Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (Master's)
When my children were young I was an at-home mom, and I tutored junior high and high school students on an occasional basis. Once the kids started school, I worked various part-time jobs during the school day. Throughout their elementary school years I was a very involved parent, helping them complete their homework and study for tests. Once they were in high school they studied more independently, but I did help with math and science homework as needed. Now they are both in college and are doing quite well on their own. I work nearly full-time, but have some flexibility in my work schedule and can tutor either late afternoon or in the evening.

Susan is a wonderful person. She always helps me and answers all my questions. And in any case she can't answer my question she'll go home and find the answer and bring it to me next class. She goes over the one hour time limit sometimes if she feels we haven't finished our lesson yet. She's very considerate about giving me the right amount of homework because she knows I receive a lot of homework from school and may at times be busy. I don't feel like she's my tutor but my friend. I look forward to our lessons every day.
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 have a BA in Mathematics/Physics and an MS in Applied Mathematics, and have tutored many students over the past 21 years. When we work on improving study skills, I teach them organizational skills and time management. We make sure that they know what is expected for each assignment, and if they are unsure I encourage them to get clarification from their teacher. I stress the importance of making a study sheet and following a schedule to make sure they allow enough time to prepare for each test. We also review test-taking strategies, emphasizing the need to work quickly and accurately.
