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.
I am a New York State Certified English teacher with classroom and tutoring experience. I have helped students from 5th grade and up to improve their reading and writing skills, as well as improving test-taking strategies. In addition, I have worked scoring NYS standardized tests for an agency that serves over a dozen school districts, so I have a thorough understanding of what is expected on these tests.
In addition to teaching public speaking in secondary English classes, I have written speeches for executives and coached them in their presentations.
I can help you improve your writing by organizing your paragraphs and the structure of essays. We can also work on sentence structure and grammar as well as building vocabulary.
