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.
I have taught elementary grade students (pre-K through grade 3) in both enrichment classes and through direct classroom instruction. My integrated approach to teaching STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) subject matter includes applying process, critical and creative thinking processes. By design this approach incorporates reading and writing skill development across domains in supporting learning through these critical developmental years. I am already qualified in K-6th science and math subjects.
Understanding genetics is foundational to learning advanced subjects in cell, molecular and developmental biology and medicine. I taken advanced genetics, molecular biology and conducted research in developmental biology.
