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.


I have taught students diagnosed ADD/ADHD through Rochester City School District and Escondido School District with excellent results. I was Special ED Coordinator at both districts. I also adopted two special needs kids.


I was the special Ed teacher and director of a local charter school. I have worked with children with Aspergers as well as other disabilities with great success.


I have taught students with Autism K-12 with great success. I was the Special Ed. Coordinator for Charter HS in Escondido. Also I adopted children with Special Needs.


I have taught floral arranging and landscape Architecture. I am also an avid gardener with a green thumb.


I just graduated with an MBA with a GPA of 3.79. I feel very confident to teach any business course. I also have a Master's degree in Education.

College Counseling

I have been a college counselor assisting students with entrance exam preparation, financial aid, and career development.
Also I have helped numerous students with writing of their college/university entrance essays.


I am an excellent cook. I have taught cooking classes/Home Economics at The Rochester City School District.


I have taught 100's of students with "Dyslexia" in NY and CA with great success. 95% graduated and went on to community colleges.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have elementary certification in CA and NY K-6. I have taught on the elementary level for over 20 years.


I have taught ESL/ESOL for over 15 years for the Rochester City School District and for the Escondido School District. Also teach English to foreign language learners through EF on Alliant Campus. I also tutor students in English grades k-12.


I have taught ISEE/SSAT exams for 5 years at the lower, middle and upper levels. All my students have been accepted to the Private Schools of their choice. The test is comprehensive including an essay that is objective and not graded. However, that essay may be the key to entrance.
It is a 3 hour exam that is highly Intensive and requires a great deal of practice.
I work one on one and in small groups.


I have elementary certification with specialization in reading and phonics. Have taught K-12 for the past 20 years with great results. Also specialize in phonics with special needs kids, ADD, ADHD, autistic, Aspergers, etc.

Public Speaking

Public speaking is one of our biggest fears and I have been trained to make it easier. Through classes and workshops as well as Toastmasters, my students excel and before they know it, they can present in front of large and small groups with great success.

Social Studies

Have taught social studies at k-12 level for 15 years.

Special Needs

I adopted 2 children with special needs and they are now successful at 21 and 22 years of age. I have been the Special Ed coordinator for Charter HS in Escondido. Also was a Home/Hospital teacher for 10 years working with children with special needs where I was chosen Teacher of the Year.

Study Skills

I tutored study skills through Club Z for 6 years and Sylvan for 3 years. It is rewarding seeing the students take ownership of their success through better study habits, organization and assessment.
