My first tutoring experience was when I was a senior at University of Minnesota and tutored a graduate student from Japan in English grammar and correct pronunciation. I have taught GED and high school completion preparation, as well as basic skill college courses. I also have instructed in Sociology, Psychology, Women's Studies and College Survival.
I have instructed and tutored in a community college, on the Umatilla Indian Reservation, in a county jail and in an Oregon State Penitentiary. I have created and managed a college-wide tutoring program and provided accommodations for students with disabling characteristics.

In addition, I like people who want to learn; I like encouraging them as I teach; I like working with them as they go from where they are to where they want to go.

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.
