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.

ADD/ADHD

I have a great deal of experience working with students diagnosed with ADD and ADHD at the middle school level. I have implemented many strategies to increase focusing and organization. Just recently, my own daughter, age 9, was diagnosed with ADHD. As a tutor, I can provide one-to-one attention to a student's weak areas and implement strategies that will assist the student in learning. I am comfortable with and I have experience with students who have ADD/ADHD and have every confidence that learning can be very successful.

Algebra 1

Algebra I can be a challenging course because it's a different kind of mathematics. I consider myself to be a positive, dedicated and enthusiastic tutor who can help you build skills and confidence using Algebra! I hope to hear back from you at your convenience.

ASVAB

The math portion of the ASVAB can be tricky and I can help you build skills and confidence by tackling the type of questions that you will be asked. My second language is mathematics and I hope that my positive attitude can match your needs. I am looking forward to working with you!

Elementary Math

My Elementary Math education and experience is extensive. In addition to being a middle school teacher in mathematics, I have worked with many wonderful young people giving them strategies and help in math that makes learning fun and rewarding!

GED

You CAN achieve your GED by learning the required skills needed. I am the best tutor for you because I have been a middle school and high school special education teacher for over 20 years. Working with me will be challenging and fun! I am very familiar with the GED exam and can prepare you best by step-by-step learning and lots of practice. I am always on time, ready to get started and prepared with the exact lessons you need.

Praxis

I am a special education teacher and I have twenty-five years experience at the secondary level. In the past three years, I have coached two college students for their Praxis I math exams. Both students passed the first time, which is no easy feat. I am capable and ready to tutor students in their test preparation for the Praxis I math exam. I am fully literate in the math topics and concepts involved in the Praxis I math test including Geometry and Measurement, Algebra and Number Operations. I know that I would be a great tutor in the area of the Praxis I math exam due to my experience and my current certifications on the Wyzant.com website.

Public Speaking

Good afternoon potential students,

Did you know that most people prefer not to speak in front of an audience? Many physical stressors occur when people encounter the idea of speaking to others in a public setting. Symptoms such as hands sweating, hearts pumping and ideas erasing from people's minds cause many to choose to sit in silence. I have coached many students in public middle and high schools who had difficulty sharing their views with others.
By offering pointers such as writing small bits of information down on notecards to read from during the presentation, utilizing a poster that shows many visual aspects of the content of your presentation and by reviewing videotapes of practice sessions, these students transitioned to more comfortable public speakers. I am looking forward to helping you as you share your ideas and comments in public!

Reading

Reading is a journey that can take you places you've never even dreamed! I am dedicated to working with you on all the aspects of reading that you personally need to succeed in school and as a life-long learner.

Study Skills

Within my role as a special education teacher, I maintained a study skills class that consisted of binder organization, note taking, learning how to prioritize assignments, breaking down long-term assignments into shorter tasks, utilizing subject folders, highlighting key information in each class and building a note card file. Many students found success from this class.
