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.

I served as an administrator for adult continuing education for over eleven years.

I counseled students in the welfare to work program for four years.

I have attended numerous professional conferences that relate to career development.

CBEST

I took and passed the CBEST when it was a much more challenging test than it is today. I scored in the 98th percentile and have many tips to share with students.

I was a teacher of high school students, in adult continuing education, and university courses. Furthermore, I was a public school administrator for more than eleven years.

I am an experienced English and ESL teacher at the high school level. I have taught ESL to adults and was a long time administrator for adult continuing education.

As an international traveler and student of other languages, I am sensitive to challenges that English language learners face.
