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.

Algebra 1

I have tutored algebra in a school, library, and home setting. I look forward to helping you with a particular area.

American History

I've taught American history the last 4 years at various levels (middle vs. high), contexts (emphasis on minorities in American History vs. a government approach). I have experience teaching about topics like the Constitution, other primary sources, social movements, and migration patterns.

Social Studies

I am capable and have experience teaching and tutoring World History, African American History, American History, Geography, and Political Science. I have developed excellent note-taking skills, study skills, outlining techniques, and mnemonic devices for these subjects.

Study Skills

I have taught for the past seven years. I'm capable of providing organizational techniques, use of manipulative/ mnemonic devices for many topics, I have taught ways to organize self/materials/etc. I've been able to get students to read and take notes that best work for them. Systems of organization and study work best for the student, and together we can develop the best methods for your student.

World History

I've taught this subject many times over the past seven years. From conflicts, to migrations, to culture, and exploration, I know the themes and can provide explanation necessary for a strong foundation.
