daughter of 21 months.

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)

I have been a school teacher for the past 7 years. I am certified in middle school integrated curriculum grades 5-9. This includes all subjects, such as English, social studies, science and math.

I have also tutored K-12 in the past. My students' parents were always very happy with my work. My students' skills and grades improved.

Study Skills

I have taught groups in study skills as a teacher. At the beginning of each school year I give a lesson in study skills. I explain to the students how to study more effectively and how to get the most out of any class or reading material. I give my students simple techniques that they can apply. The students who applied these techniques were able to improve their grade from almost failing to As and Bs.

I teach my students how to focus in on what the teacher is talking about, how to keep simple and complete notes, how to effectively recall information. I also go over the physiological aspects of stress and how to overcome them.

World History

I am a state certified educator with a subject area certification in Social Studies k-12 as well as Middle School Integrated Curriculum.

I was two years traveling and living in Israel where I studied the history of the Levant and Biblical Geography, Hebrew, Jewish History and Judaism. My studies included giving tours of archaeological sites.

I spent three months working on the Leon Levy archaeological expedition in Ashkelon, Israel sponsored by Harvard University and led by Larry Stager. We were looking for evidence of Philistine civilization. During the dig the university treated us to lectures by a variety of experts in the top of their field.

I have a Master of Biblical Studies, a degree adjacent to Theology which focuses on Bible history, languages, customs and ways of ancient peoples, the Bible as an ancient manuscript and geography of the ancient Middle East and Mediterranean.
