About Tam

I would like to apply my twenty plus years as an editor and writer to help elementary students improve their skills and comprehension in reading, writing, vocabulary, spelling, grammar, English, and history. These form the background of future success in school, and the workplace. I like to say that even with math and science, you have to read the subjects in order to complete the equations, or the experiments! More than that, I would like the opportunity to share my love of English and history, and help make these subjects come alive for the students.

Most of my editing and writing has focused on aerospace, as an associate editor with Air Force Magazine, published by the Air Force Association. When I was first hired, I did not even know the difference between a Navy fighter jet, and an Air Force fighter! But I learned it, and mastered the sometimes technical jargon. I would like to draw on my experience to encourage and empower students. In the process, if I can spark a new excitement about learning, and instill a new confidence in themselves, then that would be the best contribution I could make toward their education, and growth as an individual.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

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.
