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 worked as a special education paraprofessional for two years at an elementary school. I spent my days working with special needs students that had trouble focusing due to their ADD. I learned several techniques to use in trainings, as well as working with their classroom teachers. The students just need someone with patience, and also someone who can help them work through their hardships.

Aspergers

I spent a summer working one-on-one with a little boy who had Aspergers. He greatly struggled with handling new situations, and I was there to encourage him to give it a try and help him accomplish his goals. By the end of the summer, his mother was in tears because her little boy was willing to walk across the beach sand and put his feet in the water. When I had started working with him, he wouldn't even touch the sand with shoes on.

Autism

I have a special place in my heart for students dealing with Autism. I have worked for several years with these students to accomplish learning goals, improve their social skills, and to communicate to parents what they need at home. These students are the most fascinating to me because they think about things so differently than "normal" that it gives great perspective to how communication really does affect understanding. Being able to work through situations with students (and never giving up up on them) is something I find very important and I am very willing to do so!

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a teaching license in elementary education. I have spent many years volunteering in elementary schools as well as tutoring students struggling in multiple subjects in school. I worked in an elementary school for two years and would help students daily to complete their homework or study for tests.

Praxis

I have taken the Praxis exams and have scored very high on them. The math praxis I was given the presidential scholar recognition for being in the top 3% of all test takers. The math portion of the praxis test is similar to the ACT and SAT exams and I passed both of those qualification tests by a lot!

Special Needs

I have tutored and babysat multiple special needs students in the past. I worked as a special education paraprofessional for two years at an elementary school and am considering going back to school for a special education teaching license. In large classroom settings, I tend to find the students that struggle the most or appear different than their classmates because I find them the most fun to work with. I love how special needs students can take a concept that everyone in the class was told and interpret it in a new way. Those students deserve as much support and attention as anyone else; in fact, I think they deserve more because they give such a great perspective on things!

Study Skills

I am a very organized person that likes to sort out issues students may have. I like to get an understanding of what needs to be completed and then help the student work through those goals to create a plan that the students can successfully complete. I like helping students take control of their studying by reviewing the best ways to study and when, how to study.
