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 an M.Ed. in School Counseling. In addition to working as an elementary school counselor for three years, I have 8 years of experience as a Title I reading tutor in a K-5 school. In this role, I provide instruction and support in the areas of letter recognition and phonics, reading fluency, comprehension, and test-taking skills. I have provided private tutoring in math and reading as well.

Reading

I have completed Gretchen Courtney Reading Comprehension Strategies Training and Wilson Language Fundations Training.
