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)

I am a certified elementary education teacher- my certification is IL K-9, Type 03. I also have middle school endorsements in Language Arts and Social Science. I have over 13 years experience working with elementary aged students.

Phonics

I am a Certified Teacher-Kindergarten-9th grade. I have tutored various grade levels in Phonics. Working in the English as a Second Language department, I did focused reading groups and individual tutoring. I also recently did a lot of phonics work in a neighboring city, working with 2 different schools. We focused on connecting sounds with letters or groups of letters, spelling patterns, consonant blends, vowel sounds and sight words.

Study Skills

I am a Certified Teacher-Kindergarten-9th grade. I have tutored both high school and college students in study skills. Working at a University, I also met with students on a weekly basis in order to provide strategies to help improve their study skills. We focused on time management, organization, test taking, outlining and note taking and strategies on how to do research and write a paper.
