My very first job as a sophomore in high school was tutoring elementary students, and I've been tutoring off and on ever since! I've taught a wide range of students, from kindergarteners to college students, but children are by far my favorite age group. English (reading/oral comprehension, grammar, phonics, writing, etc.) has become my favorite topic, most likely because the majority of my private tutoring involved working with ESL students.
After graduating in the top ten of my high school class with a score of 33 on the ACT, I went to Michigan Technological University. Having graduated cum laude with my B.S. in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology with a concentration in chemistry, I have a strong science background, and so I find things like genetics, anatomy, and biochemistry fun to teach as well!
My experience with a myriad of age groups, topics, time frames, and even cultures has molded me into a patient tutor who is willing to adapt to individual students' needs. My schedule and timeframe are flexible; I'm willing to come to you, tutor in my home, or meet at an agreed upon location for appointments. I find that at least a brief consultation before contracting my services is a good idea - I'm more than willing to meet with you and your student for free!
I look forward to hearing from you and offering aid in the lifelong process of learning!
I was raised in a Christian home. This meant that since I was born, I went to church services and Sunday school (youth) classes every week, as well as a weekly meeting in which we memorized portions of the Bible and listened to lessons taught from it. At the age of 10, I began assisting teachers who taught Children's Church during services. At 14, I began teaching myself, and have continued to do so since, all while continuing my own study of the Bible.
I was employed for five years with BHK Child Development's Great Explorations program in Houghton, MI. This was an after-school program which offered child care activities as well as tutoring and homework help for the students who needed it. I tutored one-on-one and in small groups with various elementary aged students, and received many good reviews.
