I enjoy walking alongside of others in a patient and supportive way. My methods for tutoring include helping students identify the problem areas by organizing thoughts and outlining goals. I especially enjoy assisting students with college paper writing in either MLA, or APA format. With a Master's in professional counseling, I have experience in both writing papers in Psychology, and assisting others with Psychology topics. I have helped high school students organize and write English papers. If a good thesis is needed, let's explore your options together.

My experience includes tutoring college students with Psychology papers in APA style, and English 101 creative writing projects in MLA format. In addition, I have tutored high school students with Language Arts writing assignments. The students I tutored were able to bring their writing grade up and learn important organizational tools. I have also helped middle school students research and write their first research papers.
While some see writing as a daunting task, I see it as a fun challenge to be explored. I look forward to working together on your next writing assignment. Dawna

Bible Studies

For six years, I wrote my own Bible study program specifically for junior high and high school girls whom I taught on a weekly basis. In addition, I went to Grand Canyon University where both New and Old Testament Bible study courses were a requirement for graduation.

Career Development

I am qualified to tutor all aspects of career development. Super's life span teaches both individual self concept as well as learning that happens throughout an individual's career. I am able to identify through Holland's personality development, which personality type a student fits into for career development. I have worked with students using these theories, which has helped them solidify career choices. I have a Master's in Professional Counseling.

College Counseling

I have a Master's in Professional Counseling, with an emphasis on Trauma, Abuse and Deprivation. Currently, I tutor psychology with InstaEDU.com helping students write methods and research papers in APA format. In addition, I have several years of individual and group counseling experience. I work with students looking at the college application process, and helping them to complete needed forms for entrance. I assist high school students with college entrance essays, working through the various prompts. In addition, I am available to help students explore majors and needed prerequisites.
