About Jerry

I'm 73 but along with my age comes more than 20 years of experience teaching elementary students as well as
adult students at the community college level. I also have ESL teaching experience as a Berlitz language instructor which I enjoyed immensely helping foreign students learn to speak English. Writing skills has also been one of my great strengths. I have written magazine articles as well as having had several newspaper columns while residing in Durango, CO. Most importantly, I enjoy working with students of all backgrounds and find it extremely satisfying to watch my students learn and grow.

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.
