I'm a trained high school English teacher with teaching and tutoring experience. I prefer tutoring to teaching because of the 1:1 ratio. My overall tutoring goal is to help the student become a self-confident autonomous learner with the basic tools and foundation to learn any subject. I emphasize joy in learning and focus the student's attention on the entertaining and rewarding aspects of academia in order to curtail boredom or discouragement. Learning is fun!

I have taught a variety of student populations from urban to suburban and rural schools. I've taught students who have struggled and students who have thrived in the academic environment. My specialty is composition -- how to organize and write a coherent yet stimulating paper. However, I can effectively tutor in all of the humanity subjects. I look forward to helping you achieve your goals!

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.

Basketball

I played basketball for many years from age 10 all the way through high school. I know the skills and strategies involved in the game. I am an athlete who enjoys competitive sports.

Public Speaking

One of my college Minors was Speech. I took many classes to prepare me to speak in public in front of a crowd. Speech was an essential part of my becoming a qualified teacher.

Religion

My Masters degree is in Religion and Philosophy with an emphasis in Women's Spirituality. I studied the religions of different world cultures from prehistoric to contemporary times, from modern to indigenous cultures, from western to eastern cultures. I am fully equipped to tutor this subject.

Volleyball

I played volleyball competitively for six years. I have experience hitting, serving and setting. I was elected by the coaches to the all county team and was scouted by college coaches. I am an athlete and instead of choosing to play volleyball in college I chose to play tennis. I am a personal trainer and a group exercise instructor and so I am knowledgeable of anatomy, physiology and body mechanics and have experience motivating and coaching others.

Writing

I have taught English, composition, and grammar to students of all ages and have helped many develop an enjoyment for writing. I am proficient in composition, as I have had the pleasure of composing many essays, research papers and a master's thesis.
