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.

Career Development

I have many years helping individuals in their career development. I have taken classes through Coach Training Alliance and Career Coach Institute. Additionally, I am a graduate of Dale Carnegie Institute in Public Speaking and Effective Human Relations.

I have experience guiding/coaching individuals who are trying to find a job, or trying to get a promotion. Some services include: completing a job application, basic resume review, writing cover and follow-up letters, job searching methods, preparing for an interview (including role-playing),discovering strengths and weaknesses and unique talents, etc., and career transitions.

I also have personal experience with all of the above, throughout my 35+ years of work experience.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a B.A. degree in Education from Rutgers University, and I have permanent teacher certification (science) from the State Dept. of Education.

I have tutored 100's of students throughout my career of over 30 years, including at least 50% being elementary grade students (K-6th). Subjects include English-reading, writing, speaking, Math, Science, Study/Test Taking & Computer skills.

I also have teacher certification from Sylvan Online, and I have been qualified to teach teaching Elementary Science & Math from WyzAnt Tutoring.

Lastly, I have been successful in helping elementary students develop self-confidence through individual tutoring and coaching (I'm also a life-coach), as it forms the necessary foundation for success as they move into higher grades and eventually into adulthood.
