Wow! Today's poll for all WyzAnt tutors was very simple: Are you a certified teacher- yes or no? To my surprise, only 30% are certified teachers. THIRTY PERCENT! Are you kidding? I am completely shocked by this low number. That means that 7 out of every 10 tutors located on this site have never stepped foot in a classroom. This certainly does not mean that the many tutors on WyzAnt are not good at what they do, and while it is true that teaching 25 kids in a classroom and consulting a student one-on-one are very different situations, teaching experience is nothing but a plus for you as a student when it comes to you finding a tutoring match for your needs. Let's be frank: private tutoring is not cheap, nor is it a decision to take lightly. You need to be sure when you make an investment into a private tutor that it is someone not only caring and hardworking but also experienced- and that, for most people's satisfaction, means certified.
If you're looking for a certified teacher, I am one of the tutors included in that 30% that are certified. Through the state of Texas I am certified to teach American Sign Language, Speech, Debate, and English as a Second Language. I also have private school experience in other areas such as Spanish, Elementary Education and many others. See my profile for more details. I'd love to ease your mind and help you learn!
