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.

English

When it comes to English, there are several aspects to lead you to success: reading, writing, and grammar. Theses skills are crucial to excel in both college and work. Everyone has a different way of learning, we will find the best way of learning for you and build from there.

ESL/ESOL

I passed the transitional bilingual test for Illinois teachers. This test allows me to teach ESL and a foreign language. I have also volunteered as an ESL tutor for a Polish student and Hispanic students.

Literature

Many students find themselves feeling frustrated when it comes time to read a novel. I will help students learn faster ways of reading and interpretation. We will also discuss and summarize readings in order to build analysis skills. Most importantly, we will have fun learning.

Proofreading

I highly enjoy writing and proofreading. I have an eye for detail. I can fix your grammar mistakes and I can help you learn how to write clearly.

Reading

I can help you enhance your reading skills by working together on a book and using several techniques before, during and after reading.

Spanish

I have been bilingual in Spanish for ten years. I can help you to read, write, speak and understand. I am a certified Spanish teacher and I love my job!

Excellent tutor!

Even in the first session established a good relationship with my high school son and used diverse engaging methods to address his study needs. She continues to be both effective and engaging, we could not be more pleased.
