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.

American History

I have a B.A., M.A. and PhD in history, specializing in American History. I can help with test prep and homework, writing, and presenting.

Ballet

I have been dancing for 20+ years and have experience in ballet, tap, modern, jazz, and Irish Step Dancing. I currently dance and perform with the Morgantown Dance Company. I have experience in technique, strengthening/conditioning, and performance.

English

English is my strongest subject behind history. I took AP English in high school and excelled at English and literature classes in college. In addition, I have a lot of experience with writing and proofreading.

European History

As a history student I have taken several European courses during both high school and college. I have a basic knowledge of European History and the skills to tailor a tutoring session in this subject.

Needlework

My mother taught me several styles of needlework at a young age and it continues to be a favorite hobby of mine. I could teach and provide assistance in knitting, basic sewing, and embroidery.

Proofreading

As a historian I research and write several pieces a semester and have composed several longer works as well. Each piece is carefully revised, so I am proficient at proofreading and writing skills.

Public Speaking

I have experience speaking to the public on many different levels, from giving tours at historical sites to giving formal presentations at conferences or in front of large audiences. Through the years I have accumulated tips and techniques on how to give a good presentation and exercises to perform well in front of an audiences. From this experience I can assist people in everything from dress and personal presentation to projection and how to handle nerves, as well as creating and polishing the presented material.

Reading

I am a book lover and have read a wide variety of literature in my lifetime. In addition, I have excelled at all of my English and literature courses. I could tutor in both literature comprehension and reading skills.

World History

I have taken a variety of history courses that give me a basic foundation of world history. In addition, I am pursuing world history as a minor field for my PhD which prepares me to teach world history on a college level.

Writing

As a historian I research and write a lot, and I have experience writing scholarly papers, blogs, oral presentation, and even short stories. I have helped mentor hundreds of students through writing papers in my classes and I can help at any stage of the writing process, from research to editing.
