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.

College Counseling

I was a college admissions counselor for a private university in Florida. I know what colleges are looking for, and I can also provide students with counseling on what colleges and/or degree paths to choose. Additionally, I have a Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communication and am well versed in writing and editing.

English

I have two degrees, both in communication. I also have years of experience in editing and writing, along with tutoring English reading, comprehension and writing.

Public Speaking

I have years of experience in public speaking, including winning awards for extemporaneous speech on the state level. I also have an extensive educational background in communications.

Reading

I have years of experience in working with children who need help in developing their reading comprehension skills. I make it fun and interesting for them.
