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.

Business

I have 6 years of entrepreneurial experience owning and managing a cafe. I have had 10 years of experience in the management of employees and projects in small business and corporate arenas, and 3 years in corporate sales training.

Cooking

I am proficient in home cooking for small groups, families and individuals. I have 30 years experience with cooking and baking and 6 years professional experience baking in a cafe business.

Elementary (K-6th)

For 10 years I have worked with 2nd through 7th grade children helping them learn to be successful. My understanding of the different communication and learning needs of children helps them to feel comfortable and improve their confidence in themselves resulting in better performance in school. My trainings have included linguistics, literacy, and language arts, and I have applied them to children who are native English speakers as well as second language learners. I teach reading strategies such as prediction, contextual vocabulary and drawing on previous knowledge to improve comprehension. Many of the students I have worked with have struggled with math, and I have helped them understand the concepts and improve their performance in that area using games, puzzles and practical applications.

ESL/ESOL

I am a native English speaker and hold CELTA certification by Cambridge University and International House Miami to teach English as a Foreign or Second Language. I completed my certification in February 2012. I have experience working as an ESL teacher for language schools in the Miami area teaching ESL to children and adults, individually and in groups.
