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.

English

I graduated from University of Hartford summa cum laude with a degree in English.

General Computer

I have been using computers my entire life. I can teach basic skills such as typing, how to connect to a wireless network, etc.

Grammar

As part of my studies at the University of Hartford, I learned the intricacies of grammar in order to better proofread and edit writing.

Guitar

I've been playing guitar for nine years. I took guitar classes in high school and took 5 years of lessons from Rich Roger in two different studios (I moved with him when he changed studios). I am the lead guitarist in a band, the Caped Crusaders, who were finalists in 104.1's Talent Warz in Winter 2011-2012.

Literature

I have taken courses in African-American literature; short fiction; poetry; existential literature; myth, legend, and folklore; Chaucer; D.H. Lawrence; medieval literature in translation; and assisted Professor Amanda Walling in teaching her class "Inventing the Past." I am also an avid reader outside of school.

Microsoft Word

I have been using Microsoft Word since 1995. I have Word 2010 and am familiar with the new features.

Music Theory

I have been studying music theory for as long as I have been playing guitar. I am well versed in chord and scale construction, voice leading, and many of the other complicated part of music theory.

Proofreading

I have taken college courses in professional editing and have been freelance editing since I graduated. I also have experience proofreading as a member of the editorial board for Aerie, University of Hartford's Literary Magazine, over the last two years.

Reading

I am an avid reader.

SAT Reading

I have a degree in English from the University of Hartford. I am also familiar with standardized tests. I have taken the SATs, ACTs, GREs, and the Praxis in the last five years with good results.

SAT Writing

I graduated from the University of Hartford with a degree in English in May. While there, I focused on honing my writing.

Vocabulary

As a result of all of the reading I do, I believe that I have a good grasp of vocabulary. I believe the best way to learn vocabulary is by making connections with other, more familiar, concepts.

Writing

I took eight different writing courses in college. I am working as a freelance writer now and have had work published in the Missouri Review and the website winning writers.
