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.

Prealgebra

I am certified in the State of Florida to teach Elementary K-6, Business Education (K-12) and Middle School Math (5-9).

Reading

The ability to read and comprehend is the most important skill our children develop in the elementary years. I believe that skill is best built as their love for reading grows. I have experience working one-on-one with elementary school students as a teacher, in-class tutor, and classroom volunteer to improve comprehension skills of children who are struggling to keep up with classroom lessons.

Study Skills

I am currently a 4th grade teacher. I teach my students (both in small group and one on one) to develop a process and then to apply that process consistently. To study, it is important to have a regular, quiet place, proper materials, set time and a "plan of attack." For example, to tackle math word problems, I teach the CUBE method. I am no stranger to studying -- I have applied those skills in the not-too distant past to the required state certification exams and before that to the Certified in Management Accounting and the Certified Public Accountant series of exams.

Writing

The ability to read and comprehend is the most important skill our children develop in the elementary years. Following that is their ability to clearly express themselves; writing skills are a critical building block to effective communication.
