About Jason

I am currently completing my field experience at a local school in order to obtain my Elementary Education Certification. I have a letter of Eligibility for Elementary Education, English 6-12, and ESL K-12 from the state of Florida. I have completed all other requirements.

I also have an MA in Teaching ESL and have taught in various countries around the world (at all age levels 3 - adult). I have been teaching ESL for over 10 years. I have a BA in Rural Human Services for which I was required to take a large number of psychology classes. I also have a concentration in Literature.

When I wasn't teaching, I was tutoring. I was a Master English tutor for Hawaii Pacific University. I tutored all aspects of English for international and US students.

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.
