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.

I spent more than 6 months compiling scriptures when unemployed some years ago. I also have taught adult Sunday school in two churches and children´s Sunday School in two other churches.

Chess

I have played chess for 70 years, including tournaments and on-line games with people from different countries. My on-line score is 18.

Elementary (K-6th)

I taught elementary children in a school in Mexico in 2011. I have imparted classes for elementary students in Sunday schools as well.

My textbook, Games of English, and my children´s stories in English and Spanish are designed for elementary students. I have invented more than 100 interactive games for elementary students.

I have been an English and ESL teacher and tutor for the past 20 years. I am sole author of a six-volume textbook which has been used in a major university for 12 years. I also have an American-English pronunciation book and children´s stories in English and Spanish.

Linear Algebra

I was in math honor club in high school. I have had mathematics through Englineering calculus and differential equations.

Proofreading

Having taught English writing/composition for many years has given me the expertise and method that will help anyone improve his/her writing. I currently proof read documents for SOTM, Inc., in Duncanville and work as a substitute for Duncanville ISD, teaching k-12 students. I am the author of a six-level English textbook which emphasizes composition writing.

13 years of experience in universities and private institutes in Mexico have sharpened my Spanish abilities.

Trece años de experiencia en universidades y en institutos particulares han agudizado mis abilidades en español.
