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.

Cooking

Before I retired, I owned and operated three successful restaurants. In addition to running them, I was also the chef, the baker, and the menu designer. I can teach you quick and easy tricks for making many delicious recipes, including some of my own, and even show you better and easier ways to make your own or your grandmother's recipes.

Sewing

I used to make all my own clothes. I can show you how to read a pattern, how to lay it out on your fabric, how to cut your fabric, and how to sew it up, so that when you are finished it will fit perfectly.

I am also an expert knitter and needlepointer, and I can teach you the best of what I know about those.

Swimming

These days, with swimming pools everywhere, no child is safe until they can swim.

I have been around pools and swimming all my life. I was born at West Point Military Academy, where my father was the swimming instructor. As a (very) little girl, I swam with the Cadets.

I taught my son to swim when he was 18 months old. That was 45 years ago, and I have been teaching children to swim ever since. I taught my three stepsons to swim, and I also taught neighborhood kids: if they wanted to play in our yard, they had to know how to swim, because I couldn't watch the pool every second.

I can teach your child to swim no matter what age they happen to be. I am patient and kind, and I make the lessons fun, but I am firmly in control, because water is serious business.
