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.

ADD/ADHD

I have a master's in teaching with specialization in English as a second language. I have a bachelor's degree in psychology also, with experience as a psychiatric technician. I am very familiar with ADHD coaching techniques and school needs since my own son has ADHD. I would look forward to helping another child with ADHD.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a Master's in Teaching with a focus in English as a Second Language for grades K-12. I have experience teaching in most grades K-12 in both regular and ESL classrooms. I have at least 5 years experience teaching. I especially am experienced with grades K-6. I am up to date on modern teaching practices and research especially for reading. I was taught to use the Communicative approach to language teaching which focuses on solving real world communicative problems using the target language. I would apply my experience with realia, hands on practice, projects, real world purposes, and making the lessons meaningful, interesting and fun to the learner.
