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.

Bible Studies

I have participated in numerous Bible studies and led one for about a year. I have also taught Sunday school and Vacation Bible School and taken college religion and theology classes.

College Counseling

I have helped people with their applications for graduate and professional school, suggesting revisions to essays and ensuring forms are complete. I proofread my friend's application essay for Harvard Divinity School and caught a major error; she was accepted. I also helped a woman from Mongolia with her application essays for dental school and made sure she answered the questions properly.

ESL/ESOL

I can teach you English grammar and help you improve your writing. I can also act as a conversation partner and teach you about American culture if necessary.

Religion

I have taken undergraduate college classes in Bible, theology and American religious history. I have also read widely on my own about comparative religion. My main area of knowledge is Christianity (mostly Protestantism), but I am also familiar with Islam and Judaism. I have written journalistic articles about Christianity, Islam and Buddhism. I am happy to work with students studying religion as an academic subject at religiously affiliated and secular schools and colleges.

Spelling

As an editor, I know many ways to remember commonly misspelled words, and I can teach them to you.

Writing

I have experience helping people with essays and other writing assignments for college and graduate school classes, as well as college applications. I can teach you punctuation and grammar, plus help you find the major holes in your work and fix them.
