If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

I graduated from the University of Florida with a B.A. degree in Anthropology and am currently working as an Ayurvedic Health Practitioner. I have successfully passed the Middle School Math Teacher Certification Exam, and am available to tutor in Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Algebra II, SAT Math, and English grammar, along with other subjects.

I have my own tutoring company and have been tutoring since 2010. This has allowed me to adapt to the various methods required to help students learn in different ways. I have gotten an 800 on the SAT Math section and know the tricks and techniques to solving those math problems, so please contact me if you need any assistance!

I was chosen from my grade to attend multiple math competitions around the state and was given the math award multiple times throughout high school. I also received 5's (highest score possible) on multiple AP exams, including AP Calculus, showing that I excelled in math while growing up. I have been the editor of various national newsletters for youth groups, and, therefore, have the knowledge of proofreading and English grammar to be able to help in those areas as well! I have nothing to hide, and will tell you everything I know! Please contact me if I can be of service to you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Anthropology

Having earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Anthropology, I feel I am capable of tutoring various Anthropology subjects. I have taken and successfully completed coursework in Biological, Cultural, Linguistic and Archaeological Anthropology. Not only have I taken these courses, but I have also taken other Anthropology courses that fall under these four categories as well.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have tutored quite a few children in elementary school in various subjects over the past few years. I have helped children with their math, language arts, science, and foreign language skills. I have also taught children at a local Sunday School organization on a weekly basis, and therefore, have become accustomed to the various learning styles of children of this age group. I feel I am able to adapt to the needs of a child and work with him accordingly to provide the child with the exact learning format he needs.

Hindi

Growing up, I learned Hindi through my Sunday School organization and received the end of the year 1st place award multiple times. Ever since then, I have taught Hindi at the same local Sunday School organization on a weekly basis for two years. This includes teaching children how to read, write, and speak Hindi and be able to make fluent conversation with other Hindi speakers. I have made examinations to test the Hindi skills that these students have learned and have substituted Hindi classes at this organization for many years.
