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.

I was an elementary teacher for 12 years, teaching all grades and subjects for grades K-6.

I have a BA in Literature. I have an MA in Education. I have two life credentials, one of which is in English K-14. I am National Board Certified in Early Adolescent English/Language Arts. I was a Literacy Coach for 8 years for middle and high school and I taught for many years.
I have the proper additional California certification in ESL. Also, I am a National Board Certified Teacher in early adolescent English/language arts.

As a child I went to Hebrew School from the age of 4 until I graduated high school. I attended LA Hebrew High School while attending public school. In college I took Hebrew courses and from UCSD I received my minor in Hebrew Literature. As an adult, I keep refreshed in reading, writing and conversational language.
I judged high school and college forensics (speech & debate) tournaments for five years. I taught persuasive writing & speaking to my eighth, ninth, tenth, eleventh and twelfth graders when I taught public school as an English teacher and Literacy Coach.
I am highly qualified to tutor in Study Skills. I was a middle and high school literacy coach for eight years while also teaching middle and high school. Among my many duties as a literacy coach was to help prepare the students for standardized testing each year, which included lessons and practice in maintaining good study skills. I would make a great tutor in this area.
