During the past decade, I have been privileged to work with a diverse student population as a highly qualified teacher: Demographics include students learning English as a second language (K-8, adult learners), students with special needs (ASD, Health Impairments, Learning Disabilities), gifted and talented students, and students with a high mobility rate / migrant population who have been absent from part of the regular school term.
Through patience and experience, I am capable and eager to assist students who can benefit from support in the core academic areas such as reading fluency and comprehension, K-6 mathematics concepts and computation, English as a second language and study of idioms and conversational English. I am also available to teach beginning musical theory and concepts related to orchestra participation: violin. Preferred tutoring hours after 4:00 p.m. weekdays and some Saturdays. I welcome the opportunity to meet you and provide individual tutoring tailored to your specific needs!
Thank you for your consideration!
Kind regards, Jane

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.

Although I do not have a music degree, I have studied music theory and classical violin for 10+ years with former DSO contract violinist, performed while in high school with Detroit Metro Youth Orchestra,attended Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp to study additionally, and am personally a former member of the Livonia Symphony Orchestra. I am able to provide evidence of my ability to play / perform as violinist and have also taught beginning violin classes at the Detroit Public Schools: after school programming (3 years).
My most recent tutoring job involved math and reading comprehension study skills for a special needs caseload student during the 2013-14 school year, immediately upon conclusion of the school day. They took place in the school library and were paid by current full time employer. Skills taught involved pacing, scheduling of study periods prior to exams, summarizing material to study, identifying specific aids such as self-made flash cards to commit terms to memory, etc.
I have extensive background in college orchestra, studied violin 10+ years as private student with DSO member / teacher, regularly participate with current employment as a guest violinist to assist music students during school hours, former member of Livonia Symphony. I taught beginning violin class for three years, after school programming (Detroit Public Schools).
