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.

Phonics is the ability to identify the sounds associated with letters of the alphabet. Phonics is also understanding the sounds letters make when they are blended together, to form words. I have taught phonics in elementary school for well over 20 years. Starting in pre-school with phonemic awareness (the ability to hear and identify sounds.) In kindergarten I taught letter sounds and blending letters to make words. In the upper grades I taught decoding new words, vocabulary, spelling, fluency and comprehension.
I worked as a Reading Specialist for over 11 years. I have taught E.I.P. Reading for over 5 years in my school district. I have a Master's Degree in K-8 Education with a B.A. major in Reading and Language.
Study skills are the approaches used to learn and retain information on a subject. There are many methods used in study skills. For example: Mind Mapping, Brainstorming, Memorization
