I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English/Education from Northeastern University and a Master of Science Degree from Depaul University. I have taught high school in the city of Chicago for three years and I have taught Computer Science at Wright Junior College for about seven years.

As far as tutoring, I have tutored ESL students in English and I have tutored children in English from Kindergarten to High School. Also,I received a Fellowship to the University of Chicago for being picked as one of the best English teachers in Chicago. I have also worked in the private sector as a Computer Trainer for the Microsoft Software programs. I like people and I like to help them learn.

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

My subject is English, which also consists of reading, grammar, writing, literature and learning English as a second language. I am certified to teach all of the above.

Reading

I have been teaching reading to all ages of children for the past three years as a tutor.
