Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I'm a certified teacher with 11 years of experience. In my years as a classroom teacher, I had the opportunity to teach in four different states (a benefit of being a military spouse). I've taught grades 3-8 and have experience in both public and private schools. Being in a variety of school systems with students of different ages helped me develop my skills as an effective teacher. One of the things I enjoy most about tutoring is having the opportunity to use my skills one-on-one to help children experience a love of learning and a sense of success.

Elementary Math

Math doesn't have to be mysterious. It doesn't have to be confusing and stressful. As an elementary teacher, I looked for ways to make math fun, interesting, and relevant for my students. I'm able to bring those same strategies to the students I tutor. My goal is to help my students see that math is a type of puzzle and a game. It doesn't have to be scary or frustrating.

Handwriting

As a third grade teacher, instruction and evaluation of cursive handwriting was part of the curriculum. I also found that providing feedback on handwriting and giving any needed assistance was an ongoing and critical aspect of my job as a teacher in each of the grades (3-8) I taught. Teaching and evaluating handwriting was also a component of my responsibilities as an ESL tutor.

Study Skills

Knowing how to study effectively can help alleviate student frustration while increasing learning and mastery. As a classroom teacher and as a tutor, I've found that helping students identify their learning style is the first step to more effective studying. From that point, I teach them specific study strategies and techniques that are aligned with how they learn best.
