About Yolanda

I have more than 20 years of experience as a teacher in 3 states. I am certified in Elementary Education, ESL, and Special Education. I have worked successfully with adults seeking to earn a GED and with adults preparing for the U.S citizenship examination. My schedule is flexible, so I can accommodate home-schooled students. I earned high scores on both the GRE and the LSAT. I have earned seminary credits, and I am the director of the Children's Ministry at my church. With God's guidance, I am planning to return to school to earn a M.Div. and a B.S.N.

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.
