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.
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.
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.
