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.

Grammar

I have taught for 39 years, focusing on literature and language arts. My strengths in language arts have been creating a writer's workshop incorporating expository, persuasive, and narrative writings. In order for my students to write well, they need a strong handle for grammar skills. I have taught them to allow their voices to be heard in their writing; and if they have strong language skills, they will succeed.

Literature

I've taught for 39 years with middle school students. I am retired and have a strong background with gifted and advanced 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. My literature curriculum is extensive with a strong emphasis on the classics.

Reading

Teaching for 39 years in literature and writing, I have had many encounters with students who have been successful in analyzing and critically evaluating an author's voice in writing. I have always focused on the ability to have my students relate to the real world in reading classical literature.
