Student: Take it from someone who has seen it through, the time and energy you are spending now on your education IS going to matter in the direction of your life! A strong K-12 education prepares you for college, which in turn provides you with not only a degree which will help you get a better job, but also with an objective understanding of the world. This understanding will in turn affect every relationship in your life, from family and friends, to fellow workers, to your community, and there is no time like right now to get started on paving the way to a better future!
Parents: I can remember, as can most people, a few particular people who made a profound difference in my life, and at the top of that list are my parents and two teachers. When I think back about what it was that made these two teachers stand out it can best be summed up in two words: passion, and compassion. They had a passion for the subject they taught, as well as for teaching in general, and they had the compassion to relate to me one-on-one so that I could learn the specific things I needed at that time. They truly understood and believed in the importance of education and how it would affect the rest of my life.
Education: Three and a half years at Idaho State University in the field of psychology, with a minor in English. I am currently in the process of completing my BA and from there I will go on to a Master's program.
Experience: By home-schooling my younger daughter through high school (she is now in her third year at Boise State University and has a GPA of 3.97) I found that I love teaching and doing one-on-one tutoring. You will find that I not only have the ability to help you grasp difficult subjects and concepts, but that I will make it fun in the process. Nothing I can say here will be as convincing as your first session to see how together we can make you a more successful student.
