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.

Algebra 1

I tutored college algebra to many college students while in college myself. Since graduating, I took the GRE recently -- the entrance exam for graduate school -- and scored quite well on the math section. This exam includes algebra I and II topics, but I am only prepared at this time to tutor algebra I.

I ordinarily teach college in Jacksonville but have opted not to teach summer school, so my schedule is quite flexible. If you need some algebra tutoring before the beginning school in the fall, I can certainly help you to be prepared!

GRE

I took the Graduate Record Examination in 1992 and again in 2011. My most recent scores were 700 (out of possible 800, estimated by ETS to be 155 on current scoring system) on the quantitative (math) section and 690 (out of possible 800, estimated by ETS to be 165 on current scoring system) on the verbal part. I am familiar with the changes to the verbal and quantitative sections that were instituted July 1, 2011.

Psychology

I am a clinical psychologist by training, but have spent the last year working as a part-time professor of general psychology at Coastal Community College in Jacksonville, NC. Prior to that, I was a teaching assistant at ECU where I taught psychological statistics. Moreover, I tutored psychology at the college level for several years.
