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.
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.
