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.

Chinese

I have a teaching credential to teach Mandarin. I also have years of experience tutoring students in Mandarin. Further, I have over 20 years of experience teaching students in the elementary grades. More, I have tutored high school students and adults in Mandarin.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught elementary school-age children for seventeen years in the public schools. I have also tutored individuals for many years on a part-time basis. I enjoy making a difference for others through teaching.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught many students of English as a Second Language for over 20 years. My teaching credential specializes in teaching students who have a second language. I love teaching!

Phonics

I have taught elementary school-age children for seventeen years. Most of the years included teaching them phonics. My master's thesis was about how students learn new words and that included in-depth research about phonics and the teaching of phonics. I have basic material related to teaching phonics and some fun and exciting material and approaches to teaching it!
