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.

American History

I can assist in American History for grades up to and including high school.

ESL/ESOL

I have over ten years of training in ESOL. I can assist in grammar, spoken English, vocabulary, and writing (business English, for example). I can also assist in TOEFL.

French

I can teach all levels of French (spoken, written, oral comprehension, and reading). I lived in France for several years and can assist in cultural knowledge as well. Allez! On y va!

Grammar

I am a grammar nerd that can do anything with grammar. I know it isn't something people like, but I can make you understand it.

Microsoft PowerPoint

PowerPoint is something that I use everyday in teaching. I have been able to enhance my courses with PowerPoint and can teach you anything you want to know on it.

Microsoft Word

I use MS Word every day, and have used several versions. I can do all you need, so if it is time to learn it, do it with me.

Proofreading

I am an ESOL / Developmental English professor who is versed in citations (MLA, APA) and proofreading, grammar, and usage. Sometimes a second pair of eyes can really spice up that paper or publication.

Reading

I have many years' experience teaching reading to adults and non-native English speakers. I can help with vocabulary and reading skills (what to look for). I specialize in academic reading.

Spanish

I have been teaching Spanish over ten years. I can assist with speaking, listening, vocabulary, writing and reading. Bueno, nos vemos.
