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.

American History

I have four years of teaching experience in American History. I have a BA in History from Michigan State University.

English

I have taught English and Creative Writing for the past 4 years. I am an avid reader and writer. I have a lot of experience with different types of writing genres as well as with citations. I can assist with grammar, word choice, adding detail, and other aspects of improving writing.

Social Studies

Social Studies includes many aspects of the social sciences including, but not limited to: Geography, history, anthropology, political science/government, economics and civics. Social Studies often focus on the interrelationships among these various disciplines.

I have taken and passed the Michigan Test for Teacher Certification in Social Studies. That means I am Highly Qualified to teach Social Studies to 6-12 graders in the state of Michigan.

As a Social Studies teacher, I have a lot of experience in teaching these subjects. I have successfully taught U.S. History and ancient civilizations for 4 years in a middle school setting. I also have experience teaching geography and current events.

Study Skills

Study Skills include many important aspects required for academic success. Things I would focus on when teaching study skills are test-taking strategies, organization of writing, personal organization (finding a system that works for homework), reviewing of notes, and note-taking skills.

I teach middle school students, and one of the biggest challenges I see with them is the difficulty of balance. I spend a lot of time with students working on time management, organization, and setting routines. This has helped tremendously and has helped many students be more successful.
