I am a certified Elementary school teacher in the state of Pennsylvania. I have taught in elementary settings in Jamaica, England, and the US. I have a passion for working with students who struggle academically. For approximately five years, I have been employed as an adjunct faculty at a local community college, where I teach the freshman orientation course. The course content includes study skills, time management and goal setting skills, note taking skills, reading skills, and test taking skills. Examples of my method of tutoring include: textbook assignments, reading assignments in journals, monographs, etc. Reading assignments in supplementary books, assignment to outline portions of the textbook, and supplementary readings.

In my experience as a tutor, I have had students improve their grade level and also move up from failing to a passing grade.

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.
