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.

Reading

I have worked with K - 8 students specifically in reading through a program called H.E.R.O.S in Andover Township public schools as well as privately in my own business.

SAT Reading

I have developed my own method of grammar skills, preparation, and practice that I've found to be extremely helpful for students. I go over the key grammar elements that appear most often on the test and make sure the student can recognize and understand those concepts, better preparing him/her for the test.

SAT Writing

As a professional writer and tutor for 20 years I am familiar with all aspects writing and testing. I can provide step-by-step instruction to improve writing skills and process.
