Tutoring is centered around the student as this approach seems quite effective. G.E.D. and A.S.V.A.B. are my specialties, especially in the subjects of mathematics and grammar. With over ten years of combined teaching and tutoring experience, I am committed to ensuring that my students get the quality, attention, and instruction that they are entitled to.

Each student is different and has different needs. Therefore, it is important that once I find out what the student is lacking or needs improvement in, then I focus on that specific area; this tends to lead to a more efficient and productive utilization of time, as opposed to "covering everything." However, if the student needs general help, then we will "cover" from A to Z.

I teach elementary, middle, and high school level and I am especially interested in helping students prepare for their G.E.D. and A.S.V.A.B. In addition to this, "writing skills" are critical and so is "basic mathematics" - I absolutely love teaching both of them!

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.

Accounting

Accounting takes focus and concentration to maintain accuracy and follow through with the correct solutions to the problems. We focus on analyzing the problem and providing the correct or appropriate solution required.

ACT English

The ACT is a standardized type of entrance test so a systematic approach can be used.

Algebra 1

Algebra requires a lot of focus and concentration, as well as practice.

ASVAB

The ASVAB deals with speed and accuracy and there are occasions when the answer is simpler than previously thought.

Chess

HI,
I have been playing chess for several years and I am able to teach a beginner the basic moves. There are certain styles of chess (openings, middle game, and end game) that are quite popular and effective. Chess is a lot of fun and I find that it is quite helpful in getting players to think about cause-and-effect, consequences, and life. I am available 7 days per week to teach anyone how to play chess. Contact me.

English

English requires focus, concentration and practice, but once the effort is put forth, the tasks tend to become easier.

ESL/ESOL

ESL/ESOL requires a lot of focus and practice.

GED

The GED is a test that may require dedication and continuous effort for preparation.

Grammar

Grammar deals with a set of rules and guidelines and it can be improved with much practice.

Prealgebra

Prealgebra, like the rest of the discipline, requires focus and commitment. It also helps to practice whenever possible.

Proofreading

It is important to be able to objectively look at a piece of writing and to apply the habit of approaching it without bias. This can be challenging at times, but with practice, proofreading can become a more definite exercise. Essays can be proofread and edited online so if there is a need for any writings to be proofread or edited (college essays, university essays, and other pieces of writing), please do not hesitate to contact me. For example, if you have written a research paper and you need it checked for grammar or content, please contact me for assistance.

SAT Writing

Writing is a process and a journey that continues.

Writing

Writing is a process that can be improved and mastered and I teach it in a manner that encourages student proficiency and confidence.
