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.

Aspergers

18 years experience working with various special ed students, including Aspergers

Career Development

I have developed a course in job preparation skills which includes how to dress, what to expect from an interview, mock interviewing, and various life skills preparation. I have delivered this program to teenagers and adults.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have tutored kindergartners and 5th graders in reading and language art skills for three months. I have tutored 2nd, 3rd, and 4th graders in reading and language art skills on the internet for the past five months.

GED

I have 18 years of experience working with at-risk students to attain basic skills necessary to pass the GED.

Phonics

I have 18 years of experience teaching non-readers to read using phonics. I also worked in the adult literacy program through the Los Agneles Library system in the late 1980s.

Social Studies

I am Washington State endorsed and highly qualified in all levels of middle and high school social studies, including Pacific Northwest History, World History and Geography, United States History, US Government and Civics, and Economics. I have taught these subjects for the past 18 years. Further, I taught these subjects in California for 9 years, although I taught California State History there rather than Pacific Northwest History.

Special Needs

I have spent 18 years teaching special needs students at Maple Lane High School. This has included LD, MMR, EBD, and Aspergers students as well as mentally-ill students. I am also experienced in dealing with ADD and ADHD students. I have taken a number of courses in special education at West Florida University in Pensacola, Florida. I can provide course names and descriptions if you need them.

Study Skills

My major focus in educating at-risk students has been to teach and reinforce study skills for success in school (and life). This includes how to find the main idea and also how to eliminate answers in order to isolate the correct response.
