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.

ADHD

I am a NYS Certified Teacher of Students with Disabilities Language Arts 7-12. I have 10 years working with students with ADD/ADHD and can assist with management techniques and can tutor in English.

Adobe InDesign

I have been using InDesign for 3 years. It is my go-to program. I actually prefer it over Microsoft Word because you have complete control of the layout. I am patient and have taught computer classes before. I will be able to tutor InDesign with no problem.

English

I have a wide range of resources to tutor in many aspects of English.

Literacy: I have been trained in the REWARDS Reading Program, and have had exposure to the Wilson Reading Program.

Reading Comprehension: I have a variety of exercises and strategies to improve Vocabulary and Reading Comprehension.

Writing: I cater my teaching of writing to the needs and understanding of my students. My techniques can range from templates to exploring critical thinking processes.

NYS English Exams: I have many resources that will prepare you for NYS Exams in English.

Microsoft Publisher

I have been using Publisher for over 10 years. I use even more advanced programs such as InDesign. I tutor people in Publisher on my job and can submit samples of items made in Publisher if necessary.

Phonics

I have been trained in the Rewards Reading Program and and currently tutoring with the Phonics for Reading Program. Both of these programs are by Anita Archer.

Regents

I would like to be listed under the English Regents Exam. I have prepared students to take this exam for the 16 years I have been teaching High School English in English and Special Education.

Study Skills

I am a NYC Teacher and have 10 years experience teaching students. I work with Special Education students and can tutor in organization and study techniques.
