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 been teaching special education students for 30 years. I am certified in Pennsylvania in teaching students who have learning disabilities. I understand and appreciate the problems associated with ADD/ADHD and will work on a 1:1 basis to have students achieve success in areas related to the difficulties they are having in managing their school work.
I am a certified special education teacher. Dyslexia is defined as a broad term, which is a learning disability that occurs when the brain does not properly recognize and process certain symbols. The tutor must understand the other symptoms associated with this condition, i.e. transposing letters, connecting sounds of language to letters, etc. Each person requires a different strategy. An individual education plan would be created for the child for the specific kind of condition. There would be a lot of positive reinforcement offered in the tutoring process!
I am certified to teach in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in the fields of Elementary Education K-6 years), as well as Mentally and/or Physically Handicapped, and Visually Impaired students.

I have taught the core subjects of reading, writing, and math in Braille and print on the elementary and secondary level. Hopefully this qualifies me to tutor students on a 1:1 ratio.
