Dear future students,
I'm a tutor, I'm a friend, I'm a cognitive psychology student; I like to work with people, and I do not believe that anyone should be without help if they need it, regardless of whether or not they can afford to pay. I work with people because I love learning myself, and being able to help someone else understand something -- the look in their eyes -- makes me happy. To know that I can make a difference, and help someone achieve their goals -- that's what I'm about.
I learned everything that I know about tutoring from personal experience and from implementing ideas for improvement that I learned in my various psychology classes. I have always wanted to tutor, and in high school I did; I tutored the "Rebound" students who had failed two or more classes. I enjoyed helping these students understand a wide range of topics. I am excited to say that as of Fall of 2013, I have completed all of the work to get my associates of science in psychology. It seems that the more that I learn, the more I want to help others reach their goals, whether it be high school students aiming for college or older students just going back to get their GED.
I believe that to understand what kind of care I will give you as a tutor that you deserve to know what kind of care I give myself. Throughout the beginning of my educational career, I had trouble staying organized, and I understand the challenge that it can be. I remember all of the different strategies that I tried, and I know what really works. My struggles continued in high school; I took Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate program classes in high school. Despite my struggles with these classes, I did achieve a passing grade with a lot of effort. I taught myself good study skills, and enforced these skills by teaching them to others. Over the course of the next few years I plan to get my BS from ASU and travel to Illinois to get my MS and PhD in psychology. After achieving my Doctorate, I plan to do two things: open up a private practice for helping children and young adults with family issues, and to open my own K-14 school based on Howard Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences. I believe that students deserve to learn in the way that they learn the best. The current educational system is flawed because it does not accommodate students who learn in styles other than the traditional auditory style. While the current educational system does not help students like that, I do. As you can tell, I am a very driven individual, and I will do everything in my power to make sure that you succeed.
I am proud to say that I've worked with a wide range of students. I've tutored everyone ranging from young adults who have fallen behind in many of their classes, students who just need that final push to make it into honors, college students looking for a tutor that will help the information stick, and adult students who decided that now is the time to get their GED. I'm happy to help everyone, and not afraid to let you know when I'm not the best tutor for you.
If you have questions, don't be afraid to ask; other than that, I'm flexible and willing to work to help you meet your goals, no matter what they may be.
Thank you for taking the time to consider choosing me to be your tutor.
TL;DR -- I tutor a wide range of subjects to a wide range of students (of all ages). I have my AS in psychology as of Fall 2013, though I have been tutoring since I was in high school. I believe that students have a right to learn regardless of financial situation, learning style, or presence of ADHD. If you're not sure, talk to me, I'm not going to try to tutor you if I know that I'm not the best one for the job. If you're looking for a down-to-earth, friendly, helpful tutor, you've found her.
