University of North Georgia (English)
I've been tutoring off and on for about 5 years. I started working with high schoolers and home schooled students while I was in college at UNG. My strengths are English, in which I have a BS, but I've also done test prep (SAT and ACT) as well as literature studies, science, social studies and math (up to algebra 1). I love working with students one on one and involving parents in determining short and long term goals for our time together. Typically, I work 2-3 times per week for 1-2 hours per session with students. My hours are flexible; I am available during the day as well as in the evenings and am willing to travel.
With my homeschooled students we typically worked through their curriculum requirements. So the lesson plans were set out for the semester and I guided students through the material, monitored activity completion and proctored assessments. All graded material was sent to graders who worked for the online school. With my traditional students we would identify weaknesses and use free online tools and resources to strengthen basic skills (e.g. SAT prep, vocabulary exercises, OWL at Purdue, etc.) as needed to complete any assigned activities (e.g. homework, papers, projects, etc.)

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.
