Northland College, Ashland, WI (Secondary English Ed)
I am a professional teacher with 2 years experience in the public school sector. I taught high school students the following subjects: American Literature, World Literature, and composition. For the past four years, I have been an instructor for the Wisconsin Fresh Start Program--a federally funded program that helps at-risk youth obtain their high school diploma. I teach all subject areas including math, reading, writing, social studies, science, civics, and health. Although I am proficient in all subjects, my specialties are reading, writing, and math. I am fluent in fractions, decimals, percentages, ratios, algebra, and geometry. The individuals I work with in this program come in with very low basic skills(math and reading). Most are functioning at or below 7th grade level. When they are completed with our program, most of them pass all of the tests to get their GEDs. I evaluate my student's learning styles, and I always find a way to make learning fun and understandable. I am a professional teacher with 2 years experience in the public school sector.

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.
