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.

Study Skills

I spent 36 years as a mathematics teacher and 22 of those years supervising a department of approximately 30 mathematics teachers. Teaching students how to study was always a priority in our professional development meetings. We emphasized such skills as teaching students how to properly use a textbook, reading the materials in the text before attempting any exercises and writing summary paragraphs as the first part of their assignments to serve as a catalyst to help in identifying key theorems and concepts in a lesson.

Trigonometry

Alg. II and Trigonometry is a fairly advanced course that requires expertise and experience. I have had years of experience teaching it to students at all levels. Even some certified math teachers are not fluent in this subject.
