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.

ACT Reading

I believe that I can tutor in this subject because comprehension is the main focus of reading. To get the facts and the innuendos is so important in your analytical education. I enjoy helping students dissect the material and find the real meaning.

College Counseling

I am happy to state that my experience with college placement and essay writing was solidified by almost 8 years running my own business. The name was College Quest in the Newton area of Massachusetts. I did placements for special education students and for high school students who needed guidance in choosing a college. I assisted them in the interview process including taking some on interviews when family members were unavailable. The best part was helping the students represent themselves and meet their goals in their essays and aiding them to refine these presentations. It was a rewarding part of my my career when their acceptances arrived. I feel capable and professional to help students accomplish this important juncture in their lives.

Dyslexia

I am certified in the Orto-Gillingham method by Mass Genreral Hospital to tutor dyslexia. I trained there for a year. I have worked privately as a tutor after that training. I had years of teaching reading to children and adults with a variety of learning differences. Dylexia and disgraphia, and add are often in the situation. Its a challange I enjoy..I choose to tutor in my own home unless the work is within 5 miles of my home.

Phonics

I am trained as a reading tutor and certified in Orton Giilingham phonics approach by Mass. General Hospital.

SAT Reading

I feel qualified to tutor sat reading as it implies that you can successfully tutor comprehension, relating sequential ideas and answer questions in a clear written manner. I can help students break down reading matter into subject matter and express their understanding of the text. as a result we can move on to them relaying their ideas in an articulate written form.

Speech

My original training was in reading writing and speech. I could not teach proper reading and writing if I did not speak properly. I was trained in a part of the Massachusetts General Language Disorder Unit where speech and enunciation was important. I have assisted doctoral candidates and doctors whose native language was not English. They had papers that needed to be cleaned up and pronunciation that had to be refined for their written and oral presentations. They were happy to have the assistance and me to make their acquaintance. I know that I can help correct speech and accent differences to make for clarity in English.

Writing

I have held many positions and had interesting experiences that lead me to believe that I would be useful and successful as a writing coach. I have had my own placement service helping students and their families choose the proper schools or colleges to strive for entrance. I have helped candidates compose their own essays and state the reasons why they are appropriate candidates for that school. I was able to them articulate their special interests and goals. I have done extensive work in writing and speaking for community based groups raising funds for the University of Miami Miller Medical School of Medicine and the Center for Education in Medical Research.
