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.

Business

I hold a BA in Business Administration with a major in Human Resources Management. I worked as a general manager for 7 years, and I have been involved in training, recruiting, development, payroll, law, marketing, computer programs such as Microsoft Office to a proficient level. I was responsible in project management and opening of new stores, which included presentations and public speaking.

Elementary (K-6th)

I worked as a substitute teacher for 2 years in elementary school. I used to tutor students after class in all major core classes. Plus my years as a teacher and my educational background makes me qualified to help students from k-6th.

Flute

I studied flute since the 7th grade to senior year. I was part of band, orchestra, and chorus in church. I continue to practice almost on a daily basis. I know I can teach and help students from elementary to proficient level.

Handwriting

I love writing. I have a bachelors degree in Business Administration in which I had to submit essays, business plans, and strategic planning. I have a Masters degree in psychology where I do handwriting plans, lessons, and reports. Besides, from a psychological point of view, handwriting improves the development of motor-skills and is absolutely crucial in enhancing hand/eye coordination. Handwriting activates the brain more than keyboarding because it involves more complex motor and cognitive skills. Handwriting contributes to reading fluency because it activates visual perception of letters. Handwriting is a predictor of success in other subjects, because good handwriting has a positive impact on grades. I believe that good writing strives to explain, to make things a little bit clearer, to make sense of our world, even if it’s just a product description.

Spanish

I am a native speaker, Spanish teacher for middle and high school experience.

Study Skills

As a former educator and a doctoral student myself study skills are key when it comes to success in school. As a teacher I helped my student to learn and practice study skills to improve in class. I've always had a 3.75 GPA or higher and I am very good at study skills. I can assist students in earning study skills from elementary level to a college level.
