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 Math

I am certified to tutor in elementary and middle school math and science, and my expertise in English will help to improve critical thinking skills.

English

I can offer tutoring and instruction at all levels of English education.

ESL/ESOL

I teach ESL composition courses at the University of Maryland.

Grammar

Grammar serves as a building block for all English instruction. I focus on learning basic sentence structures, mechanics/punctuation, and parts of speech.

Literature

I specialize in British literature, but I am also well-versed in American and World literature.

Physical Science

I took a number of science courses during my undergraduate studies, and I can offer general help in K-6 science topics as well as some help in middle and high school science subjects.

Prealgebra

In my own studies, I did quite well in math courses up through and including calculus. I can offer help in pre-algebra topics.

Proofreading

As an editor for a JHU summer program and for an online university journal, I have five years experience in proofreading and editing.

Reading

I can help students improve in reading comprehension and critical reading.

Spelling

I can help students with phonetic spelling and memorization skills.

Vocabulary

I have two years experience tutoring students at the high school and college levels. I have helped students use vocabulary to prepare for and improve scores on the SATs and GREs. I have also worked with younger students to improve English-language usage and Standard Written English.

Writing

I have been teaching first-year composition and literature courses at the university level since 2003. I can offer tutoring and instruction in rhetoric/composition and analytical essay writing. I also trained instructors for writing classes at a prestigious summer camp for gifted students.
