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

As a teacher of "gifted" elementary students, I used a program called Hands-On-Equations to teach algebra concepts. I have a personal set of these materials that I would use to help them understand the algebraic concepts and expressions.

Elementary (K-6th)

I feel I am qualified to tutor in this subject area because I taught elementary grades successfully for over 30 years. I have a Tennessee Teaching License for grades 1 thru 9 until 2023, and a Florida certificate covering grades 1 thru 6, Gifted K-12, and Special Ed. effective until 2017. Over my 35 years teaching, I have taught grades 1 thru 6 as well gifted and Special Ed. students.

Elementary Math

Math is one of my favorite subjects to teach. I use a variety of algorithms so the student can find the one that fits him/her the best. I teach students that there is more than one way to solve a problem. It is important that they understand what they are doing, why they are doing it, and if it solves the problem at hand.

Elementary Science

While teaching at an Elementary IB school, four of our six units focused on Science Curriculum. I would develop games and hands on activities for my students so they could make a real-life connection with the science topics/skills.

Reading

Reading is one of my favorite subjects to teach. Being able to read allows us to travel to places without leaving our home by using our imagination. I use visualization techniques to help students remember what they have read and incorporate these "tricks" so they can discuss the information with complete comprehension.

Special Needs

I am Florida certified to teach students with learning disabilities. I have worked with ESE students for several years. I use a variety of strategies and games to help students learn and remember what they have learned.

Study Skills

I am a retired 35-year veteran teacher in elementary education, students with special needs, as well as gifted students. Over my years, I taught a variety of notetaking formats, graphic organizers and ways to research information to help students retain the information they were seeking.
