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.

Elementary (K-6th)

My teaching career includes experience in grade one(six years) and eight plus years as a fourth grade teacher. The classrooms were self contained and required instruction in all subjects. As head of school for six years, I was responsible for all areas of instruction. Handwriting is still a very important tool and a systemic approach is vital. I prefer the Zaner-Bloser method of handwriting.

Phonics

My experience as a first grade teacher for six years qualifies me as a teacher/tutor for phonics. During that time, phonics was an important daily lesson for my six year old students. As the founding head of a charter school, I insisted upon phonics be taught as a stand alone subject. The Modern Curriculum Press phonics series was used. I also successfully used the Explore the Code series.
