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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been working with young students for many years but have only recently made the career switch to teaching. My area of specialty is language arts at all levels(reading/writing/comprehension) but I can certainly tutor in any subject area K-3.

My students have always found me to be fun, energetic and supportive. Together, your child and I will determine his/her learning style and set up concrete goals, assessing and adjusting throughout the process.

While working with your child to provide support, the most important goal is to develop a set of effective study tools that he/she will come to implement instinctively.
