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.

Elementary (K-6th)

My Illinois teaching certificate is K-9. I have taught all levels, including elementary, junior high, and high school.

ESL/ESOL

As an adjunct faculty member of various local colleges and junior colleges, I have had the opportunity to teach not only foreign language courses, but also English for non-native speakers classes.

Italian

18 years experience teaching Italian.
Grew up hearing and speaking Italian.
Studied in Italy and made frequent trips there.

Phonics

Years ago, as an elementary school student, phonics was drilled into us and I excelled at it. It fell out of favor for some time, but I employed it extensively during my tenure as a junior high teacher of English, and later, as a high school foreign language teacher.

Study Skills

As a former high school teacher with 18-plus years' experience, I believe I am well-suited to help a student perfect his study skills and would welcome the opportunity to do so.
