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 a highly qualified and certified K-6 teacher. I have taught K-5th grades for 15 years.

Elementary Math

I am a certified (K-6) teacher. I am highly qualified to teach K-6 math, reading, and writing.

Phonics

I have taught K-1 for 12+ years and have substantial experience teaching phonics for reading and fluency.

Reading

I have taught K-1 reading for 15 years. I will assess reading skills to determine what gaps need to be filled to become a successful reader! Phonics, decoding, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension are all vital elements for reading!

Writing

Writing and reading work in tandem. I have experience with teaching writing to K-6 grade students. I use a rubric for scoring and for a student to be involved in the assessment of their own writing.
