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.

College Counseling

I am currently working as a College Coach for College For All. I provide assistance to students in the following areas:
*Selecting Colleges that are a good fit academically and personally
* Organizing and planning to successfully complete the entire college application and admissions process
*Finding scholarships
* Writing scholarship and college essays
* College Interview Preparation

Elementary (K-6th)

I have over 17 years experience as a teacher and instructional coach for teachers and students in grades k-12. I have worked with students with both gifted students and students in urban settings who exhibited skill deficits in reading and math. In both cases my students always made substantial gains on state tests and we always exceeded annual yearly progress goals set by the school district and the state.

Elementary Math

I am a former middle school teacher and k-12 administrator. I also worked as the lead teacher for the math department for 10 years. I am confident that given my experience as teacher and instructional coach we can make great gains in your son's academic progress in math.

Phonics

I have taught primary reading and decoding skills for well over a decade. As an elementary school resource teacher I provided small group reading and math instruction for students in kindergarten through eighth grade.

Study Skills

I currently teach study skills to middle school and high school students in the summer. These are a few of the topics we cover: active listening, reading comprehension, note-taking, stress management, time management, test taking strategies, improving your memory and setting and achieving goals.

I am a former middle school teacher and I currently write college readiness programs for several non-profits covering these topics.
