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.

English

I have three+ years of experience as a classroom instructor, I hold a BA in English, and am certified to teach English to students in grades 6-12. Grammar, mechanics, sentence structure and syntax are a few of the areas I specialize in.

ESL/ESOL

I am an experienced multilingual ESOL instructor with a plethora of activities, lessons and other resources ready for use that will not only increase your fluency in English, but will increase your confidence as well. I focus on conversational English, English for the workplace, vocabulary, and Language structure.

GED

After tutoring GED Prep Classes at Inlet Grove High School Riviera Beach, FL, (2011 - 2012) the success rate among Keturah's students was 89%. Students passed the GED exam and were among the top percentile.

Grammar

Parts of Speech, Grammatical Structure, Subject/Verb Agreement, Sentence Structure, Compound Sentences, and Subject/Predicate/Dangling Modifiers are just some of the topics in grammar that I can assist you with.

Literature

I have taught Literature to high school students for 3+ years. My literary exposure includes but is not limited to the following: Modern American Writers, Shakespearean Literature, Native American Literature, Caribbean Writers, and Renaissance Literature. With me, you will learn how to effectively apply your knowledge of literary devices to perform in depth literary analysis.

Proofreading

To, two, too. There, their, they're. We all know that these can alter one's meaning when writing so let me be your proofreading tutor/specialist and ensure that these and countless other mistakes are not made in your writing.

Reading

I have three+ years of experience as a classroom instructor, I hold a BA in English, and am certified to teach English/Reading to students in grades 6-12. My experience includes a record of taking students from low-performance to scores that were crucial in helping the school make AYP.

SAT Reading

Compare/Contrast
Cause/Effect
Descriptive
Problem/Solution
Sequence
Let me coach you and help you reach a level of mastery in utilizing these text structure skills and many other skills in reading.

SAT Writing

A compelling essay is not that difficult once you utilize the right skills. I will help you incorporate F.I.R.E. in your essay and ensure SAT writing success.

Spanish

Are you trying to learn Spanish for the workplace? Do you just want to meet your college's foreign language requirement? Are you getting ready to go on a trip to Spain, Puerto Rico or Costa Rica? Whatever the case, I can assist you with learning vocabulary, verb conjugation, simple to complex phrases, and accent reduction. Let's get started on our quest to speak like a native Spanish speaker.

Vocabulary

As an English teacher, vocabulary lessons are quintessential in my classroom. I will teach you how to improve your vocabulary easily. Using Greek and Latin roots, you can figure out the meaning of a word you have never seen before, as well as the part of speech it belongs to. Let's build a mental word wall together.

Writing

You have no thesis statement. Your writing is not persuasive enough. You need to elaborate. This sentence does not have parallel structure. You need to stay on topic. If you have struggled with any of these, you've just found the right tutor. My expertise includes business writing, college essays, proposals, research papers, term papers, translations and much more.
