About Andrea

I truly enjoy tutoring! What I love about it is the chance to interact with a student on a one-on-one basis. My approach insists the student do the thinking because all learning is self-learning. I have tutored students in dyslexia, students for whom English is a second language. These students include a class of Ukrainians; a young Russian woman on her own. I have tutored college students who are having difficulties in some subjects. I find all these classes exhilarating and fun.

When I tutored students with dyslexia for three years I was thoroughly trained according to the precise method of Grand Traverse Dyslexia Association I believe I greatly helped each student work well with his or her reading and writing difficulties. When I tutored a class of four Ukrainians, each student was very thoughtful. The best part of those classes was how often we all laughed together. I also tutored young college students, in all English related subjects, and found these opportunities satisfying and exhilarating.

Next to tutoring I love hiking, canoeing, and reading.

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.
