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.

Public Speaking

I'm a native English speaker, so I can certainly teach someone for whom English is a second language. As an instructor at Liberty University, I taught a group of South Korean students in writing and speaking basic English. At Ferrum College, I taught Public Speaking for one semester to young adults. I'm also active in community theater, where public speaking skills are a must!

I took classes in sewing in high school, and it was one of the most useful things I've ever learned!

I'm also active as a puppeteer, and I sew my own puppets, based on my own designs.

Spelling

I've been an avid reader and expert speller all my life. I'm also a published author and a freelance writer and editor. I use my reading and spelling skills every day.

I have a B.A. in Drama and have acted in dozens of theatrical plays in the past 15 years. I also have an MFA in Playwriting, so I'm very familiar with play structure.
