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.

College Counseling

I have been working with high school students on building college portfolios for the past 4 years. As a counselor, I focus on the passions of the student and how to appropriately and efficiently sell their passions and talents to each university.

Every university is different so you need to find parallels between each student and each school within the essay writing process.

COOP/HSPT

Training for the COOP/HSPT takes time. I always practice major concepts with my students and then do practice tests on a weekly basis. After each test, there is a review session to better understand the concepts that were missed.

The hardest part of standardized tests is learning to take the test and getting comfortable. This just takes practice.

Handwriting

I have beautiful handwriting and have been tutoring elementary school students on how to better improve their handwriting for 3 years.

During my time at Stanford, I volunteered at the local Boys and Girls club and facilitated handwriting classes.

Microsoft Outlook

I have been using Microsoft Outlook for 8 years. It is my main email account for work. I am confident that I can teach you as well.

Public Speaking

As the CEO and founder of an online lifestyle magazine, I spend many hours a week leading seminars and public speaking.

I like to make public speaking fun by helping the student research the topic, become comfortable with the information and then learn how to exude their personality within the speech.

I also do audience engagement exercises as well as work on shyness and nervousness.
