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.

Basketball

I played organized basketball in grade school, and intramural basketball in high school and college. I've played pickup games with Marquette University varsity players, and I can still compete with younger players. I know the rules well, and I can make the fundamentals easy and fun.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have years of helping young students with their reading and writing, in classroom and after-school settings. I'm a published writer and editor, and I'm very patient and creative. I've also tutored and taught in Milwaukee Public Schools.

English

I have years of experience teaching children and adults, with an emphasis on English, particularly reading, writing, vocabulary, letter recognition, grammar, punctuation, and the like.

ESL/ESOL

I learned German through the direct method, so I'm capable of using that, if you like. I'm a published writer, editor, poet, and lyricist, of several decades, and I'm easygoing, patient, and very thorough.

Guitar

I have been writing, recording, and performing songs on guitar since 1984. I have released five albums, seven singles, and various compilation tracks. I've been teaching guitar since 2001, with one student pursuing college-level guitar performance and another writing and performing songs to this day.

Reading

I'm a published writer, lyricist, poet, and editor, as well as a former librarian and bookseller, so reading has been an integral part of my professional and personal life. I'm easygoing, patient, friendly, and creative.

Social Studies

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in History from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and decades of experience reviewing historical, political, and cultural books for various publications including the Milwaukee JournalSentinel, ShepherdExpress, and Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Writing

I am a published author of music, literary criticism, political commentary, poetry, and fiction in publications including the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Milwaukee Orbit, the Shepherd Express, and African American Review. I'm also an experienced copy editor.
