As a veteran teacher of 16+ years, I would like to offer my assistance for those seeking extra help in English, paper writing, research and reading. I have worked with all levels of students from elementary to adults; special needs folks to academically talented. I would really love to assist you with those pesky English grammar issues, help you with the ins and outs of Shakespeare, or help your middle school become a life-long reader--did I mention that I also have a library media specialist background? I am very enthusiastic and passionate about books and reading, but teaching is my great love! My family will be relocating to the Wilmington area in July and I am eager to start meeting new students and helping however I can.

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.
