PCC (Englsh education)
I have taught hundreds of students in both group and individual settings. In these classes, I have helped students improve their understanding of English, Spanish, math, the SAT, and the ACT.
I first started tutoring as a teenager helping my parents with the students struggling in the classes they taught. Through college, I tutored fellow classmates to passing grades in both English and Spanish. To this day, I continue on that course as a tutor and a full-time ESL professor at a private academy in VA.
My degree in English and Spanish education, my fluency in Spanish, and my experience in education makes me an excellent tutor for reading, writing, speaking and listening in either English or Spanish. My master's degree in Educational Administration has helped me understand education on a broader range of levels.

In SAT instruction especially, parents can view the tutoring as an investment because good SAT scores help students qualify for scholarships that can save thousands and even tens of thousands of dollars on college tuition.

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.
