Approved subjects are in bold.
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.
Successful teaching and tutoring is based on a student's learning style. Some students are visual learners, some auditory learners, some kinesthetic or "hands-on" learners. I have experience in the classroom as a teacher, as a visiting artist, as a substitute teacher and as a tutor. My ability to present materials in a way that is compatible with the student's learning style is key to building the student's confidence and helping the student truly understand the subject matter.
Students can be visual learners, auditory learners or kinesthetic learners. Some people have a combination of learning styles.
Working one-on-one with a student allows the tutor to observe how the student processes information. Choosing materials that fit the student's learning style is key to developing effective study skills.
I have worked as a teacher, artist in the schools, substitute teacher, university professor and private tutor.
Whether tutoring a child or an adult learner, understanding how an individual processes information is the key to ensure the student's success.
