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.

Algebra 1

Taught this at Reading High School on a long term temp assignment.

Algebra 2

Taught Algebra II as a separate course, and also as part of the pre-calculus courses taught in long term substitute assignments.

Geometry

Taught this to freshmen and sophomores at Reading High School in long term temp assignments (usually maternity leaves).

Prealgebra

This subject is taught at the middle school level in Reading, and is an easy subject for me, but can mystify middle schoolers when they first see it.

Precalculus

Have taught this at Reading High School in several long term assignments. Subject combined Algebra II. And trig.

Trigonometry

Trig was taught as part of pre-calc in a long term temp assignment at Reading High School.
