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.

Chemistry

I can teach high school chemistry and introductory level college chemistry. I have not taken organic chemistry.

Nursing

I have graduated from De Anza College with an Associate's Degree in Nursing.

I am able to teach associate's level classes in: Basic Comfort and Care, Medical/Surgical, Pediatrics, Labor and Delivery, Psychiatric, Geriatrics, and Management of Care.

I am also able to teach critical thinking skills and mathematics related to medication administration.

Pharmacology

I have graduated from De Anza College with an Associate's Degree in Nursing.

I am able to teach all of the major drug classes related to Nursing Pharmacology. I can help with understanding the different drug categories as well as medication math related to drug administration.

Study Skills

As I am a Nursing student my area of expertise is the various placement tests required to get into the Nursing Programs.

Since I went to De Anza College I have the most experience with the placement tests to get into various De Anza classes as well as the HESI, which is a placement test that De Anza requires for Nursing students.

I am also able to assist in note taking for classes ranging from grade school all the way to the first two years of college and I can help prepare for any test in-between.

As Nursing is my most recent experience I feel that it is my strongest area, but I am able to strengthen study skills for any of the other subjects that I have posted on my profile.

I have a strong understanding of organizational skills related to effective note taking. As well as helping the student evaluate class lectures in a meaningful way, which is a good way to improve study skills for upcoming tests.
