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 am certified in Women's Ministries at my church. I teach a Sabbath School class, and I teach at least 2 other Bible studies per week independent of my church.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have experience teaching elementary students in all subjects. I have tutored for an elementary school in math and reading.

ESL/ESOL

I am a certified teacher that has worked with ESL students previously in inclusion classrooms. Additionally, I was recently approved by Mercedes Benz to teach German speaking people English. I have designed a personal course for those individuals. I have also taken several foreign languages before, and I am familiar with techniques to teach language to English Language Learners.

Flute

I have played flute for over 15 years. I was an all-state flutist in high school. I teach flute lessons regularly during the summers. I play for different organizations in my area.

Praxis

I have taken and passed the Praxis. I also helped several students in my master's cohort study for the test. I organized their study.

Social Studies

I hold an Alabama Teaching Certificate in Social Studies. I have enough credit hours in social studies to teach at a college level. I did 6 months of student teaching for high school level social studies, and I prepared my students for the high school exit exam. I have passed the Praxis in social studies with a very high score of 183.

Study Skills

I have perfected an approach to good study skills over the course of my personal education. I have also successfully assisted many other people in improving their study skills. I use a variety of whole brain and multimedia methods to remember material.
