I am a tutor and academic coach with a BA in Anthropology and a MA in Medieval History. My diverse education and work history has allowed me to be adept at tutoring in various subjects. I have many years experience tutoring K-8 math, pre-algebra, geometry, English, reading, and language arts. With a minor in linguistics, I also have advanced English and writing skills. During the time I was not working as a tutor I worked as a Program Specialist and Regional Representative for leading tutoring companies throughout California. I assessed students and helped develop their individual learning plans. I have also spent several years volunteering at the Kern Adult Literacy Council. These various positions gave me the skills I need to better help my students achieve their academic goals. My students seem to respond positively to my tutoring style. I have learned to identify when a student is frustrated, uncomfortable and over-exerted and don't mind giving small breaks to allow students to regroup. I believe in establishing a rapport with my students by using positive language and treating them like individuals. I have experience working with students from diverse backgrounds and learning abilities. I am fun, energetic and very patient, which helps build a positive learning environment. I also firmly believe that tutoring not only benefits the student, but the tutor as well.

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.

English

I can offer help in the areas of essay construction, literacy, vocabulary and grammar. I consider myself an expert in all of these areas, but have the most experience in essay construction, whereby I help students learn how to write essays the proper way.
