Hello! I am a licensed social studies teacher with five years of tutoring experience. I tutor students for standardized tests including the SAT, the ACT and the SSAT. I also help students with study skills, such as effective note-taking, reading comprehension skills, time management and research and writing skills. I tutor in history, government, anthropology, and psychology. I also have experience helping high school seniors prepare college essays that stand out to admission officers. I have worked with students ranging in age from 10-25 and I have tutored gifted students as well as students with learning disabilities.

My undergraduate degree is in Geography from the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, and I have am M.A. Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction from the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia.

I am extremely patient, work hard to explain concepts clearly and greatly enjoy helping all my students work to reach their academic potential.

Social Studies

I am qualified to teach social studies because I have my master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis on secondary social studies from the College of William and Mary. My VA teaching certification was in social studies.

Study Skills

I have extensive experience tutoring students with executive functioning disorder. For many of these students, study skills have to be taught explicitly. I help them with planning long term assignments such as term papers by breaking down the assignment into pieces or stages and then committing to a time goal for each stage and plotting it out on a calendar. I help students with note-taking techniques such as two column notes, with reading comprehension techniques such as taking margin notes, underlining, questioning the text, and using post it notes. I also help students with the process of writing - again teaching the different stages of writing including determining your audience, brainstorming, creating an outline, developing a thesis, writing and editing.
