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.

Anatomy

As an exercise science professional, I have found that learning the anatomy of the human body to be crucial. Anatomy, especially clinical anatomy, is perhaps one of my favorite subjects. In fact, this area of study is one of the main components of my PhD research.

Biology

I have many professional degrees and certifications, all based in the sciences. Biology is the cornerstone of everything that we as health practitioners learn, and I am confident that I am able to help others learn this very important subject.

Graphic Design

I earned the Graphic Design Specialization from California Institute of Arts.

Physiology

I hold two degrees in Kinesiology, and am currently working on a third.

As an exercise science professional, I possess a wide range of subject knowledge. Exercise physiology is the focus of my PhD major area of study, and is one of my favorite topics to both learn about and teach!

Proofreading

As a life - long lover of English, I often find myself proofreading papers, reviewing writing, and reading books (mostly for fun!). I love to read, and I believe that writing and the ability to write well is the cornerstone of the academic institution at all levels.

In addition, I am a freelance academic editor.

Swift

I am an Apple Developer with an extensive background in Swift. I am an Apple Teacher and currently completing the requirements for earning Swift and Swift Playgrounds Badges. I posses a Full Stack Web Development Certification and Skillcrush Web Design Career Blueprint.

Vocabulary

I have a confession to make...I'm a nerd. That's right, you heard me. NERD. So nerdy that I can't wait for the assigned summer reading, buy books on purpose, and read anything that I can get my hands on. This vast reading experience has led to many people referring to me as the "walking dictionary/thesaurus", and I am passionate about being able to help others learn to love words as much as I do!

Web Design

I am qualified to tutor this subject, specifically, Web Design. I have recently completed an advanced graduate course in computer technology and web development, including the successful completion of a project which required full hand - coding of a website for an organization. I have mastered HTML, HTML5, XML, CSS, JavaScript, and Adobe CreativeCloud, amongst others. In addition, I have completed several online training courses, such as Codecademy and DASH.
