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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am certified as a SPED teacher in public education in all areas K-12 modified. That means that students with specific reading disabilities, learning disabilities etc would benefit from having me as a tutor.

ESL/ESOL

I am a certified language teacher and specialize in English, French and ESL. I have Tennessee Education certification in these areas.

Reading

I have a certification in teaching English AND language arts.

Study Skills

In the area of study skills, students need to be able to map a chapter with a few unique key words and phrases that will help them retain that information for more than a few days or minutes. Students need to know how to use key words in questions to help them find the answers in pages of complicated text. Students will discover that building content area vocabulary skills will aide them in retaining the information for a longer period of time than simply reading the chapter without any pre-reading preparation.

I teach First Year Studies with Axia college online, and also work in the public school system teaching students with special needs. Many of my students are surprised that they are able to learn the material with a little bit of help and by using some fairly simple techniques.
