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.

College Counseling

I currently work in a college tutoring center that helps students with admissions essay writing. I also tutor students in SAT Reading preparation, especially writing strong essays. I am a strong writer with a good understanding of what college admissions departments are looking for.

Writing

I am a professional writer with more than 30 years of publishing experience. For the past six years I have also tutored writing at the Bucks County Community College as well as via private sessions.
