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.

ADD/ADHD

I have taught English for 26+ years, and have had many students with ADD/ADHD. I recognize the symptoms and can adapt my teaching to accommodate them. I give very clear directions and utilize the necessary sequence of events for the lesson at hand. I tailor the lesson to the student, and I frequently change activities and tasks to make sure that the student is following the lesson and stays on task.

English

English grades 7-college. I have done elementary tutoring also. I am certified in Maryland.

PSAT

I have taught high school English classes that have specifically focused on PSAT review. I have also taught 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade. My most recent teaching has been writing courses at the College of Southern Maryland.

Study Skills

I have been a teacher for 27 years. I have taught all grade levels from 6th through college and adults. I have tutored all levels from elementary to an adult Korean woman who wants to improve her English. I taught SAT review courses. I have helped students with their organizational skills and study skills. I give students materials that assist them with studying (graphic organizers, etc.)

Writing

I have taught SAT preparation, middle school essay writing, High school writing and research papers, and college writing courses.

Jan knows English very well. — Jan started with an initial assessment of where I am in the English curriculum. It is expected in future sessions to further refine areas of needed tutoring and proceed from there. It is obvious that Jan has vast experience with English and we expect great things from her. ...
