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.

Art History

I received a minor in art history from SMU in Dallas. I took classes in 18th century art, colonial Mexican art, modern art (1940s-1970s), history of photography (1940s-present), photojournalism, cultural history of Tibet, medieval art and architecture, arts management, music history, performing identity of early modern Europe (art and theater history involving gender studies), and modernism in Europe (dance, theater and literature history).

Ballet

I trained in classical ballet for 16 years. I graduated from Savannah Arts Academy with a concentration in dance. At SAA, I was a member of Nu Delta Alpha dance honor society and performed in numerous performances including Cinderella and the Wizard of Oz. As a member of Nu Delta Alpha, I prepared elementary students for SAA's production of Cinderella. I danced with the Savannah Ballet Theatre and performed in The Nutcracker, the Golden Pecan and Don Quixote. Also, I studied in jazz, tap and modern dance.

Elementary (K-6th)

I formerly worked for an educational after-school program, Heart House Dallas. I led my own classroom of 10-15 students in grades K-2.

I taught lessons in science, math, reading, English and social studies each day. I made learning fun by coming up with creative ways to engage students.

Also, I helped with homework. Some of the students were not native English speakers.

When other employees were sick, I led their classes as well as my own. During these instances, I taught students in K-5.

English

In college, I took two English courses and majored in journalism.

Grammar

I am a digital journalist for a news station. I write articles of the station's website. Also, I edit stories written by reporters and anchors. I check for grammatical and spelling errors.

In college, I majored in journalism. I took a writing and editing class.

Proofreading

In college, I proofread other students' art history and English papers. While doing so, I went over corrections and helped them understand the reasons for them.

In my full-time job, I read work from other journalists. I check for grammatical errors before publishing their writing.

Writing

I am a digital journalist for a news station. I write articles for the station's website. Also, I edit stories written by reporters and anchors.

I majored in journalism and minored in art history. In college, I wrote many papers for my art history classes, and wrote articles for student and professional news organizations.
