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.

ACT Math

I think ACT math problems are fun. The test makers can craft some really challenging questions, but once you understand some of the strategies used by successful students, you can raise your score rather quickly. Let me know if I can help.

Algebra 1

Algebra is my favorite subject, it has always made sense to me. I break the problems down into manageable pieces. I am confident that we can help your student gain the success they deserve. Let me know if I can help.

Common Core

I have a master's degree in elementary education. I have used common core guidelines to plan lessons. I have sat in on common core meetings and a common core seminar.

Elementary (K-6th)

I substitute teach grades k through 8. I have a master's degree in elementary education. I am highly qualified in elementary education, title one mathematics and reading.

Elementary Math

I am certified to teach mathematics in the state of Illinois for grades k through eight. I graduated from Purdue where I took many challenging math classes. Math is my favorite subject and I enjoy helping students to feel the same way. Let me know if I can help.

Geometry

Geometry is one of my favorite subjects. I am patient and teach students to solve the problems one small step at a time. I have had success tutoring geometry students.

Prealgebra

I graduated from Purdue where I took many challenging math classes. I am certified and highly qualified to teach mathematics to grades k through 8 in the state of Illinois. I love algebra and enjoy teaching students to solve the problems one small step at a time.

TEAS

I have worked with a student before that needed help passing the TEAS and raised their score from not passing to passing with room to spare. I enjoy solving the TEAS problems. The last time I took a TEAS practice test I scored a 100% on the math section! Let's crush this test!
