I was in public education for 33 years in North Carolina. During that time I was a high school principal for 30 years. I was a student's principal as I spent much time in the hallways, lunch room, classrooms and at school events. I was also available to my students and maintained an excellent rapport with them. As a high school principal, I was extremely active in the academic program. Because of my relationships with students, I always maintained excellent discipline in the school. All decisions that I made were based on what was in the best interest of the students.
I believe that for students to be successful, they must have confidence in themselves, recognize the value of a education and enjoy being in school. In tutoring I believe the same to be so very true. On the other hand the school(tutor) must plan well, relate well with the student, have lessons that are challenging but also fun, and able to communicate to the student the value of the lesson. Lastly it is important that the school (tutor) must have high and realistic expectations and it is so important that the student finds success and sees a pattern of success.
I would be a good math tutor because of my ability to relate well with all students. I am not trained in math but math was always very easy for me. Math also makes sense to me and I am able to communicate in a manner that the student would find success working with me.
I would say the same as above and my undergraduate studies were in English and History. I also taught middle school English and History for two years. In my History classes I also was able to work with students on their reading and writing skills.
I would also point out that my daughter is the survivor of triplets who was born at 26 weeks and 31 years ago. She was delayed in all activities and really did not catch up until she was in the 10th grade. She graduated from the University of North Carolina in Greensboro, N.C with a degree in dance performance. She danced professionally for 8 years and is now the Director of Dance at a very large high school in Atlanta, Georgia. Throughout her young life both my wife and I had to work with her in all academic disciplines. She is probably the best testament to my ability to bring the best out in students. I can't overemphasize the importance of patience in working with kids who are behind in their school studies. I was in public education for 33 years in North Carolina.

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.
