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.

ESL/ESOL

I have been teaching ESL for Des Moines Area Community College off and on for 14 years. I have taught all levels of non-credit classes and used many different curriculums. In recent years I have been tutoring individuals using the Excellent English series. It has a nice mix of reading, writing, listening, speaking, grammar, and vocabulary. I have to figure out what level and pace the student needs. If they need more practice than what is in the book, I will make extra worksheets.
