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.

English

I taught middle school and high school English for 35 years. I have tutored for more than ten years as well. I have tutored students from elementary age to college age.

Literature

I have taught language arts at both the middle school level (3 years) and high school (32 years).

Writing

While teaching language arts over the last 35 years, I started working primarily with 9th graders in order to take them back to basics by teaching them how to write the 5-paragraph essay that they will often have to write in college. I often had students come back to me to thank me for teaching them how to write properly and well by teaching them organization and cohesiveness.
