I have been tutoring since I was in high school, helping friends and underclassmen with English, essay writing, and literature. I also tutored in college the same subjects plus history, political science, and criminal justice. I have most recently tutored all ages in reading comprehension, English, and essay writing. I taught a criminal justice class to high school seniors while in law school.

When I first tutor students, I want to find out what learning style works best for them and then proceed in a way that takes advantages of their strengths. I want to create a relaxed environment to minimize frustration or feelings of discouragement. I want the tutoring to be a positive and helpful experience that gives the student the tools to move forward in that specific topic area in the future.

I have tutored in classroom and one-on-one settings. I have B.A. in Political Science, a J.D. and currently work for the House of Representatives as Counsel.

I believe that learning is a process that can be enjoyable. I am dedicated to giving of myself to assist students in achieving their goals as others have done for me.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been tutoring elementary education since 2009.

Also I have done some volunteer work for my church for elementary school children that need help catching up in certain subjects.

I have a political science degree at the University of Michigan.

SAT Reading

Have worked for a private test prep company for the last 4 years, and have had many of my students go on to attend Ivy League schools and other top universities.

Study Skills

I had to acquire study skills in high school and have been helping students in this area since I attended the University of Michigan. I can assist with time management and note taking. I believe that I can help a high school/college student with this area.

Writing

Have tutored many students in essay writing from Howard University, Georgetown, George Washington, and University of Maryland. Helped students with their thesis, final exams, refection papers etc.
