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.
Math can be fun once you have the basics down. I have tutored math one-on-one and in small groups. I understand the importance of formulas and carefully following each step to the answer. I teach students to know what they have, know what they are looking for, and know what they need to get there. Reading also plays a critical role in math because students need to understand what the problem is asking. Using my skills as a certified English teacher, I teach skills to read and understand word problems correctly. This is especially important on state tests.
As a certified 6th-12th English teacher, I am aware of the basic needs that an elementary student has in order to advance to the next level. I have privately tutored elementary aged students, worked in a day care, and with elementary-aged children in volunteer settings.
I have successfully tutored math students privately and in the public school system. I encourage students to use visuals and color coding to empower their learning.
Science is fun! Because science is based on lots of concepts and basic facts, I can teach strategies such as Thinking Maps, a great visual tool, and Foldables, a great visual and tactile tool, to help students grasp the subject quickly and with ease.
I am a certified English teacher, and I enjoy reading and writing. Grammar is fun, too, and it helps in both reading and writing. I have creative ways to help you learn all of these. Get ready for success!
I love to work with people who want to learn English. Learning languages is fun and exciting.
I myself understand how it feels to learn a new language. I am semi-fluent in Spanish, and I picked up a few phrases in Swahili too. I have been to Mexico, El Salvador, and Kenya.
As a certified English teacher and one who has worked with ESL students in the past, I understand the hindrances and the needs you have.
Please let me join you on your journey to learning English!
Computers are one of my favorite hobbies. From Word to Excel to PowerPoint to search engines to photo enhancement software to blogs to social media, there's always something new to discover. Good computer skills are important to have in our society and especially in the workplace. I have been using computers since I was a child (I even wrote my own programs in BASIC computer language). Being a certified English teacher also helps me to teach computer skills step by step.
Excel can be tricky, but it's fun once you learn the basics. I can help with items such as sorting, formatting, concatenation, mail merges for letters or reports and much more. I also have helpful links for those complicated formulas.
I am a proficient user of Outlook. I have used Outlook on a daily basis at work for over 8 years. I have had professional training, but I am also self-taught. I know how to use advanced features and personalize settings. I also use my certified English teacher degree to help me compose professional emails.
As a certified English teacher, I have been using my public speaking skills in the classroom for over eight years. I have been in education for about fifteen years and have used these skills in various capacities. I have given numerous presentations including professional development for two different school districts. By consulting one-on-one with a number of teachers, I have helped them improve their public speaking skills. Moreover, I earned an A in my college speech class.
Reading is an important foundation and skill to have. I use many proven strategies including context clues, KWL (know/want/learn), text connections, graphic organizers, Thinking Maps, and Foldables to help students to be successful in their reading. As a certified English teacher I understand how reading affects all other subject areas and how to be an effective reader in those areas.
I have many study skills to offer that I have learned from several years of professional development as well as personal development in my classroom. I can teach mind mapping, mind sketching, foldables (hands-on tool), brainstorming, critical thinking, self-editing, note-taking, correct highlighter usage, organizing, color coding, graphic organizers, and more.
I have played tennis on/off for more than 25 years. I played on Jr. High and High School tennis teams. I coached Jr. Varsity High School Tennis one season.
Writing is fun!
As a certified English teacher, I enjoy writing stories, poems, resumes, letters, essays, and many other kinds of writing. You get to express your thoughts and feelings and your beliefs and ideas.
You can influence others and make a difference. Communication is an important skill in life and writing is crucial communication skill to possess.
You will use it in all other subjects, in the future, in your job quest and in your career.
