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.

Bible Studies

Having been educated in the Christian school system, I have extensive knowledge of the Bible. While attending a Christian High School and Christian University, I took numerous biblical studies courses. These included Hermeneutics (Biblical Interpretation), Prophecy, New Testament Survey, Doctrine, Church History, etc. As a Christian, I am well acquainted with the teachings of Jesus, and I constantly seek to better understand the Bible, both Old and New Testament.

CBEST

I took the CBEST in May of 2011. I spent a considerable amount of time preparing for it, and it paid off - I received a high score. I can pass along my knowledge of the areas that you will be tested on: reading comprehension, mathematics, and writing. I'll also provide you with sound test taking strategies that helped me greatly while taking the test.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am an English Language Instructor at the University of California, Riverside. This being the case, I teach vocabulary, writing, grammar, and virtually every other aspect of the English language to foreigners. I am also a graduate student of history at Norwich University. I also have a firm grasp of math and the sciences. I have the qualifications and experience to help your child excel in K-6 education.

ESL/ESOL

I am an ESL instructor at the University of California, Riverside. I have taught English to students from all of the following countries: Russia, China, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Iran and South Korea. I earned my TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) Certificate from UCR back in 2009. I have the qualifications and experience to help you dramatically improve your English.

Music History

As a history major who has taken several music history courses, music history is a subject which I am very familiar with. From the Gregorian chants that dominated the Middle Ages to the harpsichord and orchestral music that defined the Baroque Era, to the emergence of Jazz in the 20th century, I am very knowledgeable.

Russian

I have extensive knowledge in Russian, having studied it over the past several years. I have taken three Russian courses at the college level. Several of my friends are from Russia, and speaking Russian with them has helped quite a bit. I can read and write in Cyrillic, and when I speak Russian I am told that I have no discernible 'American' accent. Having gone through the TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) Program at UCR, I know how to go about teaching languages to individuals.

Study Skills

Whatever subject your student is struggling with, I have the experience and qualifications to drastically improve his or her academic performance.

I have years of tutoring experience, and have taught English as a Second Language at the University of California, Riverside.

I earned my Bachelor's in History from California Baptist University, am currently pursuing my MA in Military History from Norwich University, will be starting a teaching credential program at the University of Redlands February (2012), and have earned TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certification from the University of California, Riverside.
