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.
American History is exciting. I was fortunate to live in New England for a year and experienced many of the sites from the founding of our nation.
I taught every subject in a self-contained classroom. Eighty-three percent of my students' standardized test scores increased in reading. Seventy percent of my class did better in math. I have also passed WyzAnt Tests for Elementary Math, Elementary Science, Geography, American History, Government and Politics, Reading, Social Studies, World History and Writing.
Math is a fun subject. I enjoy teaching it because it always makes sense.
European History became real to me when I tutored in Italy. It was no longer a far off land of old things. I understood the pride people took in their nationalities.
I played football for Westminster College.
Geography is an underrated subject. It should play a large role in where you choose to live. People forget to evaluate topography and location.
Government and Politics are vital to being an educated citizen and voter.
Reading is important in all subjects. A key to retaining the information is asking questions before and during the passage. I have many tricks to become a better reader.
I ran track in high school and college.
World History gives inspiration to do and be more than average.
Writing might be the most used subject. It is very important to express yourself clearly to others. Writing can also be a great avenue for expressing yourself.
