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.

Common Core

I taught Common Core standards as a teacher and currently tutor grades 2-11 Common Core standards in ELA and Math.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a master's degree in Education (K-12) and taught 2 years of 2nd grade, 2 years of 4th grade and 4 years of 3rd grade. I currently tutor students from the 2nd through 11th grades.

Handwriting

With a master's in education and 10 years of teaching and tutoring experience I have helped students from K-11th grades write, read, etc. Specifically, four of those years, I taught 3rd graders handwriting. Many of the students I worked with also received direct assistance from me on their print handwriting.

Spanish

Spanish is my first language and I am fully fluent in both Spanish and English. I taught Dual-Language, Full Immersion Spanish for 5 years in Las Vegas, NV. I have successfully tutored students as young as Kinder up to and including adult healthcare professionals become more confident and fluent speaking, reading, writing and understanding Spanish.

Study Skills

With a master's degree in Education and 10 years of teaching and tutoring experience, I have helped students grades 2-11th truly understand and learn, prepare for tests, and apply effective study skills. For 5 years in a row, my students scored the highest of their grade level on state standardized tests.

Great service

She was great with Kyle. We are just not able to work out scheduling conflicts with Kyles weekly schedule. I will talk with Kyle to figure out our next step and likely reach out to Wyzant in the future.
