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.

ISEE

I have taught the ISEE for several tutoring companies and students for the last 10 years. I have worked with standardized testing across the board for this entire time. The ISEE, used to help young people get into a prestigious high school, is the alternate test to the SSAT. I also have written and developed ISEE materials for a tutoring company in California.

Theatre

I have been acting since the age of 10. I have been a professional actress for nearly 20 years and am a member of the unions for both stage and film. I have a Master's of Fine Arts in Classical Acting from the Shakespeare Theatre Company's Academy for Classical Acting at the George Washington University.
