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.

English

I am a former English teacher. I taught 6th grade Humanities and 8th grade English in public middle schools in Washington, DC for five years. I am a certified Secondary (7-12) English teacher as well as having received my Master's degree in K-6 Education.

Proofreading

As a former English teacher, I can proofread anything. I have taught grammar, spelling, and punctuation to middle schoolers so I know what to look for!

Reading

Taught 6th grade Reading and Writing for four years, taught 8th grade English for one year, experience in preparing students for PARCC, DC-CAS reading, writing, and vocabulary.

Spanish

I am a proficient Spanish speaker although Spanish is not my first language. Having studied Arabic in US schools overseas as a Foreign Service kid, I began studying Spanish in high school, later in college, and on into my professional career. I can help beginner to intermediate students master the basics of conversational and literary Spanish while improving their accent and writing skills.

Vocabulary

Taught vocabulary through multiple programs including Wilson Reading System and Wordly Wise, as well as through academic content. Can support students in mastering new vocabulary by drawing on multiple learning styles to find the way the student learns best.

Writing

A former writing teacher and active writer, I can help students review, revise, and edit their written work. I can also help students learn to better understand the fundamentals of writing, such as Ideas, Organization, and Voice. Writing is my passion so am always eager to work with students on improving and enhancing their written expression.
