Currently, I am a high school English teacher. I have taught for 18 years in middle school and high school. I also spent a few years as an adjunct English instructor at the college level.
Teaching reading and writing is difficult in a classroom full of students. I've always loved working with kids one on one, and it makes a world of difference for them.
I do understand that some students really struggle with writing and / or reading. Whether the problems with writing are grammar and mechanics or development and organization, I have a lot of strategies I teach students to help take them to the next level (or the level beyond that).

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.
