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.

ADD/ADHD

I worked for four years as a writing tutor for disabled students at Grossmont Community College in El Cajon, California. This means that I have four years of experience successfully tutoring students with ADHD. I helped many students with ADHD compose essays and successfully complete their classes by teaching them ways to overcome their disability. For example, I taught them to break their assignments into small steps so they could focus on and complete one task at a time until their work was finished. With ADHD students, I keep instructions simple, the workspace quiet, and always tutor them in a positive, encouraging manner.

Braille

I have been reading Braille myself since age four. I have over seven years of experience teaching and tutoring English reading and writing. I also have almost two years of experience teaching blind students at a school for the visually impaired. My excellent teaching and tutoring skills, along with my extensive knowledge of Braille, make me more than qualified to tutor students learning Braille.

Microsoft Outlook

I have worked as a computer trainer for for seven years--at the San Diego Center for the Blind, Grossmont Community College, and as an independent contractor for the Department of Vocational Rehabilitation. I have taught both disabled and nondisabled people how to use Microsoft Outlook, as well as many other computer programs. I start by finding out what they are having trouble with and then teaching them how to do it in the easiest way that works best specifically for them.

Study Skills

First, I have a Bachelor's degree and all but one semester of a Master's degree, which gives me several years of personal experience using study skills. Second, I taught reading and writing at the university level for two years, and also tutored community college students for more than seven years, most of whom needed to learn study skills. I have taught countless students such things as how to organize papers and computer files, how to read with a purpose, chart and annotate texts, and take effective notes.
