I trained teachers for over 20 years in all teaching fields. My expertise is in English, writing, math, beginning piano, voice, public and interpretive speech, and SAT scores. My Florida State University master's and my doctorate are in education, and I have post-graduate work in English from East Carolina University and post-graduate work in math from Florida State and Eastern Illinois University. I have taught on every grade level from 4th grade through 12th grade and in college undergraduate and graduate schools both in private and public institutions as well as other organizations for over 40 years. My experience is diverse, and I have won several awards for teaching creativity and excellence in various schools as well as acting awards voted by the public in community theater. I have started and developed several education, theater, and music programs. Also, I have written over 16 promotional multi-image presentations that have traveled nationwide with ensembles and other singing groups, including one 9 projector/3 screen presentation that was seen by over 1/4 million people. I was a national lecturer speaking in over 40 states, including Alaska, on various teaching subjects. I still teach writing on the college level and spend hours helping individual students privately. I have recently help high school students increase their SAT scores up to 300 points, which has allowed those students to apply to the prestigious colleges and universities of their choice. Let me help you.

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.
