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 am qualified to tutor K-6th for the following reasons. I hold a B.A. and an M.A. in History. I successfully home schooled 5 children from K-6th. I am currently a Teaching Assistant in a private school for 4th grade students.

Thank You
Sara K.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught ESL/ESOL for over five years, both through Wyzant and by volunteering my time for community classes. What my students have taught me is that half their battle in learning English as a second language is finding the confidence to actually speak and use English, even when they can read it.

My goal is to help you improve your English by working with you at the level that you in now, and to encourage you to feel more confident about speaking English, even if it just a little, so you can improve even more.

Homeschool

I homeschooled my five children up through the sixth grade in Virginia.

The hardest parts of homeschooling is how to navigate the varied curriculums and how to organize your household around the school day.

I can help you evaluate curriculum and figure out what is best for your child(ren) and give you tips on how to organize your household around the schooling.

Latin

I have 36 hours of professional development training for the North American Cambridge Latin series. Cambridge is an excellent reading method approach designed to get the student reading meaningful and fun Latin from the very first chapter.

Sewing

I have been quilting for 20 years. I can teach basic sewing machine skills and machine care, as well as basic pattern reading. I love to teach quilting techniques like English paper piecing and foundation piecing. I will walk you through the entire quilting project, which includes piecing, layering and machine or hand quilting. Sewing should be fun!

Study Skills

The key to developing excellent study skills is learning the art of organizing, prioritizing, and time management.

I mastered these skills as I successfully progressed through my own Master's Degree, and I can teach these skills to you.

You can and will develop excellent study skills with help. These skills will serve you for a life-time of successful learning. Excellent study skills reduce the amount of time and energy you spend feeling stressed and increases your ability to focus on task, and effectively engage in the learning process.

World History

Students are often overwhelmed by the amount of material to be covered in a World History class, whether it be high school or college.

I will teach you how to organize and learn the material required by the class. This requires a great deal of reading on your part, but if you learn to take notes well, and summarize as you go, you will find World History less overwhelming.

Writing

The art of writing is clear thinking! Often times, the hardest part is just starting the process. I can teach you very effective strategies to begin writing, organize your thoughts around a thesis, and present your material in a clear, concise and logical manner.

I can also help you improve you writing skills to suit your work environment.
