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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have homeschooled all my children through this age group, including teaching them to read. I also have many many hours in the classroom as a sub teacher for public schools and as a private teacher part time. I also have 60+ college hours in the field of education related studies.

Sewing

I have been sewing since I was in 7th grade. (more than 40 years now) I have sewn clothing, and made crafts. I am also a 4H sewing project leader. I have entered items into various fairs and won.

Study Skills

I am a homeschooling parent and have taught these skills to my own children, as well as past tutoring of other children. I believe study skills are a lost art, with many now doing their school work in front of the TV. I believe each person should know the basics-such as how to find reference materials, how to use a library, how to make index card notes, how to take notes, how to make an outline, how to highlight notes, how to find the main topic, how to summarize or come to a conclusion with the material one just studied.

People also need to be aware that different people have different learning styles, and they need to study according to what works best for them. Some need to write it or copy it, some are readers, some are watchers, some are doers (hands on), some are observers and others are listeners.
