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.

Bible Studies

I have served over 10 years as a camp counselor, bible teacher, kindergarten and second grade teacher at a private school using a bible based curriculum. I have maintained active membership in my church home for the last 10 years.

Career Development

I have served as a high school guidance counselor and have worked closely with the career coaches in our school.

Phonics

I have taught phonics for 5 years at a private school, three years for kindergarten and two for second grade.

Special Needs

I have taken the SPE course in college which grants you the qualification that you need to serve as a Special Needs teacher or paraprofessional and currently serve as a Mental Health counselor for students with special needs.
