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.

Business

I have owned an operated a small business successfully for 32 years. I do all my own accounting, billing, advertising, etc. and would love to help someone who is thinking of starting or considering a new business or improving on a business they already have.

I have BA in English from UCSB.

ESL/ESOL

I was an English major and I could easily tutor ESL. I speak French and enough Spanish to make it easier for a student.

General Computer

I have been using computers for probably 35 years now- both Macs and PC's. I often teach people how to use their computers, how to troubleshoot problems, and using various software programs such as Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Outlook, Access, Powerpoint and Publisher), as well as Quickbooks, Visio AutoCAD, Photoshop, Adobe Acrobat, email programs, Palm Software, Corel Cardscan Database Software, scanning, graphics, custom printing and more. Also skilled with social networking including Facebook, Blogs, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.

General Music

I have been reading music, singing and playing the violin as well as a little piano for most of my life. Would love to teach students to read music, to sing including harmony, beginning violin, and to sight read. I could easily help students learn their vocal parts.

Sight Singing

I started singing in Kindergarten and have been in musical groups, choirs, and singing classes ever since including UCSB advanced singing classes. I've also taken more sight singing classes at Santa Barbara City College, and studied Performance Singing for the last 10 years.

Tennis

I have been playing tennis and taking tennis lessons almost non stop for 37 years. I was married to a tennis pro for 14 years as well as taken many years of private lessons. I have been playing 4.0 USTA for 15-20 years, Interclub tennis, and, coached the children's Matchpoint program for several years.

Violin

I have been playing the violin for 38 years. I studied with two different teachers privately for over 15 years and have been playing first violin in the Santa Barbara City College for over 35 years.

Voice (Music)

I have been singing in choirs and other musical genres since I was 5. In junior and high school, I was in 3-4 musical groups as well as performed in musicals. I studied voice at UCSB and have been studying voice privately as well as performance singing for the last 10 years.
