I am a senior at Duke University majoring in biology. I am also a student in Duke's Elementary Teaching Preparation Program and in the Fall of 2015 will be teaching elementary school with Teach for America. Through the education program at Duke I am enrolled in the Hill Center's Reading Achievement Program which teaches reading intervention strategies for struggling readers. Additionally, I have tutored and worked as a teaching assistant extensively in Durham Public Schools for the past four years with students grades PreK through 8th in all subject areas. As a biology major at Duke I have completed coursework in collegiate level math and science courses including biology, chemistry and physics and as a private tutor have worked many hours with high school students in math and science. I am a firm believer that learning should be fun and I enjoy more than ever passing that joy and love for learning on to my students.

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.
