My name is Jon and I have been tutoring for more than ten years. I first got started tutoring when I was teaching Science and Social Studies in 3rd and 4th grade. Some of my students needed extra help with homework so I began working with them. There grades improved and their attitude in class did also. I continued working with elementary students in Math and Reading. I have tutored students in home and at school. I have worked with students in grades three through five. I worked with 5th grader who was reading on a 3rd grade level and improved his Reading grades. I have taught several students how to do basic multiplication.
The one thing most students do not know how to do is study. What are the barriers to study? When working with students on any subject I emphasize never going by a word they do not understand. It is that lack of understanding that is behind students not wanting to learn. If the student does not know the term we get it defined then magically they understand what they read. In doing Math drill is very important. I drill students on basic multiplication facts so they know them by heart. Its not enough just to learn it for the test. With this foundation they are able to do higher math.

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.
