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.

Praxis

My name is Vickie, and I recently earned my M.A. in English Language and Literature from the University of Maryland. This past March, I took the Praxis II for English Content Knowledge in order to take part in an alternative teaching certification program. I have since decided to leave that program and teach college English instead.

Given my high score on the Praxis II (191) and my previous experience teaching writing and literature at the college level, I am confident that I can help any student pass the Praxis II exam.

Public Speaking

I have over eight years of experience teaching college writing and rhetoric. These writing courses included sections on writing and delivering speeches, including information on the mechanics and presentation conventions of public speaking. Additionally, I have about two years of experience teaching business-themed and professional writing courses, both of which also included speech writing and delivery for business context.

Smart and efficient — After just a few minutes of our initial meeting I found her to be comfortable to work with. She's very intelligent and enthusiastic. Her interview questions were spot on in quickly uncovering what areas we would be focusing on. I very much appreciate her willingness to be flexible with the scheduling of future sessions. I look forward to seeing what she can do for me. ...
