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 have taught English in the classroom for 30 years. Since retiring I have tutored students in using correct of English grammar in speaking as well as writing.
I majored in English and completed my undergraduate and graduate degrees at the University of South Carolina prior to my teaching career.
I enjoy working with students who want to improve their use of the English language.

Grammar

I have a BA.MA. and EdS From the University of South Carolina with a major and secondary education in the teaching subjects of both English and Latin. I am certified in both English and Latin and have taught a combination of both subjects for 30 years. I am now retired and enjoy tutoring students who are struggling to learn English grammar. I try to make learning of grammar easier by giving examples that students use use in their everyday speech to illustrate the grammar rules . For example, in teaching active and passive voice, I have them recall a football game in which a player is kicking the football and active voice and the ball is kicked by the football player in the passive voice. This example, as well as others gives students a picture they can use to remember a grammar principle that otherwise might be a challenge to understand.

Latin

I have taught Latin for 30 years on the secondary level. My students have ranged from 6-12 grade. I find that often a Latin student needs my help in understanding English grammar in order to work with translating a Latin sentence.

Vocabulary

Teaching vocabulary was always a part of my lesson plans as a certified teacher of English for 30 years in both public and private classrooms. It was part of the
curriculum to teach lists from vocabulary texts and literature selections. I also taught words each day from previous PSAT and SAT exams.
Teaching prefix suffix and root meanings was a part of my instruction to make learning new words easier.
