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.

ASVAB

Since 2014, I have helped numerous service members prepare for the arithmetic reasoning (AR) and mathematics knowledge (MK) sections of the ASVAB. As of this writing, all of my ASVAB clients have seen significant improvements in their test scores. Recently, one of my ASVAB clients qualified for the Army's special forces career track after scoring in the mid-50s on both the AR and MK sections of his test. It should be noted that this client's math skills were very shaky when we started working together. However, by breaking down the math concepts he needed to know and working through a wide range of sample questions together, I was able to help this client boost his ASVAB math scores by at least 25 points.

If you want to maximize your ASVAB score, be sure to let me know. My rate for in-person and online ASVAB support is $40 per hour.

CBEST

The California Basic Educational Skills Test (CBEST) is extremely manageable with the right support. When I took the CBEST in 2006, I earned nearly perfect scores on both the reading and math sections of the exam. If you're an aspiring teacher and you'd like help preparing for your CBEST, please let me know.

SAT Reading

One of my tutoring specialties is helping students maximize their scores on the critical reading section of the SAT. Over the past couple of years, I have developed several easy-to-implement strategies that have resulted in major score improvements for my SAT critical reading students. In November 2014, one of my students went from a 540 to a 690 on the critical reading section of the SAT. While this student's score improvement was particularly impressive, many of my other SAT critical reading students have seen substantial score improvements as well. It's never too soon to start preparing for the SAT, so if you need support with the critical reading section, be sure to let me know.
