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.

CBEST

I currently teach a math and English class at a nursing school. I tutored several friends for the CBEST test and have taken the test myself, passing the first time. I have extensive knowledge of both math and English skills and experience in writing essays. I am good at getting people to focus on how to solve problems in a way that is clear to them.

Elementary (K-6th)

I worked for 7 years at a learning center working with k-8th grade students. I have worked with all ages in all subjects, helping with homework from 3 different elementary schools in the San Diego area. I also homeschooled 2 of my own children.

ESL/ESOL

I have my teaching credential in adult education, secondary skills. I have taught ESL classes for several years through Poway and Grossmont Union School Districts. I have tutored many students. I receive excellent evaluations from my principals and my students enjoy my classes.

GED

I currently teach GED at an adult school. I taught high school for 7 years at a charter homeschool. I also homeschooled my own children through middle and high school. I am very familiar with the concepts needed to pass the GED tests.

Microsoft PowerPoint

I have worked with Powerpoint for the last eleven years at different office jobs. I have taken several classes in Powerpoint through San Diego College. I currently use Powerpoint almost daily designing seminar material for my boss. I also use Powerpoint in homeschooling my son. I am very familiar with all aspects of Powerpoint.

Speech

I taught high school foreign exchange students from 1997 to 2007. I taught English language, pronunciation, and culture. From 2010 to present I have been teaching ESL (English as a second language) to adults through an Adult School in El Cajon, CA.

Study Skills

I am the lead teacher at the Sycuan Education Department assisting 15 students in after school high school homework help. I have done this for the past 7 years. I have my Bachelor's Degree and Teaching Certificate in secondary education. I have many years of experience helping students organize their school work and improve their study skills.

Good first meeting.

She was very nice and helpful. We set up a plan for what I will do to get my GED. I felt comfortable talking to her. I feel like she is going to help me reach my goal.
