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.

Aspergers

I am presently tutoring a student with Aspergers syndrome. I have been working with this student for two tear as a WyzAnt tutor. It is very satisfying. I had to figure out the rules the student worked by, because they are important to him.

I didn't try to change his behavior, unless it was unacceptable. I find it is important not to get the student upset as he can become very anxious. He has very few strategies for dealing with anxiety. The more anxious the student becomes the more withdrawn he is lightly to get and will not process the content.

It can take time to set up the study-space. This can be helped by asking the student what makes them feel comfortable.

I feel it requires compassion, understanding, communication, patience and passion for teaching.

Chemistry

I taught regents chemistry to juniors, at at private school. At the same school I also taught general chemistry to sophomores. I have fours years experience teaching chemistry.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a masters in Education. I have been a Substitute teacher in Elementary schools from 2009-2013 on Port Washing School District in New York. I have tutored elementary students for WyzAnt and Academic Advantage.

Elementary Math

I tutored students as part of the No Child Left Behind Program in elementary math. This involved pre-testing the student, choosing educational goals based on the test, planning lessons and teaching the students for three months to meet these educational goals, and administrating a post-test to students.

I presently tutor those who are preparing for the NYS tests.

Nutrition

I have a Degree in Home Economics. As part of my undergraduate I studied food science for two semesters (one school year) and a separate course in nutrition for an additional two semesters.

Sewing

I studied home economics for 4 year of college, B 'Edu Home Economics. This involves taken sewing and clothing construction classes. I also taught sewing at middle school for 4 years
