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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a mother of 5 children all of whom I have guided through elementary school and beyond. I have experience with special needs children in the elementary level and worked as a special services aide in the Head Start Program. I have also been a therapeutic foster parent for more than 10 years and have worked extensively with elementary level students with therapeutic needs. I also worked for several years with developmentally disabled adults.

As a High School student, I tutored elementary classes for extra credit and helped tutor foreign students with ESL program. I am the oldest of 6 and have always been in a position to teach and guide my younger siblings with their lessons. To this day, they call me to help their children (my nieces and nephews) with whatever lesson they may need some extra attention or assistance.

I have taken many self study courses over the years to help communicate and reach children with various levels of disability. I believe in a hands-on, individual approach to education as we all learn in our own way. Patience really is a virtue and the 'light' that goes on when a student finally 'gets it' makes it all so rewarding.

Really kind person.

Katrina (Tina) is such a nice person. She has done well with my daughter, who has shown much improvement with Tina's help.

Her accomplishments have improved her self esteem leading to her being more independ
