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've taught classes to 2nd through 8th graders in a school setting.

Study Skills

My undergraduate and graduate studies have equipped me with the study skills to successfully tutor others in this area. I have always been an exceptional student, and my grade point averages reflect this. My Bachelor of Arts in international studies prepared me to think, analyze and be open-minded; my Master of Science in journalism taught me to research, investigate and create.
