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.

Elementary (K-6th)

Academically, I am proficient in all subjects for this age of student. I am extremely patient and personable, which is very important for this age of student. I try to give a lot of positive reinforcement when concepts are learned and re-direct the student in a different direction when concepts are challenging and the student is having trouble. Understanding concepts at this level as well as enjoying learning is critical for future success and I strive to help students achieve these goals.

Study Skills

I am naturally a very organized person which is extremely helpful when it comes to focusing on schoolwork. I think I can relay many of my organizational methods to students to help promote good study habits and, overall, improve a student's grades.
