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.

Bible Studies

I grew up the daughter of a Christian minister. I have taught Sunday School, Bible School, and Bible Study. I have been a regular church attendee all of my life. I have continued for many years in personal Bible Study, and in extensive reading and listening to Christian authors. I have also participated in mission trips and projects related to my church. I completed a college level Bible course while attending the university for my bachelor's degree. I have participated in many Bible Study groups over the years, some being led by our Sunday school teacher, who is also a PhD level college professor. Throughout my lifetime, I have spoken one-on-one to many individuals about my faith in Jesus Christ. I have also been in the cast and crew of two faith based short films.

Elementary (K-6th)

I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education (K-6). I am also certified in Early Childhood / Handicapped, English, and Health Education. I am an experienced teacher, having taught Elementary (K-6), all subjects, in public and private schools. In addition, I have earned graduate credit in education and psychology.

Handwriting

I have taught handwriting, both printing and cursive, in public schools for over 7 years, and in private schools for over 10. I hold a degree in Elementary Education with a specialization in English. Penmanship is still an important tool for communication.

Phonics

I am a strong proponent of teaching phonics as the foundation for reading. I learned to read by this method and taught it to my elementary level students in public school. I hold a degree in Elementary Education. I also taught my own children to read by the phonics method.

Public Speaking

I have taught speech as a public school teacher and home school educator for 17 years. I have personally spoken before many audiences, large and small, which qualifies me to pass along what I have learned to my students. I have judged several student speech competitions over the years.

Study Skills

As a public school teacher and home school educator for 17 years, I have taught study skills as part of my regular curriculum. I have tutored high school students on study skills as they prepared to take CLEP and DANTES tests to gain college credit. I have prepared many materials to aid students in improving their study habits. In addition, I have stressed proper health and nutrition habits as part of developing study skills.
