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.

ADD/ADHD

Having taught for ten years, I have worked with a number of students with ADD and ADHD. I implement different strategies when working with children who have ADD and ADHD, to ensure their needs are being met. The success that these students attain while working with me is commendable.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have had my Elementary Education teaching certificate from the state of Illinois for 12 years. I taught sixth grade for three of those years, as well as third and fourth grades for two of those years. I am well-versed in elementary curriculum. I have also tutored a number of second, third, fourth, and fifth graders the past few years.

Study Skills

I taught middle school for ten years, which included teaching students how to effectively study for tests, how to manage their time, and how to take notes effectively. I also teach these skills and strategies to the students who I currently tutor. Knowing how to study, make outlines, take notes, and mange time are all important skills that students need in order to be successful. I incorporate these skills into my lessons with students.

Tennis

I have played tennis for 25 years. This includes taking private and group lessons. I was a four-year Varsity tennis player in high school, qualifying for the state tournament during three of those years. I have taught tennis to small groups of kids for the past few years.
