I would like to respond to this only negative student comment I have ever received in seven years. First, I made a special sacrifice to work her in on an extremely busy day near the end of the school year. When my other appointments ran over, I kept her updated with texts that I was running late. Second, she brought a friend in the hope of getting two people for the price of one. That is why I think she left the negative comment when she found that was not how it worked. Thirdly, neither she nor her friend brought their ACT or SAT study guide. She should not have to be told to come prepared since her college professors will certainly not tell her that. Please refer to the positive comments students had left during the years.

"Great tutor, good guy!"

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have a master's degree in School Counseling awarded in August 1998 from Marshall University in Huntington/South Charleston, WV. The curriculum dealt with the spectrum of special education issues including IEP's, special needs, and ADD/ADHD. I also have over twenty years experience in the field as a classroom teacher, homebound instructor, and substitute teacher.

ESL/ESOL

I have excellent verbal and written English skills, as well as extensive teaching experience with non-native English speaking students over the last twenty-five years. I very much enjoy working with students from other cultures.

Praxis

I am a 20-plus year veteran teacher and tutor who has passed Praxis himself. I was a certified math teacher in WV, VA, and SC; I have taught across almost all curriculum and grade levels as a home-bound teacher. I would be very comfortable tutoring for Praxis preparation.
Thank You,
Tony C.

Social Studies

I became a certified social studies teacher (through Grade 12) in 1985 from Concord University in Athens, West Virginia. I also certified reciprocally in Virginia and South Carolina.

Special Needs

I have a master's degree in School Counseling from Marshall University in Huntington/South Charleston, WV that was awarded in August, 1998. The program deals with special education issues through its curriculum. I also have experience with special needs students as a teacher, substitute teacher, and homebound instructor.

Study Skills

I have been certified in three states to teach secondary school mathematics and social studies. I have over twenty years experience as a classroom teacher, tutor, and substitute/homebound teacher where I instructed students across all curriculum subjects. I have also had courses on study skills as an undergraduate and possess a Masters Degree in Secondary School Counseling.
