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.
For the last four years I've been working as a college essay editor for a local college admissions company. In this role, I work with high school seniors from around the U.S. on multiple drafts of college admissions essays and essay supplements. In addition to this role, I've been an English teacher for the past twelve years.
As a middle school teacher with 100 students, I rely heavily on email to communicate with parents. I got 99 email addresses, but one parent didn't have one. She had never even touched a computer. I invited her in after school and taught her the basics of using the computer - from clicking the mouse, opening a word processing document, saving a document, and setting up an email account. I was also selected this year to lead teacher professional development in technology, and I taught co-workers how to design their own web pages using a software program called Dreamweaver. My computer knowledge is varied, and I can teach the basics and more advanced material comfortably.
Many students today are visual learners, so I often use PowerPoint to introduce a lesson and get students interested. In addition, I teach my middle school students how to use PowerPoint each year. I am experienced importing graphics and video, and I know how to grab the audience's attention with a well-thought out presentation. I was taught that PowerPoint means "the power of the point." This means that the electronic piece is just a guideline; you are still giving a presentation without reading every word from the screen.
