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.

ADHD

In addition to five years in a class room setting I have worked in a mentoring setting helping ADHD youth focus on positive behavioral choices and academic goals.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

As a class room teacher with five years of experience I have worked with multiple levels of functionality. I have successfully motivated and engaged students to work to their full capacity and provided guidance and accommodation to facilitate success.

Public Speaking

As a full time teacher and project facilitator I have had the opportunity to speak in front of multiple groups and teach students to speak fluently and confidently in public.

Study Skills

I have a Masters degree in teaching and six years of classroom experience. I have been successful in helping college level students successful complete course work and achieve positive outcomes.

World History
