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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am currently an elementary school teacher, K-3 and certified in General Ed, Spanish, ESL, and Language Arts. I have already become approved in English, Grammar, Literature, ESOL, and Spanish here on Wyzant.

Phonics

I have a B.A in Elementary Education, Spanish (FLES), and ESL. I teach linguistics at the graduate level online. I have taught elementary school reading, ESL, and general classroom for 15 years.

Praxis

I have been a tester for ETS on this area. I have taken the Praxis I and II and I became certified as a result. I have already helped colleagues in the past to pass the test. I am also familiar with the TESOL subject matter and writing parts of this exam.

Public Speaking

I have been a college instructor who depends on useful public speaking skills to convey effective instruction. I have hosted over 120 events where I have been asked to address a crowd, including the Robbie Burns Night and countless academic events. I am also a trained ELL instructor and one of my main duties is to help second language speakers to project and use their voices and their words effectively.

Regents

I have been a Regents tester, and have worked closely with the test as well as with the grading process. I have over three years of experience working with the Regents test. I am familiar with the format, and with what is is expected of the students.

Special Needs

I am a certified educator K-3 with over 15 years of training and professional development working with students with Aspergers, autism, and ADHD/ADD. I have worked one on one with special needs students and have actively participated from Case Studie Committees to develop Independent Educational Plans (IEPs). My M.A. is in Diverse Learner education as well, and I am trained in inclusion, mainstreaming, and co-teaching.

Study Skills

I am already working as a study skills advisor and tutor for students on a tutoring website. I have been working with study skills since 2008. I am also a teacher with 15 years of experience in elementary school, college, and at the Master's level.
