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.

German

My husband and I lived in Germany for one year, after I studied German at the high school and college level, getting a double major in English and German. I was one of three German teachers in the U.S. to win the Teacher of Excellence award (2011) from the Goethe Institute.

Grammar

As a grammar teacher, I am adept at the nuances of the English language. I also have mid-to-upper-level experience with German grammar. I have an English degree at the bachelor's level, and have additional college hours in writing and grammar.

Proofreading

As a writing teacher of 15 years, I am constantly proofreading student work, and often work of my colleagues. Proofreading and editing is one of my strengths. I am able to help students at any level improve their own writing.

Writing

I am highly qualified to tutor in writing, as I have an English Bachelor's degree and 15 years of experience teaching writing at the high school level. My senior English class is focused primarily on preparing college-bound students, so we practice and write a lot! I also have prior work experience tutoring GED and non-traditional students, and have worked with students as young as 4th grade. I love to help edit papers, and I will be than happy to help you with your writing--no matter what level.

Fun with German

Sam is having a great time learning German with Melanie. She makes it very fun and engaging for his age(10yrs). He looks forward to his lesson each week. He really seems to be picking it up nicely and is not intimidated with the learning. It's fun to hear him speaking the language during his lesson.
