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.

English

I can tutor someone to read on a higher level. I can help with phonetics and punctuation and help
someone from another country improve their reading and writing skills.

SAT Writing

I have a degree in newswriting/creative writing from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, located at Syracuse University.

I have published a children's newspaper for 14 years. I mentor cub or kid reporters ages 7-16 years of age. I have written for the N.Y. Times/NJ section and many other major US publications. I love to teach kids good writing skills and help them reach a higher level of learning and comprehension of language skills.
