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.

ESL/ESOL

I am currently on the curriculum committee for a community ESL class offered locally. I help teach the adult classes and have been doing this for about two years now.

Also in 2010 I taught an English conversation class in South America to students of all ages (ranging teenager to late adult.)

Sign Language

I studied a year at Johnson County Community College under deaf professors. I worked at the College at the student center front desk where deaf students frequented and at times I would give them tours of the school's departments. I helped tutor two different hearing students--one via skype, and one in person. I bring material that helped teach me and I try to sign the majority of the time, with writing and obviously speaking when needed. I begin with emphasis on the alphabet, and go from there with vocabulary in categories, then conversing. I created a video blog about ESL and have a good network of deaf and ESL-interested individuals.
