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.

Career Development

As a school counselor for the last seventeen years, I have had the opportunity to work with high school students to explore career interests, build interview skills, and develop their resumes. I have worked with students to utilize career interest inventories to explore career options. I also work with students to help them build and utilize job skills to enable them to obtain and maintain employment.

College Counseling

As a school counselor for the last seventeen years, I have worked with high school students and their parents to aid them in the college exploration process, college application process, and in understanding financial aid. I work to help students explore their personal and career interests to aid them in exploring and choosing colleges that fit their specific interests. I work with students to develop independent living skills and other skills needed to live in an independent setting and with roommates.

Public Speaking

As an educator with a Doctorate in Education and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, I have provided workshops and training on various topics for the last fifteen years. I have publicly spoken about wellness and self-care, cyber-bullying, overcoming obstacles, and many other other topics.

Study Skills

As a School Counselor for the last 18 years, I have worked with many students regarding study skills, techniques to aid in studying, and test taking skills. I have facilitated a school success group that helps students create a place to study, manage time to include studying, staying focused when studying, and utilizing techniques to improve studying. These techniques include reading, writing, and rewriting. They also include developing study aids and studying in groups to help with repetition of material. These techniques also engage students by helping them utilize different learning styles and multiple forms of study to help them stay focused and motivated.
