Currently, I am a fifth grade Language Arts teacher in Essex County. In the past seven years I have taught grades 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 8.

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.
