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.

Spanish

I specialize in assisting high school, junior high, and college students who have difficulty with all levels of Spanish courses or who wish to maintain high grades. Typically, we study grammar concepts in depth, work on homework, and practice correct pronunciation. When required, we focus on essay writing, reading comprehension, and/or culture assignments. I also work extensively with students preparing for regular tests as well as AP & SAT exams.
