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.

Social Studies

I have a Master's Degree in Secondary Social Studies and a NYS provisional certificate in Social Studies 7-12. I have taught grades 9, 10 and 12 in public schools and have been tutoring those same subjects for the last 12 years. My full time student teaching experience was 8th grade US History. I know the NYS curriculum (see below) and have access to the scope and sequence for each grade level.
