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)

Currently I am a certified library teacher in an elementary school. In addition to working closely with the reading and language arts consultant on daily lesson and unit plans which integrate building-wide reading strategies (e.g. close reading, elements of nonfiction, conferencing, etc.), I also work with the math/science specialist to incorporate math vocabulary as well as science themes (rocks/minerals, matter, butterflies). Since Social Studies at the elementary is often pushed aside for tested materials, the library is where most students learn about African-American History, the contributions of women and immigrants through read alouds and comparisons of fiction/nonfiction texts. My certification is K-12 and I am considered a "highly qualified teacher."

Government & Politics

As a former high school Social Studies Teacher, I have vast experience teaching US History and Government. I have taught both extensively, majored in History (B.A. and M.A.) and minored in Political Science.

Political Science

As a political science minor in college and an experienced government teacher on the secondary level, I believe that I am qualified to teach political science.

Reading

I have helped many struggling readers find "just right book" that not only sparks their interest in reading but has helped them improve their reading levels as well.

Social Studies

As a certified 7-12 Social Studies teacher in the state of Connecticut, I am considered a "highly qualified teacher," which should lend itself to tutor as well. I have over 10 years of Social Studies teaching experience.

Study Skills

Study skills such as organization, note-taking, pre-reading, and skimming are all taught in conjunction with freshmen years Western Civilization/World studies courses that I have previously taught. The use of an electronic or paper calendar will be discussed as well as time-management and breaking down larger assignments into manageable chunks. Many study skills are assigned accommodations for special education students with IEPs. These are areas that are taught and reinforced throughout all grade levels.
