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.
In college I had a very good friend who suffered from ADD and ADHD. In my friendship with her I learned quite a bit about this disorder, such as that these people need help and care and treatment. While I have not tutored per se, my friendship with this woman taught me quite a bit about this disorder and I am willing to help children learn to cope with this and also have suggestions on how to help the poor concentration aspect of ADD/ADHD.
Several of my family members have had issues with Aspergers syndrome, namely my father and my cousin, and as a child I expressed some of these traits myself. With interacting with other children and professional therapy I learned to overcome the social awkwardness of this disorder while still retaining the positive aspects of this widely misunderstood diagnosis. I have worked with a high functioning autistic child during the time I was employed at a daycare. I desire to help both children diagnosed with this disorder and their parents to understand that it is not something that means their child cannot have a normal life or be part of society and also encourage these children to learn social skills to interact with others but to still pursue their special, intense interest or interests that come with this diagnosis.
I am certified in ESL and have taught ESL in Argentina and also to students in the US.
I have long been interested and fascinated by not only my own religion but all other religions on this planet. I consider religion something we cannot get away from and thus I work to help people understand religious differences. My best friend being a Muslim and my own independent studies of both Eastern and Western religion as well as an in depth study of both the history of the Church and the Bible gives me a unique and modern perspective on the religions of this quickly changing world.
