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.

English

I have my B.A. in English and have been teaching for the past 6 years.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught ESL for 6 years. I have taught all areas, reading, writing, listening and speaking.

Literature

I love literature! I studied it in college, and have my certification to teach Literature in Texas.

Study Skills

I have been teaching for 6 years, and worked with a variety of different learners. Based on whether or not someone is a visual, audio, or kinesthetic learner will influence the best method for study skills. I have helped low-literacy learners, pre-literate learners, collegiate level learners, and believe that a good teacher learns her students and tailors to their needs. Focusing is very difficult for some students because they don't know how to remain engaged. As an instructor, I believe it is my job to create a stimulating environment, to help direct their attention, then teach them the tools they need to study for their subject.

TOEFL

I taught TOEFL at the collegiate level for 2 years, and have tutored many privately.
