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.

Algebra 1

I have experience tutoring in this subject at the high school and college level six years. It is one of my favorite subjects to tutor in.

Algebra 2

I have experience tutoring in this subject at the high school and college level for many years. I pride myself on making my students feel comfortable and more confident in their skills after just one meeting.

Anatomy

I took a full year of Anatomy at Ivy Tech. I took this course to broaden my tutoring range in sciences. I have been tutoring in this subject for three years.

Chemistry

I have a degree in Chemistry from Butler University and have past work experience as a Bioanalytical Chemist and Chemical Specialist. I also took three years of Chemistry in high school. I have been tutoring in Chemistry for many years at the high school and college level.

Elementary (K-6th)

I currently tutor children grades K-8 through a state funded program in IPS that deals with reading and math. Through this program I have gained a lot of experience in tutoring at these age levels.

Prealgebra

I have been tutoring for many years in Pre-Algebra at the high school and college level.

Public Speaking

I have a minor in Communications from Butler University. I have taken multiple Communications/Public Speaking courses at the high school and college level.

Softball

Hello, I am very qualified to teach softball. I have played softball since I was 7 years old. I played Varsity softball for four years at Westfield High School. I also played to years of college softball at Hanover College. I am very knowledgable in the techniques, skills, and rules of the game. All of these reasons make me very qualified to tutor students in the sport of Softball.

Special Needs

Hello, I am very qualified to tutor students in special needs. My mother has been a special eduacation teachers for 30 years. Through her job I have become extremely famaliar with the subject. In high school I planned a trip to Disney World for her entire class. In high school I also worked with special ed classroom at my school. I have a longer history of dealing with individuals with special needs. All of these reasons qualify me to tutor in special needs.

Study Skills

With every single student I tutor I work with them on their study skills. I believe teaching students proper study skills is a number one priority in making students successful. This helps them learn how to manage their time and use it more wisely. With every student I tutor in any subject I always work with them on their study skills while working on the core subject they need help with. Because of this I have been tutoring in study skills during my entire tutoring career.

TEAS

I have taken the TEAS exam myself and scored a 93 on the exam. I have tutored many nursing students at Ivy Tech that are taking the TEAS exam to get into the nursing program there. Every single one of my students has passed the exam the first time they took it. All of them have also done better the second time they took it after more tutoring with me. I have a lot of tutoring materials on this exam that I have paid for and perfected myself.

Theatre

Hello, I am very qualified to tutor in Theater. In high school I was President of my Thespians club. I directed two shows at my school and performed in 8. I also took three classes in Theater in high school and one in college at Hanover College. I am extremely knowledgable on the techniques of Theater.

Thank you so much Alaina for giving my daughter her co
