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.

Biology

As a student in college, I worked as a biology lab assistant for 2 years. I helped with tutoring, correcting papers, and answering student's questions. In 2004, I received my B.A. in Biology, and in 2007 my M.S. in Biology. Between my B.A. and my M.S. I worked with high school students and practical research techniques.

Ecology

Throughout my schooling, I was always intrigued by ecological issues. As a researcher, I studied various ecological problems. I graduated with my M.S. in Biology and have a good understanding of ecology, though one can always learn more!

English

I have 4 years of ESL teaching experience in Brazil. I have taught classes with students ages 10-65, and levels beginning to advanced. My teaching is based on conversation, as opposed to grammar. However, if it is needed that we go over grammatical concepts we can do so.

ESL/ESOL

I have 4 years of ESL teaching experience in Brazil. I have taught classes with students ages 10-65, and levels beginning to advanced. In addition, I have worked with some students on studying for the TOEFL and other language-based tests.

Grammar

Grammar is the vital tool necessary for excelling in a language. For 4 years I was an ESL teacher and while grammar was not the focus of the class, it was an issue that came up every day. As a teacher, I had a solid understanding of many grammatical concepts that students had difficulties with. And if I am ever in doubt, I will find you the answer and help explain it to you in a clear and concise manner until you are able to grasp it!

Portuguese

I lived 4 years in Brazil and taught myself to speak Portuguese. I understand that a conversational approach, opposed to grammatical or translation, is the best way to learn another language. My Portuguese abilities are at the advanced level.
