I am a tutor experienced in tutoring for elementary and high school students. I am an art history major, though have also explored Biology, Design, and Psychology majors, so I am well-versed in materials regarding those subjects. I hold high honors in writing skills, and have 5+ years working with elementary-aged children on reading and writing skills. I have tutored all through high school and college on study skills for Honors and AP classes, as well as regular curriculum classes.
I am a minor in dance, and have been teaching dance for 7+ years, including ballet, jazz, contemporary, ballroom, and all types of Latin dances. I am a patient and enthusiastic tutor, who makes the session enjoyable, not just a "sit down and do your work" type. I use real-world examples in my tutoring, so that students are able to connect the work to their own life, and better retain the examples. I find that having fun and learning go hand-in-hand, and I work hard to make sure that even the most difficult subject is possible.
I have worked with students of all ages on test anxiety and testing skills, as well as working on a personalized plan for studying. I find that personalizing the study plan has a higher success rate than simply throwing different study techniques at the student, and will work with students and parents to find the best plan for them.
