Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

I am very qualified in algebra I because I have been tutoring for 2 years. I have done a lot of regent prep, by printing out many practice regents. I am getting certified in mathematics from grades 1-12. I am very aware of where the math students have come from and where they are going.

In college I have taken Calc 1- Advanced and have received nothing less than a B in the course. I have kept all of my old Calculus work. So I am very prepared to aid students in calculus with guidance from my old notes. Because I am a recent college graduate the information is still fresh.

After studying at Dominican College for the past four years I am very fluent in the Common Core Standards. All of my lesson plans that have been created for the past 4 years have been directly aligned with the Common Core standards. Finally I have a lot of experience with reworking the modules to fit the student needs. Such as additional space, more student centered questions, and more engaging questions.

I am qualified to tutor elementary school students because I am getting certified in the area. I have done 2 placements in 1st to 6th grade settings, in which I have learned many helpful techniques. I have babysat for the majority of my life and work well with children. I am knowledgeable in the Common Core Curriculum for mathematics and all content areas of elementary education. My certification in New York State will be completed within the next few months.

I am very qualified in elementary mathematics because I am a math major. I have also studied the common core mathematics standards and am very familiar with the modules. I know the building blocks that the teachers are trying to create. I am getting certified in mathematics from grades 1-12. I am very aware of where the math students have come from and where they are going.

During my experience in an elementary school I have worked with students on all sorts of handwriting. Every day I helped students with their script. For the occasional students who struggles with their print handwriting I am able to slow the pace down and adjust my paradigm to help the students in their learning style.

I took linear algebra in college and received a B+ in the course. I have kept all of my notes from the course and am confident that I can review my notes and instruct students on helpful strategies. I can use my knowledge of matrices and vectors to guide students through the difficult content.

During my student teaching experience at a local elementary school I had done many phonics lessons during the ELA unit. While I was student teaching I got a lot of experience working one-on-one with students who struggles with phonics. I was excited when students learned to pronounce and spell specific sounds such as the sound /f/ spelled with "ph."

I am qualified in reading because I am aware of the common core goals regarding literacy. In college I have taken 2 literacy courses that were directly aligned with common core goals in mind. I have also practiced working with struggling readers throughout my 6 weeks at a local elementary school. I understand the sequencing and decoding struggles elementary schoolers have today.

I am qualified in SAT Math because I have been tutoring the subject for a year. I am tutoring an 8th grader in SAT Math Prep. I believe this makes me more than qualified because a lot of the information I am tutoring the student hasn't seen yet. This means that if I am working with a student who has the academic experience, I will have more success.

I believe I am qualified in spelling because I am experienced in the common core. I have 6 weeks of experience directly working with word study from the common core. For example I informed students that the sound /f/ is not always spelt with an f, sometimes it can be spelt with a ph. I had a lot of success with my second grade students, playing games, doing worksheets and a doing a spelling bee. When the students would take their spelling exams, a lot of them got less than 3 wrong out of 21.

I am qualified for coaching track and field because I participated in cross country, and track and field in high school. During high school my 4-by-4 received an all-county recognition. I also participated in D2 Collegiate NCAA cross country, and track and field for Dominican College. During this time I helped with recruiting, making me knowledgeable on what colleges are looking for in an athlete.

I am very qualified in Trigonometry because I have done 6 weeks of student teaching in the subject. I am very familiar with the content and curriculum mapping. I have printed out old regents to get started the upcoming regents prep. I am getting certified in mathematics from grades 1-12. I am very aware of where the math students have come from and where they are going.
