Hello,

I am a doctoral student from Nova Southeastern University. I’ve recently completed the coursework portion for my degree requirement and I am now working on the dissertation portion of my PHD. I’ve decided to make use of my free time for tutoring since I have been tutoring on and off throughout my entire academic career.

Regarding math, I have tutored college students in algebra, trigonometry, and statistics. As a psychology major, I am familiar with the various cognitive learning techniques and routinely use them for tutoring, which I believe helps contribute to the student’s success. I also used the same cognitive techniques to help elementary kids in danger of failing math for the “America Counts Program,” which is a federal program to help kids in danger of failing a class. My students started with D’s and F’s and ended up with A’s and B’s after receiving my help. I am a gentle tutor with high expectations and I have no qualm in reminding my students when they do not meet my expectations. I give credit to my mom for this trait since she used the same techniques to push me through school and help me get to where I am today.

I have experience in teaching undergraduate and graduate coursework and I am skilled at applying the latest proven teaching methods. As such, I believe in the Socratic Method, which views learning as a dynamic process whereby both student and teacher share information in the hope of achieving something greater, the generic roles of student and teacher are abolished in favor of a more dynamic and personal relationship. It has been proven to promote critical thinking skills rather than the traditional memorize-this-for-the-test style of thinking.

My major is not in English, but I have strong writing skills. I've published and have presented my works both nationally and internationally on social issues such as war and genocide, gang violence, family conflict dynamics, and more.

I hope this gives you a picture of my teaching styles, experience, and perspectives toward learning.
Looking forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Kacey

Algebra 1

I graduated at the top of my undergraduate and graduate class. I have experience tutoring college Algebra.

Algebra 2

I graduated at the top of my undergraduate and graduate class. I have experience tutoring college Algebra.

Elementary (K-6th)

I hold a Master’s of Science degree and graduated at the top of my class. I also have experience teaching second graders through six graders who were struggling in Math, Reading, and Science. Furthermore, as a psychology major, I routinely employ cognitive training techniques to help my students memorize and comprehend the learning material, the same techniques that helped me succeed in my academic endeavors.

Elementary Math

I graduated at the top of my undergraduate (Magna Cum Laude) and Graduate (Summa Cum Laude) class and have experience with helping other students achieve the same level of success. I participated in the America Read/Count Program to help kids in danger of failing Math and Reading. My kids started with "Ds" and "Fs" and finished with "As" and "Bs". As a psychology major, I employed cognitive training techniques to help students memorize and comprehend the learning material, the same techniques that helped me succeed in my academic endeavors. I also employed the Socratic Method to help my students understand the material rather than memorizing it just for the sake of memorization.

Government & Politics

I took AP Government in High School and graduated at the top of my undergraduate and graduate class.

Reading

I graduated at the top of my undergraduate (Magna Cum Laude) and Graduate (Summa Cum Laude) class and have experience with helping other students achieve the same level success. I participated in the America Read/Count Program to help kids in danger of failing Math and Reading. My kids started with "Ds" and "Fs" and ended with "As" and "Bs". As a psychology major, I employed cognitive training techniques to help the students memorize and comprehend the learning material, the same techniques that helped me succeed in my academic endeavors.

Social Studies

I graduated at the top of my undergraduate (Magna Cum Laude) and Graduate (Summa Cum Laude) class and have experience with helping other students achieve the same level of success. My undergraduate studies included psychology and sociology. My graduate degree is in Conflict Analysis and Resolution, which is an interdisciplinary discipline that borrows heavily from sociology, psychology, family therapy, education, political science, philosophy, and anthropology. I am trained in the latest theoretical and practical applications as they relate to social studies.

SPSS


As a social science researcher, I routinely use SPSS to conduct my studies, whether it be in the self-efficacy in predicting gender norms and self-esteem level; impact of gender, race, and political affiliations in predicting the extent to which a person ascribe to Islamophobic tendencies; or the extent to which familial contexts predict family conflict and manipulation strategies. I also trained my fellow students to use SPSS during my undergraduate and graduate coursework.

Study Skills

I have extensive experience with helping students develop and refine their own study patterns. My clients have ranged from elementary students, middle school, high school, and even college students. To assist my students to study better, I employ cognitive training techniques that encourage comprehensive learning rather than just memorizing the content, the same techniques that helped me succeed in my academic endeavors.

World History

I graduated at the top of my undergraduate (Magna Cum Laude) and Graduate (Summa Cum Laude) class and have experience with helping other students achieve the same level success.
