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.

Career Development

I have 15 years of professional experience and a very diverse background educational and professional background. With a doctorate degree in Educational Psychology, I have been a team member of unique projects in many arenas including, education, psychology, teacher training, teaching undergraduate and graduate students, medicine, public health, statistics, counseling, communications, and marketing. I also owned my own research consulting business for 7 years.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have two years of tutor and tutor management experience with elementary students, particularly in the areas of math, reading, spelling, and phonics. I have a diverse educational and professional background, with a doctorate degree in Educational Psychology, a masters in counseling, and a bachelors degree in psychology with a minor in biology. I have worked in the psychology, public health, medical research, and communication arenas.

Grammar

I have successfully written and edited papers and curriculum for a wide audience, including business, science, education, and psychology.

Phonics

I have two years of tutoring and tutor management experience. I taught phonics to children in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades, including ESL students.

Study Skills

Study skills are an essential part of the learning process. Organization, understanding teacher expectations, and review and practice are key components to obtaining excellent study skills. I try to make studying fun for students so they can really connect with the curriculum.
