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.

Algebra 1

I tutor all aspects of algebra including, one,two, and multiple step equations. Finding the slope from equations, points and graphs. Solving systems of equations using elimination and substitution. Graphing, using equations.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have 8 years of experience with the kindergarten through the eighth grade curriculum including math, social studies, English, earth science and music. My math experience includes adding, subtraction, multiplication, division and pre-algebra. My social studies experience include local government to the seven continents. My English experience includes sentence structure and the parts of speech. My science experience includes general knowledge of the world we live in.

Elementary Math

I understand all aspect of elementary math including addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. I understand the concept of turning word problems into numerical problems and the importance of making the connection of elementary math to algebra.


My experience with the GRE is hands on because I took and passed this exam. I also used different test taking strategies when preparing for this exam which I would love to share with a person in need. The test covers basic educational skills in math, grammar, and reading.


I am proficient in introducing students to positive and negative numbers, greater than and less than, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of negative and positive numbers, all rules pertaining to solving these same problems. Bridging the gap in understanding that pre-algebra is the first math that students learn when they start school.


I have over ten years experience tutoring students in reading including working with an hearing impaired student. I teach students how to break words into syllables which makes them more manageable and easier to read. I also work on comprehension skills.
