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 tutored students in basic and intermediate math, reading, language arts, and grammar. I have an MA in English and completed a long-term language arts substitute teaching position (6th grade).

English

I have an MA in English and have taught English at a 2-year college. I also supervised the writing center at that college. I can tutor all levels of English.

German

I have a BA in German and am particularly strong in written German. I also have a strong English grammar background that enables me to tutor German grammar at a high level.

Grammar

I have excellent grammar instruction skills. I was first in a class of students in a Grammar for Teachers college course and have taught and tutored students in grammar at GPC.

Literature

I consider Literature instruction to be one of my strengths. I have taught college lit., both American and World, and am a voracious reader. I am particularly strong in poetry instruction.

Prealgebra

I have a strong math background in AP Algebra, Geometry, and Trigonometry. I also consistently scored in the upper range on the math section of the SAT. I have tutored students from grades 2-9 in math, pre-Algebra, and Algebra.

Writing

With my MA in English, I have written for publication and for my academic pursuits. I have tutored students in all levels of composition and am comfortable with tutoring students on research assignments. I have also edited and proofread education dissertations and can supply student references.
