Dear Potential Student (and Family):
As an adult who recently returned to college and earned my Bachelor of Arts in Social Sciences, I quickly remembered how difficult it is for a person to struggle with school studies. It must be particularly trying for young people in today's world to immerse themselves in the school curriculum at the same time that electronic stimuli (TV, phones, I-net, texts, etc.) are invading their thoughts. Despite such distractions, you, the student, can and should still do quite well in school. You can have ALL of those electronic "things" taken from you, but NOBODY can take away your education. It is yours to keep, yours to build, and yours to be proud of. YOURS.
I have just completed the Smart Start Alabama and United Way Success by 6 Early Childhood Investment Summit. I have worked with children during the past decade in the areas of K-4 Dog Bite Prevention programs, 5th and 8th Grader Career projects, 8th-12th grade community activities, plus, I have worked in a DHR and Court-Ordered Troubled Youth Residential Home. I have a lot of patience with others, and know how to work through a problem in order to help a student better understand it. I do well at thinking "outside the box", which is very necessary because not all students learn the same way. Diverse approaches should be presented to a student who exhibits difficulty with learning in the traditional ways.
I love to help others, especially children, to realize their full potential. It is a delight to see the young person's face when he/she learns a new thing, or when he discovers that he really DID know this or that piece of information all along. I have a great sense of humor, and have always done well with children. My experience has shown that they love to learn, particularly when the material is presented in a humorous or entertaining manner by someone with whom they can comfortably relate. The LAST thing a youngster needs to do is dread any forthcoming tutoring session, and I can help them to "shed the dread"!
Thank you for considering me for your tutoring needs.
