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.

Adobe InDesign

I am certified in Adobe InDesign by Northern Virginia Community College. I also have experience using InDesign when I created pages for my college yearbook, and later when I created fliers and other materials for a real estate office.

Chinese

I majored in Chinese at the College of William and Mary and took four years of both language and culture classes. The highest level I achieved was the 400-level Chinese reading and writing, the highest level that is offered. I also spent six months living in Beijing, China, where I engaged in an intensive language program in the summer at Tsinghua University, and both language and culture studies during the fall semester at Beijing University. My husband is also a native Chinese speaker, and we often speak Chinese at home.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am currently working towards an M.Ed. in elementary education at the Lynch School of Education in Boston College and will complete it in May 2016. I have worked as an aide in Newton Public Schools, and I have student taught at schools in Newton and Boston. I love working with kids, and using my classroom skills during tutoring.

Phonics

As an M.Ed. student at Boston college I have completed courses on teaching elementary reading, which include extensive work with phonics. I have also taught phonics when I worked and student taught in first and third grade classrooms.

Social Studies

I have studied many various aspects of the social sciences in college, including anthropology, history, world religions, language and cultures, and political science. My minor (and nearly second major) in college was East Asian studies, which was interdisciplinary and covered many of these areas. While I am a specialist in East Asian studies, I also have experience in other areas.

Very patient, gentle but effective. — My son was very resistant to the idea of a tutor but really likes Jessica and enjoys working with her. He feels it is helping him with his schoolwork and I think he feels more confident. ...
