Potential Parents and Students,
I am a licensed and experienced teacher in the field of social studies. However, I have been a substitute teacher for many years and am proficient in many areas of study and levels of instruction (elementary etc). I also have an internationally recognized ESL/TEFL Certification and have successfully taught English as a Second Language (ESL) in Thailand. I have also been a free lance ESL tutor in Hawaii and worked as a tutor through Hawaii Pacific University.
I am new to the Columbus area and am anxious to discover parts of the city and positively impact the community through education. I currently work full time as a substitute teacher throughout the Columbus area. I am flexible to students' needs and to parents' schedules, and I can meet students at their homes or at neutral sites such as a community library. My experience working with multicultural students and my time abroad has made me appreciate the cultural and academic differences of my students. I look forward to hearing from you, I appreciate your interest. If you require any additional credentials upon initial lesson I would be pleased to provide any that you may require.

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 qualified to tutor study skills due to my experience working with high school students and as a college student myself. The field of history in college requires intense research, organization, essay writing, proof reading and composition skills. During my time as a high school history teacher I increased my students skills in research and writing by several grade levels. To teach study skills requires a base in note taking, note organization, creating study materials, and test taking skills. These skills can be carried over to future levels of instruction.
