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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified elementary teacher in the state of Alabama. I have taught all subjects as well as all grade levels from K-6 through my experiences at the University of Alabama. I have also tutored through another independent tutoring company for all subjects. I am proficient in tutoring methods and have a set method of how I guide my students to mastery.

Phonics

I have taught kindergarten for the past two years at a private school in Birmingham. During these two years, I taught with a program called Saxon which mainly focuses on phonics skills. We use this program to lay the building blocks for our students that are learning to read. I supplement the program with other worksheets and games in order to accommodate my students' individual needs.
