I am a Texas Certified teacher with certificates in English and Reading, ESL, Special Education, Social Studies and Family Consumer Science. My most recent experience has been with Juniors and Seniors in High School where my students had a 92% passing rate on the ELA TAKS test. I also worked with those students to help them pass their college entrance exams. I've been a homemaker also, and can teach children or adults to sew and cook. Being certified to teach Family Consumer Science allows me to teach a wide variety of subjects related to the home.

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.
