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.

Praxis

I successfully completed the Praxis I exams in English, Writing, and Math on the first attempt. I have also completed middle school English, English language/lit content knowledge, middle school social studies, and social studies content knowledge. I received a certificate of excellence for scoring in the 95th percentile in social studies content knowledge. I believe that my achievement on these exams qualifies me to tutor for the Praxis exam. Below are listed my Praxis scores:

Praxis I Reading: 184
Praxis I Writing: 177
Praxis I Math: 185
Eng Lang/Lit: 184
Middle English: 176
Social Studies: 192
Middle Social: 191

Prealgebra

In addition to having taught Prealgebra for a year at the middle school level, I have tutored students in SAT and ACT math for several years. I frequently tutor students in Prealgebra over the summers.

Public Speaking

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree from Christopher Newport University in Communication Studies. I have both delivered numerous speeches and taught public speaking to my high school students. I am skilled at organizing, writing, and speech delivery for a variety of situations.

Reading

As a private tutor, I have over 7 years of experience in reading comprehension and phonics instruction.

SAT Reading

I am skilled at breaking apart SAT reading questions into the basic, manageable parts. I will review some basic but effective reading strategies for both passages and sentence completion questions and practice these strategies with you to build your confidence in the critical reading section.

SAT Writing

I have experience answering all types of SAT writing questions. I am also skilled in composing SAT essays and evaluating those essay via the College Board's essay rubric.

Study Skills

Presently, I am a licensed History and English at a private school in Virginia. I also serve as the school's college advisor. For several years I have tutored in SAT and ACT skills as well as a variety of other subjects. I have attended several conferences through VAIS and PCACAC and have honed my skills as a teacher and tutor. For these reasons, I believe that I am well qualified to tutor study skills.

Writing

I am a licensed English teacher through the state of Virginia and earned a BA in Communication Studies at Christopher Newport University. I completed graduate level several classes in secondary education at The University of Mary Washington. For the past several years, I have tutored students in reading and writing skill as well as SAT and ACT prep.
