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.

Cooking

I have been cooking personally for 25 years. I have worked as a line cook for a year, I worked for Williams Sonoma for a year and a half, and I have served in restaurants for more than 8 years. Serving in these restaurants has involved an extensive knowledge of ingredients, preparation methods and presentation of food.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have an undergraduate degree and a Master's degree in elementary education. I have been teaching for 9 years in a variety of grade levels. I have tutored in a title one school as well as privately for a student in a prep school.

Elementary Math

I have seven years of working with students in elementary mathematics. I love to use real-life examples to make math relevant and interesting to learn. Hands-on activities and manipulatives are an important part of my instructional approach.

Elementary Science

I have seven years of teaching elementary science. I love to work with the content and explore hands-on activities to make the science make sense and feel relevant to the learner.

Needlework

I am an avid quilter, knitter, and crocheter. I have been crocheting and knitting for about 30 years, and quilting for about 15 years. I have knitted and crocheted hats, sweaters, scarves, blankets and baby layettes as gifts and by commission. I have completed more than 20 quilts and I have taught the quilting class at Hancock Fabrics stores through three different quilt-block-of-the-month classes.

Social Studies

I have taught Ancient Classical Civilizations for the past seven years as part of the Fairfax County Public Schools Program of Studies. The civiliations that I have taught include Egypt, Mesopotamia (The Fertile Crescent/Sumer), Mesoamerica (Incas, Aztecs, Mayas, Olmecs), China, Greece, Rome, Ghana, Africa, The Renaissance period, and the Medieval period.

Study Skills

Knowing how to manage schoolwork and approach any assignment is one of the first steps in becoming successful in school. I have taught a variety of grade levels from second grade through to ninth grade. I have raised my own daughter and one of my stepdaughters, and I have tutored more than twenty children and college or university students. A large portion of working with any of these children has involved teaching them how to approach school work and manage their assignments.

Writing

Writing is my favorite subject to teach. I write personally and understand the struggles and joys of writing well. I have an undergraduate degree in English Language and Literature, and I am National Writing Project trained. I love to see students come to me in the fall as reluctant writers and then receive their thank-you notes at the end of the year for making writing fun.
