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.

Common Core

I have taught using Common Core standards for 5 years. One year in first grade, two years teaching remedial math to 3-5th grades, and two years teaching math and English to 4-5th grades.

Elementary (K-6th)

I earned a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education in 2005. I am a certified elementary school teacher with 5 years experience. For three years I taught first grade. Two years I spent teaching remedial math skills to 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades as a Title I teacher.

Elementary Math

I am a certified elementary school teacher with 5 years' experience. For three years I taught first grade. Two years I spent teaching remedial math skills to 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades as a Title I teacher, so I'm an excellent elementary math tutor!

Handwriting

I have 3 years of experience teaching first grade where they work on their handwriting. I also have 2 years of experience reviewing and perfecting cursive skills with 4th graders.

Homeschool

As a certified teacher with 7 years of experience, I feel I am fully capable of instructing in a homeschool setting. My experience comes from varied elementary grades and varied class/group sizes. I think that helps equip me to teach one-on-one or in a small group setting.

Phonics

I earned my bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education in 2005. One of the classes I took was on phonics. I have 5 years of experience teaching, three of those years were spent in the first grade classroom. In first grade, a teacher utilizes many phonics tools to teach reading.

Study Skills

I earned a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education in 2005. I am a certified elementary school teacher with 5 years experience. For three years I taught first grade. Two years I spent teaching remedial math skills to 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades as a Title I teacher. During those two years as a Title I teacher, I was utilized to help groups of students review and study for the state required tests (EOGs in NC) to help them do their best.

Maria is very knowledgeable in the subject of math and has a knack for making concepts that my daughter previously found challenging seem simple. After only a month or so of working with Maria, our daughter was able to drastically improve her standardized test scores, and did I mention she conducted the lessons via Skyp ...
