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.

ASVAB

I have a lot of experience in teaching and have, for many years, prepared many of my students for the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB), which includes the four critical areas: the Arithmetic Reasoning, Word Knowledge, Paragraph Comprehension and Mathematics Knowledge, as well as the other areas of the ASVAB.

Chemistry

1) Bachelors: Chemistry and Biology from Florida Atlantic University
2) Master's: Biomedical Sciences w/ Emphasis in Molecular Medicine from Boston University
3) Medical Degree from Michigan State University

ESL/ESOL

I have a lot of experience in teaching and have taught English as a second language (including ESOL and EFL) for more than 4 years.

MCAT

I have graduated from medical school a couple years ago and have a lot of experience in teaching, including the MCAT and PCAT, biological/physical sciences, etc.

NCLEX

I believe I am qualified to tutor this subject because I have been tutoring NCLEX for many years now. Also, I am currently teaching it at a nursing school. And, I have, in the past, prepared to numerous nursing students for the test through WyzAnt.

Nursing

I have a Bachelors: Chemistry and Biology from Florida Atlantic University, Master's: Biomedical Sciences w/ Emphasis in Molecular Medicine from Boston University and a Medical Degree from Michigan State University.

Organic Chemistry

I have a bachelor in organic chemistry and biology, and I have taught both organic chemistry and general chemistry at Florida Atlantic University (FAU) and Palm Beach community college. I also have a solid background in biochemistry, physical chemistry and quantitative analysis.

Pharmacology

I believe I am qualified to tutor this subject because I have been tutoring pharmacology for many years now. Also, I am currently teaching it at a nursing school. And, I have, in the past, taught to numerous nursing/pre-nursing students through WyzAnt. Lastly, I am a resident doctor and have taken numerous pharmacology courses.

Praxis

I have a lot of experience in teaching and preparing students for the Praxis Subject Test. The Praxis test is a "content driven" test, which tests their (students)understanding of what they have already learned. So, in my preparation, I cover the major content areas on the exam and give them the opportunity to practice and test their knowledge on a set of questions, which allows them to reinforce their strengths and improve their weaknesses.

Special Needs

I have been teaching for over 17 years and have worked with many diverse types of learners. I was a Special Education teacher for many years in Boston, MA, and have worked with all ages and taught at all levels. During these experiences, I worked with students with a range of disabilities including Autism, learning disability, ADHD, communication disorder, multiple disabilities, etc. I have experience using a range of curriculum, including Words Their Way, SPIRE, Foundations, Guided Reading, Leveled Literacy Intervention, Writing Workshop, Reading Workshop, etc. I also have experience with a range of assessments.

I am very passionate for the education field and constantly enjoy learning more about how to help students grow in life. In order to create an atmosphere where students can build a love for learning, I believe it is important to have education be fun and engaging . Also, I strong believe that instruction should be based on the student's, interests, needs and learning style. So, I've tried to include hands-on and multi-sensory learning.

Study Skills

I have a lot of experience (10+ years) in teaching and in developing study guides/strategies, such as taking tests, managing your time, meeting challenges, studying, learning, memorizing, etc.

TEAS

I believe I am qualified to tutor this subject because I have been tutoring the TEAS for many years now. Also, I am currently teaching it at a nursing school. And, I have, in the past, prepared many pre-nursing students for the test through WyzAnt. Lastly, I've tutored/taught all of the subjects that are covered on the TEAS.

Truly Inspiring! — Dr. James is a brilliant and inspiring man who was very patient, helpful, and supportive. I found friendship, guidance, and knowledge in Dr. James. Without Dr. James, I would've never passed the TEAS test. Wherever I may go in my life, I will always remember that I had an excellent guide in the form of a teacher. I thank Dr. James for inspiring me to become like him some day. ...
