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)

My qualifications and experience to tutor elementary students (in addition to having a BA degree), includes 3 years as a substitute in K-5th grade, 2 years teaching ESL students, 5 years as a Kindergarten Instructional Assistant, and 5 years tutoring students with Wyzant.

English

I can help with speaking, reading, and writing English. I am especially proficient at helping with writing.

ESL/ESOL

In addition to having a BA degree, I was an ESL assistant for 2 years.

Reading

I have experience helping students in K-5th grade in Reading, including ESL students. I like to make my tutoring sessions focused, but still fun enough to keep kids interested in learning. I have 5 years of experience as a Wyzant tutor.
