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.

Film

I taught a class for the San Mateo Adult School in Film Appreciation recently. In preparation, I completed college and university courses in Film Studies which included American Cinema, American Film History, and Third World Cinema. In my personal time, I often watch The Actor's Studio which has interviewed many film actors and producers, as well as visiting film studios in New York, Burbank, and Orlando. It is one if my favorite subjects and I have viewed hundreds, if not thousands, of films. A few special areas of interest include films made from novels, American Classic Films, and British Colonial films especially those about India.

Handwriting

I taught Beginning Cursive Handwriting to third grade students in a Burlingame public school this year. There are a number of techniques such as "tow truck" and reference charts that can assist a student, as well as my own modeling of the writing process. My patience and techniques were complimented by my Co-teacher in the classroom. This is a process I both enjoy doing and teaching as I view handwriting as part of the Creative Writing process. I've taught Writing Workshops and creative journaling for over 8 years helping students to express themselves.

Literature

I have experience with the following: American Literature, Modern British Literature, post-Colonial Literature, and Poetry.

Special Needs

While attending San Francisco State University, I worked as a tutor for the Disabled Students Resource Center on campus. My work included tutoring college students in English, Business English, Essay a Writing, Research Papers, and presentations. Students with special needs included learning needs caused by conditions and diseases including Cerebral Palsy, M.S. (Multiple Sclerosis), Low Vision and Blindness, as well as Dyslexia.
