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.

American History

In addition to teaching and tutoring this subject, my dissertation was on American and Latin American history. I have a Ph.D. in the subject.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have twenty years' experience tutoring beginning readers as young as four. I have developed a large file of illustrated reading materials that have proven attractive and effective with children experiencing difficulty in school, as well as English-as-a-Second-Language learners. My step-by-step methods have invariably produced encouraging results.

European History

I have a doctorate in American and Latin American history but have also studied and taught European history to students of different ages. I have many years' experience and have developed interesting teaching materials.

French

I have tutored and taught French to many students, from tots to adults, over the years and have developed interesting materials for this purpose.

SAT Reading

I have successfully prepared students for SAT exams before and can teach you worthwhile tips for taking tests in general.

Spanish

I have taught and tutored Spanish for thirty years to students ranging from small children to adults.

TOEFL

I have tutored students in foreign languages (Spanish and French) for many years after a career in high school and community college teaching. I have also tutored those needing to take the TOEFL exam.

World History

I have a doctorate in American and Latin American history and have also taught history in high schools and community colleges for many years and tutored students independently.

Great for learning French and studying math

Thank you so much for tutoring me. I have learned so much about the French culture and math equations. Singing songs with you was lot of fun. I loved it when you shared your books with me. My favorite was Asterix & Obelix – the one with the magic potion. Thank you again for teaching me so much. I will forever treasure your knowledge.
