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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been working individually and with groups of elementary students since 1992. I am experienced working with students learning english as a second language, tutoring all subjects K-6. I have worked closely with classroom teachers to help students increase their understanding and learning in many subject areas including reading, writing, math, social studies and science.

ESL/ESOL

I have been working with english language learners for more than 15 years in various settings. I have taught students individually and in groups, in person and online. I learned a second language and culture and understand the difficulty. I have taught ESL in public schools and also through a local business. I have worked with both children and adults.

Phonics

I worked closely with a reading specialist learning how to teach spelling, reading and decoding through phonics. I worked in an elementary school and a middle school with English proficient students and also with English language learners teaching reading. I have worked with several different phonics learning systems.

Sewing

I have been sewing clothing since I was a child. Before any formal lessons I created my own patterns and sewed by hand. Once I learned how to use a sewing machine in school, I have made clothing, home decorating items, costumes, and accessories. I follow patterns easily and have taught others to do so also. In my first home ec class we were required to complete 2 garments. I completed 5, one of which was a reversible jacket. I enjoy sewing and sharing that love with others.
