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

On a personal level, I am familiar with such because I have been hands-on with three of my grandchildren with ADD/ADHD. On an experiential level, I have filled out many observation sheets for doctor evaluations for students in my classrooms over a twenty year teaching period. I have also been to workshops and read books about how to handle and challenge these students. My grad classes in education have addressed this, as well as countless conferences with school psychologists, parents, and social workers.

I am incredibly patient and have success by asking for short time periods of concentration followed by rewards and praise, refocusing, and making ADD/ADHD students believe they can be successful. I understand their challenges. I am very proud of every step toward mastery, and I let them know it.

Career Development

As a certified teacher I have taught social studies in K-12. Additionally, I was a SS teacher for 4 years in WA State.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have over twenty years of successful teaching experience in preschool through freshmen in college. I am certified as a public school teacher in North Carolina, Washington, and Florida. All are current. I have a BA in Elementary Education and a MFA in Creative Writing.

I have been a classroom teacher in elementary grades and taught math in that setting as well as in high school. I have a BA degree in Education. One year my third graders had the highest math pass rate of all grades in our county on end of grade assessments. I am currently certified in all subjects for Elementary (K-8) in Washington, North Carolina, and Florida.

English

I am a certified Language Arts teacher with current certification in three states. My background includes about thirty credits in grad school in English courses and an MFA in Writing.I taught high school and middle school English.

ESL/ESOL

I have been a teacher in multicultural settings for over 20 years. My 6 years of teaching in NC were in schools that were primarily Hispanic. I taught ESL (specifically) in second grade. Additionally, I lived in an Eskimo village as a teacher where I taught ESL and Language Arts to Yup'ik Eskimo high schoolers.

Handwriting

I taught handwriting in public schools in K-4. I am a certified teacher. I have a degree in early childhood education and it was taught to us in that program.

Writing

I am a Language Arts teacher with an MFA in Creative Writing. Additionally, I have written countless poems, short stories, and several novels. I have been writing since I was a small child. It is my passion, partly because I am very good at it. I love teaching it to any age person.
