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.

English

I have a Bachelor's degree in British and American Literature, as well as a Master's degree in English Writing. I have studied literature in depth, and am able to understand many works due to my previous studies.

Grammar

I have studied grammar throughout my education, and follow the grammar rules in my own writing. I am able to teach them, and show a student the rules of grammar, as well as how to apply them in their own writing.

Literature

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in British and American literature and a Master of Arts degree in English Writing. I am well read in American literature, British literature, mythology, oral story telling, poetry and ancient epics. I have studied literature, and look forward to working with you on tricks to understanding works of literature.

Proofreading

I know editing techniques, and use them in my own professional writing work. I edit tenses, grammar, subject/verb agreement and more. I proofread other writers' works frequently, and am quick at proofreading a document. I can teach you quick, easy to use proofreading techniques that will help you in your writing.

Public Speaking

I have studied classic rhetoric theory, which is used in public speaking. I have taken many public speaking courses in which I was given the highest grade possible. I also studied theater, which taught me techniques to use and teach to be comfortable speaking in public.

Reading

I am qualified to teach reading, since I have spent much time perfecting how to read. I understand transitions, sequence of events, I can comprehend complicated passages, and teach you the tricks on how to read and understand a passage.

Writing

I am a freelance writer. My articles have been published in national magazines, newspapers. I have studied writing, and know the structure of different types of essays, articles and grammar to construct these essays. I am a creative writer as well, and published a young adult historical fiction book about the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake.
