I earned a Career Readiness Certificate awarded to me in March 2010 by the Governor. This certificate contains a Reading for Information section for which I scored a 6 out of a possible 7 points.

Writing

My PPST Praxis Series writing score was a 174. This is a passing score for Arkansas, Mississippi, Tennessee, and many other states. This is a qualifying score to teach in these states.
