My approach to tutoring is to start with organization and empowerment. Next we can work together to explore what information needs to be learned and use a variety of techniques and activities to achieve an understanding of the learning objectives.

While obtaining my undergraduate degree, I became involved in tutoring first by utilizing the services of peer tutors and then offering my services to classmates.

I have had wonderful opportunities to work with youth through Scouts and 4-H since that time. Each child is an individual and sometimes mastering challenging concepts requires the assistance of someone one-on-one that can develop a new or even just a slightly different approach.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have volunteered extensively with youth in this age range (K-6) through a Rotary International reading program for more than two years, which experience will be greatly beneficial in tutoring these young students in reading, comprehension and writing. I am also very familiar with providing interesting activities that foster learning as I was a 4-H volunteer as well. I was a Junior Achievement instructor for a third grade class at a private school in Denison, IA. This multidisciplinary program introduces the concepts of economy and money management.
