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.

Bible Studies

I have taught many Bible studies in different churches over a period of more than 20 years. I have also taken formal classes in a wide range of Biblical topics from college professors, and have an in-depth knowledge of the Old and New Testaments. I enjoy teaching both topical studies and books of the Old and New Testaments. I have read the entire Bible cover-to-cover in a number of different translations, and I continuously take advanced classes to improve my own knowledge of the Scriptures.

Elementary (K-6th)

I taught 5th - 6th grade English, science, and math at Ricardo Christian School in Ricardo, Texas, for 2 years. I taught 5th grade history at Hillcrest School in Stillwater, Oklahoma, for 1 year.

IELTS

I have a very strong background in English reading, writing, and speaking. I have taught English in many different academic environments over the years. Currently, I work part time as a Corporate Language Acquisition Trainer for Global Language Training, where I tutor professional engineers, researchers, and managers from other countries in speaking and writing business English. I have tutored ESL for many years. Currently, I am a certified Wyzant tutor for the TOEFL exam, which is very similar to the IELTS exam. I am also a certified Wyzant tutor for English, ACT English, ACT Reading, ESL/ESOL, GRE (English grammar and reading comprehension), PSAT (English grammar and reading comprehension), SAT Reading, SSAT (English grammar and reading comprehension), Vocabulary, and writing.

ISEE

I have many years of experience tutoring many kinds of national-level and state-level tests, and I have also tutored students taking specialized academic tests for entry into high-performing middle schools and high schools. I have tutored the ISEE skill areas - Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, Reading Comprehension and Mathematics Achievement - with students in grades 6-12, and I have also tutored students taking similar tests such as PSAT, SSAT, SAT, ACT, and GRE.

Microsoft Access

I have taught beginning, intermediate, and advanced MS Access classes at Parkland College Business Development Center, the University of Illinois, Carle Foundation Hospital, Busey Bank, and other large corporations. I have over 25 years of data analysis and database development experience in a wide range of corporate, research, and academic environments.

Microsoft Outlook

I have taught beginning, intermediate, and advanced MS Outlook classes At Busey Bank, I taught Outlook to over 1,600 employees in 3 states when Busey transitioned from using Eudora email to Outlook email.

Web Design

Hi, I have 20 years of experience in web design. I have taught advanced courses in web design and data management at the University of Illinois in Urbana, IL, and at the Parkland Business Development Center in Champaign, IL. As a consultant, I have provided web design expertise for the Department of Defense, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Human Kinetics, Busey Bank, and a number of departments at the University of Illinois. I enjoy teaching and look forward to helping you with your web design questions.

Knowledgeable, patient, and gave me exactly the skills I needed to learn

Debbie was a huge help when I was looking for a refresher on how to build pivot tables. She walked me through the specific questions I had, and gave me some great workarounds when it became clear that some of my issues were because I was using Excel on a Mac. I highly recommend her if you're looking to learn from an expert who's a great teacher!
