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.

ADD/ADHD

I have worked with students in various classrooms that have been ADD and ADHA. Also as part of my credential, I studied ADHD at the University of California, Irvine Child Development School. Structure, incentive and rewards are good ways to achieve results from a student with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

Aspergers

Asperger's is on the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This spectrum is called a spectrum for a reason. People with Asperger's typically have an high interest in one subject matter. I have a student that I have tutored for 11 years that falls in between Asperger's and High functioning Autism. It helps him to have goals, benchmark steps, and rewards.

Autism

I have many years experience at two school districts and a private company working one to one with students on the Autism spectrum. This has been a total of 12 years. Autism spectrum is called a spectrum for a reason. I have a student that I have tutored for 11 years that falls in between Asperger's and High functioning Autism. It helps him to have goals, benchmark steps, and rewards.

Bible Studies

I have taught Sunday school for about 18 years. I know my bible pretty well. There are different ways to teach the bible. I have taught a specific book in the bible, stories, or on a topic. I love teaching about biblical principles.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have about 12 years experience in elementary education in a variety of settings. I have been a substitute teacher in 3 different school districts. I have been a classroom teacher for a fourth grade class and a kindergarten class. I love working with a variety of age groups with a variety of methodologies.

Special Needs

I have several years working with students with special needs. I like to look at a person's abilities rather than their disability. I always like to encourage one to do the best of their ability. I have twelve years experience with kids with autism, ADD, ADHD, Angelman Syndrome, and Cerebral Palsy. I have worked in two school districts and a private company.

Study Skills

I have worked with student's for several years on study skills. Teaching student's on how to prioritize tasks is a skill that can be learned.
I have been tutoring and working on study skills for eleven years. There are many skills that can be learned to facilitate better study skills. Study skills can be learned as early as Kindergarten up until college. Study skills include good testing strategies.
