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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have worked in an Elementary school for the last three years as an ESL (English Second Language) tutor and I am familiar with the elementary school curriculum. I aid students in their testing and reading skills. I have helped numerous students learn English for the first time and become proficient in the language.

Elementary Math

I have tutored elementary aged children in mathematics for several years.

ESL/ESOL

I am a certified TEFL/ESL teacher and have 3 years' experience teaching English Second Language to elementary aged students.

Piano

I have played the piano for 18 years and have taught for 4 years. I taught all through high school and quit when I started going to college. I have taken several music theory classes and am passionate about teaching piano and music.

Reading coach for K-4 grades for three years, over ten years in experience with young children.

Spanish

I have been fluent in Spanish since 2006 and have held several bilingual positions in various jobs. I have held jobs as a bilingual editor, customer service representative and English Second Language teacher.

Awesome

Liz, had been tutoring my son during the summer & has got him reading more words per minutes from 30 to 98 WPM now, she is so patient with him & he looks forward to every tutor date, I am going to have her keep tutoring him during the school year to help him even more. She's kind, patient, understanding & that's an awesome person in my book. Great Job Liz!
