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 am an experienced and dedicated teacher. I have been teaching for ten years in public and private schools. I am state certified to teach grades K-6th grade and teach all subject areas for elementary students.
Subject areas I enjoy teaching are: math, science, reading/writing, language arts, and social studies. I am especially enjoy helping students in the area of reading/comprehension and writing essays/compositions using children's literature.
As a teacher I understand each student has different learning styles, skills, and abilities. I am able to assess the individual need of the student and help the student develop their skills and confidence in themselves.

English

English is a subject I enjoy teaching and tutoring. For many students, including native speakers of English, developing proficiency in English is a challenge. I encourage students to read daily and to read a variety of literature. This will increase their vocabulary, correct use of grammar, and ability to clearly and concisely express their thoughts and ideas both orally and in writing. I welcome the opportunity to tutor students in this subject.

ESL/ESOL

I am a certified professional with a Master's degree in education. I have excellent communication and interpersonal skills.
My professional experience encompasses working with diverse student populations, teaching students in pre-kindergarten through grade 12, and tutoring adults.
I am enthusiastic, creative, and dedicated. I am especially eager to help students achieve their goals: to listen, speak, read, and write in English with understanding.

Phonics

I am an experienced teacher certified to teach grades kindergarten - 6th grade. One of the areas I have expertise in is teaching phonics. Phonics is one of the building blocks to learn how to read. I enjoy working with children to help them become better readers. I look forward to having the opportunity to work with your child in this area.

Reading

I am an experienced teacher in elementary grades, kindergarten - 6th grade. One of my areas of expertise is teaching reading to young readers. After assessing the individual skills and abilities of a student, I use a variety of teaching techniques and strategies to help students become better readers. Using a variety of children's literature, sight words, and phonics are some of the ways I help elementary students to develop their reading skills. I look forward to tutoring elementary students in reading.

Spelling

I am a certified teacher in grades Pre-K to 5th grade. One of the areas I love to help students is spelling. Sometimes spelling words correctly can be tricky. By reading a variety of children's literature and using a dictionary when writing sentences, this can help students to become familiar with the correct spelling of words and also introduce new vocabulary.

Study Skills

I am a certified elementary teacher for over ten years. To successfully learn subjects, such as math, reading, writing, etc. it is important to have good study skills. To begin, a student needs to establish a conducive time, place/environment, and identify the specific areas to focus on. Using a dictionary, flashcards, charts, etc. are good educational tools for developing study skills.
